AbsoluteFIT with Lydia: Small Epiphanies

1 Comment

No matter how long you’ve been into AbsoluteFIT, there’s always something new to learn.


So this morning, in Strength and Endurance, I had a bit of a breakthrough regarding kettlebell swings: Jackie, who was subbing for Marie, explained that the core and back muscles are supposed to do their part by keeping you from hinging too far forward. I already knew that the power of the thrust is supposed to come from your hips, not your arms, and that you’re not supposed to recruit your back muscles on the upswing — but somehow what Jackie said changed my form just that tiny. little. bit., and I got more out of the move than I ever have before.

And you guys — this happens all the time. Each coach I’ve worked with in AbsoluteFIT has contributed a number of things, some tiny and some fairly profound; it’s part of what keeps the program so interesting and fresh, even after three to four workouts a week for almost two years.

I don’t get that kind of inspirado from classes or the treadmill, is all I’m saying. Heh.
