Lessons Refresher

I've been enjoying doing this program with my trainees. When training a program, I'll preview the upcoming lessons a week ahead of time to refresh my memory as to what is coming that week for the teams, to assist with any potential questions. But it's just an overall review and not a full re-read of each lesson, as I already know what's in them from when I completed the program previously, and trained it before too.

But with being on the team this time too, I've been re-reading all the lessons in full from a trainee’s viewpoint. It's been a good refresher of some smaller details in the lessons, and a reminder to re-practice aspects of the lessons to give some focus back to things that sometimes slip into the background of your regular training. The belly breathing one is a very important lesson of this program, and an excellent reminder. It’s not an easy lesson to implement immediately teammates, so be patient. Keep working on it little by little and it will feel more natural.

Almost 3 weeks complete teammates! Good work. Enjoy your Sunday 5K run. I'll probably squeeze mine in on Saturday evening since it's Mother's Day in the US Sunday, so time for a "run for dad" won't be the smartest choice (I'm not the smartest guy...but I'm not the dumbest either).

These trainees are in such great hands. Way to keep that razor sharp, Matt!

    Great blog and reminder. I swapped my free cardio for a run tonight since tomorrow (Sunday) is Mother’s Day. Took it slow and focused on form recalling the lessons on techniques. I had forgotten about the breathing!

      Super reminder - thank you! Put me in the "dumb" bucket - heading out for my 5km on Sunday! hahaha

          Breathing is fundamental. Great lesson this week on it in Chisel. Maybe get your wife out for a run with you? Or are you afraid of getting dusted?

              Solid Matt - pumped to have you leading the way for us! A buddy recently steered me towards some Wim Hof breathing stuff (which I have yet to try) - but at some point down the line would be curious to get your take on the aggressive breathing and oxygenation stuff he champions (your pic above prompted the thought)....

                Very smart plan to get the run in Saturday night! Thank you for the breathing lesson reminder. It is a little awkward to try to do while running but I have noticed that the more I try the better it feels.
