Spring Challenge – Now What?

By | All Posts

IMG_5696Congratulations on completing the Boom Six Week Challenge. Glazing over the forms, it’s pretty impressive to see how well everybody did on attendance. Go team! We would also like to thank coach Daniel for sharing his special expertise with us during the four special Saturday classes that he taught. We are very blessed to have such an incredible coach sharing his knowledge with us.

Finishing the challenge can feel a little anti-climactic, specially if you didn’t happen to get your first Muscle-Up or Snatch PR on the last day. Here are some pointers to help you to not feel deflated, and how to keep up the progress and momentum!

  • Incorporate working on your goals into your routine.

Just because the challenge is over doesn’t mean you should stop working on your goals. The best way to continue to progress is to add working on your goals into your routine. Make it a habit to spend five to ten minutes before your workout on progressions. (This means arriving a little early!) Doing this one simple thing will really help you to get better.

  • Work on one goal at a time.

Unless you are extremely driven it is best to work on one goal at a time. This way you can focus all the extra moments you have on that one goal and see faster results, which keeps you motivated to continue.

  • Skills are for rest days.

Turn your rest days into active rest days by still coming in to the gym, but instead of doing the workout, working on skills instead. You could practice double-unders, handstands, roll out with the Yoga Tune Up balls, stretch, practice your Olympic lifts with the PVC pipe, or muscle ups with “The Ring Thing.”

  • Continue to show up consistently.

It makes a HUGE difference if you are consistent with your workouts. It is incredible to see how much people progress by simply being consistent. Think about the long game. Where you want to be in a year or two years.

Don’t forget to acknowledge your triumphs! We look forward to continue to help you to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.
