If you want to be at your best then you need to get your "CNS" fired up, too many times people come into the gym & find out that there performance is under par simply because there is a lack of something that they can't put their finger on.
The CNS takes up about 5% of your body weight but manages to use up around 20% of the oxygen our body produces!
That's what you call high maintenance!, any type of reactive training you do before weights will definitely improve your performance in the gym, also it's a great way of doing cardio intervals & can be challenging & fun.
How many times can you catch the ball in I min with your best hand?
My record is 58 catches in 1minute!
The video version show me switching hands if you try this you will realize how difficult a skill this is, the rewards are a great cardio workout & that you need to fully concentrate on the task at hand so you will forget any problems outside of the gym,..as they say "If you want a change, mix it up & have a go"!"Motivation comes from looking at the things you want and realising what it takes to get it"
