The podcast below has a bunch of really good information in it. A bunch of nuggets and pearls. I’d either watch it or listen to it as you drive because it’s worth it.
When you see the title, most probably think this is more for competitive athletes. While that might partly be true, this is also for normal population as well. I’ve actually talked about this a number of times when people tend to struggle in their training. Whether it’s a burn out or not seeing results or still struggling with certain weaknesses or what have you.
It talks about it more in depth, but so many people are obsessed about going so fast all the time that they never actually work on things they need to work on. Lets say you struggle at pullups, a pullup workout comes on board, you say you wanna work on stringing reps together, so your goal for the workout is doing 5 unbroken reps each time. 3, 2, 1, go the workout begins, you do sets of 5 unbroken for the first, maybe second round, then you see people are beating you and you throw that out the window and go back to doing singles to go faster. Right there, you decided you wanted to “compete” instead of “train” and work on a weakness. We see the same thing with lifting as well. People say they are going to work on snatching better. We do some strength work, they stay light with the barbell working on technique. Until they see someone lift more than them that usually doesn’t beat them. So what do they do? Add weight to the bar, let form go out the window and lift heavier than that person to beat them on the whiteboard, instead of working on form like they originally planned.
So how do you fix this? Simple. Have a plan ahead of time. Have a plan for that workout and stick to that plan. Once or twice a week, throw it out the window and go as fast as you can in a workout. Not only will this start to help you on things you struggle with, but you also won’t have the feeling of getting burnt out from going so hard day after day.
