Train Like A WLF 003: Hit That Pause Button


Use the freaking pause button.

Because when you’re working out at home, nobody can see what you’re doing. So you don’t have to worry about looking like a fool in front of a class, which is something I think we’re all concerned about doing on some level. There’s a lot of self-consciousness, even when we’re by ourselves, and that’s ok.

You hit that pause button, you do your 10 squats, you take your sweet time.

Because when he asks you to do 10 squats again, or maybe something else, you want to make sure that you can execute that move flawwwwwlessly.

Just. Breathe. Breeeeeathe. Do not let yourself get caught up in the momentum of the video.

Because that’s going to put you at a disadvantage for focusing on yourself. Engaging your own level of fatigue, finding those tension gaps, and everything I talked about last time. This is just about how to apply it in a very relevant circumstance.
