Strength in Conditioning for Thursday, September 17, 2015
We love high intensity workouts here at SICFIT Scottsdale! But with intensity comes inherent variation — as intensity means something different for each and every one of our members. The speed, weight, and even the exercise itself that is intense for one person, may be like a walk in the park for another.
At SICFIT Scottsdale, we honor and embrace these differences! In fact, we love them! In each class we provide many options and modifications to make sure every person finds the perfect intensity for them!
In today’s workout we challenge our members to figure out their own peak level of sustainable work intensity. During our two EMOM workouts (Every Minute On the Minute) we ask our members to choose the number of pull ups they feel they will be able to accomplish every other minute, for the entire workout. Their total reps across all rounds will determine their score. But there is a catch — if they do not meet their goal in a given round, that entire round does not count!
To us at SICFIT, true strength isn’t just about how much weight you can lift, how fast you can run, or even how many pull ups you can do. To us, true strength is about knowing your limits and being willing to push yourself to that capacity, without pushing past it!
