Let’s face it mama’s, we make the impossible possible everyday just by raising our kids. Think of all the situations they put us when we’re thinking, “This is impossible but it’s happening” and you’re the one making it happen.
If you’re thinking for one second that you can’t do something, remind yourself that you’re a parent and you routinely make the impossible possible.
So get yourself in a gym or some other physical activity that you can spill over that same mantra of making the impossible possible. Take it to your profession, take it to your passion. Some impossibilities may take longer than others so be patient but stay the course.
I beat my grade school record the other morning for pull ups. This did not happen over night but over years. There were times I did not think about it, times I became more conscious of the effort and times that I learned how to improve my performance.
Accomplishments in the gym help me stay focused on the accomplishments out of the gym such as parenting, relationships, business and spiritual growth. It’s an objective reflection of the process of self improvement for me.
Enough theory, here’s my tips on getting stronger pull up performance.
The biggest improvement I saw in my strength was when I started to completely relax my muscles when hanging between each rep, getting the fullest range of movement with each rep. This not only improved my form but added reps the following weeks.
Then I added chains due to the amount of reps I was hitting with bodyweight 15 reps.
Next week I’m including 5 sets of 5 with added weight.
I’ll keep you posted, until then GO STRONG MAMA’s and remember you make the impossible possible.
