Motivation

(Repost)

Creating good environments for our kids to succeed.  The saddest thing for me to see is a child with no confidence.  So worried about what others will think that they are afraid to try.  Are we creating an environment for our children to succeed?  Are we creating an environment for ourselves to succeed?  What can we do to help others and ourselves?  On Tuesday in our kids class we had two new participants (brothers).  One of them is an 11 year old who you could instantly tell was nervous and uncomfortable.  His Mother explained to me that he has become very self conscious of his weight and lack of strength.  I know his parents and they are very supportive and loving.  So the question for me is where is the negativity coming from?  I think our society is largely negative.  We are quick to tell people what we don’t like.  Quick to point out the differences of why something is worse then then the other.  We do this without even recognizing the beauty of either.  I believe that this works into our subconscious and we are then afraid to make a mistake or not appear like everyone else.  When I teach the kids class I make it a point to keep things positive.  Instead of telling a child that they are doing it wrong, I show them how to do it right.  I give praise to those that are doing well and those that are trying to improve.  I’m especially mindful of those who struggle and I look for any improvement to praise.  They are verbally rewarded by following directions and trying.  I try not to give any of the kids negative attention.  After an hour long class of hard work and positive reinforcement all the kids raised both hands to express that they had a great time.  The brothers who tried out the class will be back. The 11 year old left with his head high and a smile on his face. 

Strength
Day 1, 2, or 3.
Workout Strategy
 Another Team Workout.  This will allow you to pace the workout.  Go heavier today.  if you minimize transition time then even doing 5 repetitions at a time will allow for a fast time with a partner.  Start thinking about the movements.  How do you need to move to be successful.  What are the movement cues that you can give yourself that will allow you to maintain good technique?
