Motivation
During the kids class today I observed something that has great to see.  I have several kids in the program that came to me with little confidence in their athletic ability.  Over the course of a couple months I have seen a dramatic change.  Where they once avoided new or difficult tasks now they are willing to try whatever new movement I present to them.  How many of us are afraid to try something new for the fear of failing and looking stupid?  This fear is a learned trait.  We need to unlearn it.  We need to be confident to try new things.  We can not fear failure.  It is only through failure that we get stronger.  It doesn’t matter how many times you fall only that you get up each and every time.  
Strength
Is one of your goals to “tone up.”  Then focus on the strength.  That is how you get tone by getting your muscles stronger.  You get stronger by lifting heavier weights.   
Workout Strategy
 The Workout is supposed to be quick.  I didn’t say easier because no workout should be easy.  Plus this is a bench mark workout if you can do Double Unders.  The work load will be on the shorter side because you just spent a lot of energy on the strength for the Day.  We are not rushing the warm up or strength today.  The get More Awesome movement today is weighted Good Mornings.  The same movement we do with the PVC pipe can be down with a barbell.  Start with a light weight today.
