“People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.” A shower has an expiry date.
One Olympic lifting session a month wont make you step on the podium at the Rio Olympics, agreed? many people read a self-improvement book once in a while, and expect permanent results.
The drive needs a daily boost as Zig Ziglar used to say.
So here's the thing, if you want to get to your health and fitness goals and make your effort really impactful and lasting you need a good plan of action, you go and ask most gym users why they want to train with the Olympic (type) lifts and this will probably be your top answer.
"The lifts replicate sporting movement patterns such as jumps and sprints in that they require explosive extension of the ankle, knee and hip (triple extension) together with emphasizing the ability to produce force at rapid velocities".
These type of lifts uses the whole body and the skills can be transferred to most sports and activities with great benefits.
In terms of flexibility; Olympic type lifts are an awesome way of really improving your range of motion & you have so much to learn to try & improve or perfect your technique it's an ongoing fun process which can be measured in so many ways.
Good nutrition is key, so supplementing your diet with Zinc & Magnesium like in the above picture (taken separately in my opinion are a must to add to your daily regime).
I've said this before there are no "Wile E. Coyote" Acme ® quick fixes", but what you will see in no time all is your determination to learn & how much enjoyment you will find on that long road ahead.
