Have you ever left the gym wondering if you did your best? Maybe after class, you’ll do an Ab workout, do extra squats, or even run on a treadmill. Did you consider that the goal of the training was to take it a little easy? Knowing when you’ve had enough for the day can be confusing. Let’s dive into how to tell the difference.
If you are using total body movements
Our program is designed to begin training your core FIRST, which includes Ab muscles, then the rest of your body parts, like your legs, back, and arms. The workout of the day always ensures you get enough Abs every day, so extra “Ab” work isn’t needed. Movements like “thrusters” and burpees work your upper and lower body muscles and your heart and lungs.
If you’ve hit the goal of the workout by the end
One of the best ways to understand how to get the best out of the hour is to pay attention to the Coach at the start of class. Here the coach explains from 1 to 10 how hard the exercises should feel and what to expect. Communicating with your Coach for modifications and tweaks will always lead to a better result. If you want to do the workout properly, please take advantage of this time to ask any questions. At the end of the class, if you physically feel like what the Coach described at the beginning, you’ve hit the goal!
If you are left wanting more, you may be stronger than you think or need to make it more challenging. Most of the time, learning the difference takes patience, trial and error, or just sitting down with your Coach to get educated on understanding your workouts.
