Skill Days and Rope Climbs
I hope you enjoyed the first week of our 6 day programming! There was some great attendance across the board and lots of energy in the classes.
One type of training session that you will see pop up is the Skill Day. Typically these will start with us all working on a specific skill (say handstand pushups) and then there will be an option for the rest of the class. That option will usually be to practice a skill that you would personally like to develop OR to do some other scheduled training.
The benefit of the individual skill work is that we all have movements that are holding us back. Those movements could likely benefit from a bit more regular exposure, and these skill days are the chance to do just that. Your coach will be on hand to help you choose drills and refine movement patterns, with more time being available to do so in less busy classes.
So if you have a skill you'd like to nail down, or you've got an accomplishment on the goals board to chase, plan on getting that extra work in on these Skill choice days! Coming in with a plan will also help, so you can research some drills in advance that you'd like to try out. Look ahead in the programming to see when these days are coming and that will get you in the right mindset to push yourself on the day!
Speaking of skills, we have a rope climb practice session coming up on Tuesday. There are many different ways to scale a rope climb, all the way from beginner to expert. Just a heads up that if you plan on doing full rope climbs, wearing some long socks can help prevent rope burn on your lower legs!
Check out the video below for some solid options for progressing rope climbs and come in ready to rock!
See ya soon!
