MOBILITY – chest/pec lax ball smash and floss
MINDFULNESS – consider the difference between being ready and feeling ready!
Today’s mobility work is a great way to open up the chest with a lax ball. Options utilizing a wall/corner or a stool are presented– both are awesome, but stool is spicier 🙂
Fight the habit of gross internal rotation and give your shoulders a bit of slack! Your pecs are probably brutally tight and this is a great way to open them up– think of your chest and the butt of your legs and you’ll start to realize how much work they do for ya!
Today’s mindfulness work is to consider the uncomfortable difference between being ready and feeling ready.
If you want to make a change in your life or do something you’ve never done before, you need to realize the gap between being ready and feeling ready.
You feel ready way after you are actually ready. Feeling ready is something that comes later and after experience. You are ready well before the confidence comes.
Sure, sometimes you jump the gun and start something before you are entirely prepared– but this is a much more forgivable mistake than to wait too long.
Waiting too long, or waiting for the stars to align and for perfect circumstances, is the coward’s way out of being uncomfortable. If you feel ready to do something great, you have probably waited too long.
A good plan right now is better than a perfect plan too late.
