The biathlon programming is knocking me on my butt with each session, yet I keep coming back hungry for more. Today is the last session of the first microcycle, which I am very grateful for. During Tuesday’s workout I had to break up three of the six sets which bothered me at the time, but looking back I realize the important thing is just putting in the work (total volume of the session was 15,576lbs!). With each GS workout I am reminded that this sport requires just as much mental endurance as it does physical.
We are smuggling chalk in tonight at the gym which will help our grip, now we just need to overthrow the dictators in charge of the stereo (TOO MUCH Katy Perry). These are the same dictators/personal trainers who have their clients doing KB swings on BOSU Balls (AAAAAHHHHHHH)!
I love our gym, it has a complete set of sport kettlebells, Oly platforms, beautiful locker rooms, and everything else we need/want YET as a chiropractor some of the things I see in the gym just makes me cringe as much as if I was hit in the groin with a bat. How long do you watch someone deadlift with a flexed lumbar spine or perform jarring behind the neck military presses without saying something. I don’t want to be the tool who is always in everyone’s business and giving advice that wasn’t asked for, but DANG folks, come on! Perhaps the best option is to simply walk up to them and with a nod give them my card. What are your thoughts?
