150511 - Sometimes it Takes Just a Little More

We program a solid hour's worth of work every day. Right now we're focusing on strength goals and into our second week of our second phase of Wendler 5/3/1. 

Folks are getting stronger for sure, but we're also seeing more stingers and muscle-pulls and owies than usual. Some of those are due to fatigue, still more due to rushing through warm-ups to get to the meat of the workout.

Take your time warming up. Take your time moving through the work. The only time we're 3,2,1 Go-ing is right before the hour is up. Once the workout is over, take more time to mobilize post workout. Take time to work on skills that you lack. You might have to stay longer than your hour, but that's okay. 

Make your efforts pay off in more than just getting strong. Get mobile, get coordinated, do all those things that balance you out as a human being and as an athlete!
