How to be More Athletic
Composed by Lalo Torres
You might have heard your coach * adoringly * chew out you to “BE MORE ATHLETIC.” Okayyyyy … however how do you become more athletic and what does being athletic even suggest?.
It is obvious that athletic professional athletes have the ability to learn and get skills faster and better than the non-athletic professional athlete..
What is a non-athletic athlete?.
This is somebody who may be able to lift a million pounds and/or squat 5 million pounds. They have aggravatingly raw strength. They can be on one week of a squat cycle and they PR by week 2 (all right thats a little of an exaggeration however you get my point)..
Cool cool. This individual is strong and typically fit … how are they not athletic?.
Ask that individual to balance on one leg, climb a wall, or perhaps carry out a take. They cant? Its due to the fact that they have actually not put in the time to develop their SKILLS. Eventually their absence of athleticism will be their downfall. Injury, lack of progress or burnout will lead to the death of their fitness goals..
Socially Conditioned to Focus on the Sexy.
When we start getting strong its easy to be drawn in to that strength and how we set about obtaining that strength. And I would even reach to state we can partly blame social media and social predisposition towards strength. Hear me out..
What do you see on IG? PRs, lifts and “impressive” efforts. You hardly ever see professional athletes working on and establishing their “abilities.”.
What or who is an athletic professional athlete?
Athletic professional athletes invest equal or simply as much quantity of their time working on establishing their skills. Do you ever question why gymnasts, dancers and other “skill-focused” professional athletes are so good at CrossFit, weightlifting or any other sport they begin discovering? Due to the fact that they have practiced developing SKILL, its. Ask any gymnast and they will inform you horror stories of uncomfortable hours invested practicing ONE single ability. Possibly not even the full ability. Holding positions for extended amount of times, working on one portion of a skill for hours and hours. Its not always enjoyable, but when that professional athlete is ready to showcase their flips and tricks, they can count on the mechanics and skills they have actually embedded in their being. Anyone can get strong. But not everybody gets strong the sustainable way or the right way..
