We might not be working towards adding 5# to our max clean and jerk but we are finding ways to stay fit and healthy during such a bizarre time.
Do not hold yourself accountable to the degree of difficulty and intensity that we found daily in the gym environment. Instead, find peace in movement. Be grateful that you can and are moving daily. Every day is a different challenge, but don’t create another one because the workouts are not “hard” enough. Keep the mental battle to a minimum and just keep swimming.
Work on being excellent in your movements. Full ROM and investment in the technique. Today we will be doing something a lot of people might despise, but to be fit, we need to challenge ourselves both physically and mentally. Today will be a good day to do both.
