When you show up early…

Happy Holidays from Rambo

Believe it or not, there are a lot of peeps who actually show up early for a class! When I am coaching, most people start the warmup early and with the extra time I’ll notice people standing off in the corner or chatting it up with someone else who is also early or just hanging out. If you are early (or hanging out after), this is a great time to work on your weaknesses or do some extra warm-up.

I was researching other CF’s and found a very cool blog about what to do with idle time when you show up early for a class.

“My favorite thing to do before every workout is a 1000m nice and easy row and then 50 GHD sit-ups/50 hip extensions. I break it up anyway I want. I am not in a hurry to get it done. It’s a great little accessory warm-up up to strengthen the hips, abs, and back. I rarely get sore from GHD workouts anymore. Give it a try! Or…. try rolling out a bit…or…practicing some gymnastics moves….or….going for a jog around the block with a friend…..or……working on your shoulder flexibility……etc, etc, etc. You get the idea. Of course, you can always just come in and chill out until your session starts. Nothing wrong with that either! It’s your gym. Use it as you see fit. Whatever you do…. Don’t download Angry Birds onto your cellphone. You’ll never get anything done if you do”

  1. Will Definately be doing this when I can if time allows before work! And the angry birds game…well that person is correct! If you download that app on your phone…nothing gets done…that game is so flipping addicting!

  2. If I’m ever early, I love to get my stretches in…cuz we all know that’s my biggest weakness!
