Always time to learn.
@johnoregan12 with some great work today, here he is working on transitional plyometric.
This is an important factor for a vast range of athletes as the ability to absorb and re-disperse energy and force is vital due to multidirectional movement as well as increased possible impact as in John’s case (rugby). The finisher on this exercise is a 5 yard sprint to transition the loading and dispersal of energy into a linear explosive movement.
Can’t have both...
We have all been there. •
I won’t insult anyone by rah-rah-ing them and saying that I am always positive. On the contrary, I get pretty melancholy myself at times, especially in the “waiting” stages.
But I always have to slap myself upside the head every now and then, knowing that whining or feeling sorry for myself, won’t get me anywhere. The quickest way to get out of a rut, is to accept the cycle. •

When you accept the cycle and surrender, you release the negative feedback loop of whining and all of its synonyms. And then... you can go whining and dining to celebrate the conclusion of rough cycle, even if it is with cheap wine. #friday
Real talk: I totally PROCRASTINATED starting this account. Why? FEAR, of course.
•I was afraid no one would be interested.
•I was not confident I could do it.
•I believed my posts needed to be “perfect”.
Has anyone ever put off something they really value because of fear??
It turns out 20% of adults and 50% of students procrastinate, and this tendency is associated with stress, worry, and guilt.
👉🏻 So, what can we do about it?
🌟QUESTION THE FEARS that block you (e.g., “No one will like my work”) - determine whether they are entirely true… probably not.
🌟Focus on aspects that MOTIVATE you (e.g., Is there something about the task that you enjoy? Is the outcome positive?)
🌟SCHEDULE the task, including date, time, location - you are much more likely to do it if it’s in your planner.
🌟Be aware of possible EXCUSES & DISTRACTORS - if you can anticipate them, they’re less likely to get in your way.
🚨TIP ALERT: Don’t procrastinate trying the tricks listed above 😂
