We’re back with our weekly training video blog and today Chase gives you some quick tips on the difference between a Chin Up and a Pull Up, what muscles are worked and two progressions to safely and effectively increase your reps.
Last week I dove into the simple techniques you can use to improve your results or your life in general, without actually adding more “stuff” to your to-do list.
This starts with getting really clear on your goal. Don’t make it fluffy or you won’t follow through. You then have to ask yourself some deeper questions- why do I really want this?
You might need to ask that question of yourself about 3-5 times to actually get the real answer and make sure you’re not bullshitting yourself.
Now let’s talk about what happens after we set those goals. Why do we constantly and consistently FAIL to get results?
There are basically four stages that everyone goes through during this cycle of change.
The first phase is when you set those goals and you are crazy excited. THIS will be the time I’ll change. Basically this is that “Monday I’ll start again” phase. Everything seems exciting, new, motivating and you are ready to rock.
Phase II is when things get a little more interesting- this is called informed pessimism. This when you start to realize how much work is involved and a few doubts begin to creep in. The rainbow and unicorns in Phase I (uninformed optimism) are starting to become a distant memory.
Welcome back to our weekly video blog, here’s a quick one today about learning and perfecting the proper squat technique using body weight air squats and then onto KB Goblet Squats.
