Strength in Conditioning for Monday, January 12, 2015
The key to becoming advanced in any discipline is simple. It is to master the basics.
We must not take the basics for granted, for within them lay all the secrets to success to their later, more complex counterparts.
SICFIT Scottsdale is putting this wisdom to practice today by focusing our skill portion of class on the air squat. Even if you’ve performed over a thousand air squats in your lifetime, focusing your time and energy on improving this basic skill will pay tremendous dividends in your training.
Everything from back squats, to snatches, to pistols, to wall balls, to simply being able to sit down on the floor easily, all depend on our level of comfort with our hips below parallel.
Be relentless with yourself today while we work our air squats. And then, be relentless with yourself tomorrow, the next day, the day after that, and every day following. By focusing on the basics with intensity, we transform ourselves from novice to advanced.
