Kick it up a notch 

Your workouts don’t always have to be sets/reps/10 min long planks/hour runs and so on.

Sometimes deciding to think out of the ordinary is exactly what your body and mind need! 

I find this comes in handy on a week like this when I’m not feeling particularly motivated to push and pull the big weights around.  Instead, I took on a challenge that got my heart rate up and trashed my legs!……….1000 kicks!

Some were standard, some involved jumps or quick movements.  But the key was to set a goal and push myself as hard as possible.  30 minutes and a lot of sweat later the challenge was complete!  No weights lifted, and my legs felt as if I maxed out on squats.

Fingers crossed I can walk in the morning!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork. Check out more at our website
