Strength in Conditioning for Thursday, July 24, 2014
Weightlifter, author, entrepreneur, and photographer, James Clear of JamesClear.com recently posted six helpful little tips about how to get the most form your exercise plan. Here at SICFIT Scottsdale, we couldn’t agree more with his perspectives and we believe that the very structure of our gym has all the elements of the quick tips built right in!
- “Commit for the long term.” At SICFIT Scottsdale, our strong community helps us to stay accountable not only to ourselves but to our fellow classmates and coaches. The more integrated we become into our community, the more likely we will be lifelong SICFITers!
- “You need a schedule for your training.“ With classes six days a week offered at various times throughout the day, we make it simple for you to schedule your fitness as a priority without disrupting your other responsibilities.
- “You should focus on the best exercises.” The “best exercises” are those that make you “move a lot,” and lists examples such as squats, deadlifts, clean and jerks, and sprints. Virtually every exercise mentioned is one we strive to master at SICFIT Scottsdale. Our commitment to teaching only functional fitness movements ensures that all of our exercises are the “best exercises.”
- “Start light and train volume before intensity.” This philosophy is the basis of our signature LIFE | FITNESS | SPORT method of building all markers of physical fitness in our students.
- “Slow progress each week is best.” SICFIT Scottsdale’s Strength in Conditioning Programming is designed to give us slow and steady gains that translate to lifelong fitness
- “You’ll benefit from recording your workouts.” From writing our times, scores, and weights on the board after every class to recording our workouts in our success journals, SICFIT Scottsdale is committed to using the data available to ensure we are constantly moving towards our goals.
