As coaches, we often hear the question “do you want me to do it fast, or do you want me to do it as prescribed?” regarding each day’s workout. The answer is both, and we want you have to have as near perfect form as you can muster too. We want you to move as quickly as possible, while completing the workout as near to the prescription as you can. This goes for both heavy weighted movements, as well as high skill bodyweight movements, and tomorrow we have some of both. The best, most efficient way to go heavy, and move fast, is proper technique. These conditioning workouts, are meant to be a high intensity, all out race to do as much work as quickly as possible, not slow slogs through too much weight or a movement that is too technical. When evaluating how to approach this workout, as well as future workouts, scale for speed and technique. Focus on modifying the workout in way that is best for you now, and always ask a coach if you need advice. The RX’s will be there sooner than you think.
