The frequent misconception about an effective workout…
It’s hard, you sweat a lot, or you’re really sore afterwards.
It’s REALLY easy to create a hard workout.
Turn up the temp, and now you’re sweating a lot.
Do a lot of something you haven’t done it a while, that’ll make you sore.
All you have to do is figure out where you’re current abilities lie and push yourself outside of those abilities.
Does that make it effective? Not really.
What makes workouts effective is all about the intent.
Before you get to the workout, let's start with you.
The most important question to answer: What are YOUR goals? In order to know if anything is working, you need to know what the intended end result is.
Now, back to the workouts.
What’s the goal of the specific workout or progressions?
What are we trying to achieve with those exercises?
How do we know we achieved it? What are the bench marks along the way you should be looking for?
Is it actually moving you closer to the goal that day and over time?
These are all of the things our professionals take into account when creating workouts and selecting exercises for our clients, and if you're following your own program or working out elsewhere, and you have specific goals, we encourage you to get the answers to these questions so you're not wasting your time!
It’s never about creating the hardest workout, because quite frankly, a 6 year old can do that!
