You know a lot more about your body than you did a short 8 weeks ago. Along with your strength and fitness, you’ve improved your mobility and awareness – and have built a great foundation for yourself. While you should feel great, this is more than just feeling good; this is also about performing better.
You should now be at home with many of the movements in your program – enough to execute them at a high level of effort without compromising their quality. This marriage of intensity and form is going to pay off when it comes to making your training sessions more productive than ever.
Just like last phase, you’ll continue to work at a faster pace. You’ll notice that rest only comes at the end of a grouping. Again, this means you’ll not only have to keep things moving but you’ll have to organize your exercise stations to facilitate that.
Your primary goal during this phase is to become friends with feeling uncomfortable. You’re going to chase that sensation in two different ways. First, you’re going to take things just a little further than ever before when it comes to tolerating that burning feeling in your muscles. Then, you’re going to push the boundaries of your own mobility. Seek out that discomfort by playing around at the edges of any given movement. Find out where your body is reluctant to go and then push it just a little bit – in every single direction.
While working out can and should be safe, it should never be comfortable. As always, train safely but stay focused. By accepting the discomfort that comes with training, give yourself the power to push your own boundaries just a little. It’s time to see where that can take you.
Keep up the good work!
