Bodyweight Exercise Motivation – Pistol Box Squat
Performing exercises that you are not particularly strong in can, and usually does, result in a stronger, more resilient you. By only training exercises that you are “strong” in, you create a stronger imbalance between exercises and movement you are strong in versus exercises and movement you are weak in, and as that imbalance grows you risk pain and injury, which should be avoided at all costs.
This is also why doing only exercises you “like” as opposed to also doing exercises you “need” is also a habit to break, especially when exercises you “like” may be exercises you shouldn’t be doing, also creating an injury “potential”.
Fundamental exercises, especially weight bearing exercises is always a great place to go back to when you reach plateaus in strength and conditioning. You’re only as strong as your weakest link. For this reason, smart experienced Coaches never emit exercises that clients are weakest in. These are exercises that hold the most value in “real life”.
Here I am showing the world how weak I am 😊
Have fun in the Gym
