The power of words:)

Monday, March 11, 2013

This AM our trainer was showing us pull ups in the band. No biggie, we have been doing this for months. Today it was the way she was explaining it that made things click. "If you can't do them competitive style, then pull yourself up hold and release." Wait a minute...I have been doing them negative for a few weeks trying to build up some more strength. Time to try it competitive style and see what happens.
Banged out 40 with the band, unbroken. Then I did 6 negative. I was quite pleased. If she had not said, "competitive style" I am 100% sure I would have done them the way I always had. Love what a little play on words will do:)
Looking forward to a quick day and then a walk with the pups:)
Hope everyone has a great one! Do one thing competitive style!!!
82.17 miles for the year!

    Awesome Carol, I hope you do post some type of video - I'm having a hard time "seeing" what you are talking about.

    Hey, Carol. Can you recommend a video so I can actually see what you are talking about? My need for multisensory input! You often serve as my muse! No pressure, right? Grins.....

the word competitive also brings out the "gotta do it" in me!

    Good for you! I love when something just "clicks." We may have done it or heard it many times before, but we really "get it" this time. It just proves to never give up because we never know when the message will hit home. emoticon
