A Different Kind of PR…

carina

Before even the basic movements we use in training are grasped, you get to taste the pleasure of your first PR.  The weight on that barbell just keeps going up and up in the first few months, you are constantly upgrading to a smaller pull up band, you're rowing and running faster, and managing more and more double unders before the rope lashes you across the back of your legs.......

Love seeing that PR Board full....

The constant variance of our training means that you will potentially get to experience this almost miraculous improvement for YEARS.    Here is a message I received just last night from an experienced athlete "Wow I can't believe how much faster I was on that TTB, pistol workout! But I've hardly done any pistols in weeks!!"

BUT at some point you may find these results dwindling....

Don't be discouraged however, there are other PR's to chase.  I'm a big fan of Nano PR's - making a big lift in my normal shoes, that would have normally required Olympic Lifters.  Some of our post surgical members celebrate PIPRs - Post Injury PRs, a sure sign that they are making great progress with their rehab.

Here are a few more;

  • unbroken reps in a set
  • going your fastest on the last interval
  • workouts where you stay on your feet afterwards...... :)
  • better receiving position in your squat or snatch
  • workouts completed per month
  • mobility sessions per month
  • hours of sleep per night
  • how many servings of veggies in a day

Don't be discouraged if the weight on the bar gets a little stubborn, there are a lot of other ways to celebrate your progress.
