Conserving Energy with Proper Gymnastics Technique
When it comes to every other aspect of our lives, we are all trying to conserve energy. We’ve switched out all our bulbs to LED, we recycle, we reuse our water bottles, we conserve water, we bike instead of drive, and we buy organic fruits, meats, and veggies to cut back our carbon footprint and do our part to save the planet. We know that conservation is great, so why are we still wasting so much energy on training wrong?
Conserve energy and improve endurance with proper gymnastics technique
If conservation and preservation are key to protecting our planet, then conservation and preservation are also key to protecting our bodies from injury and harm. Yes, again and again, we see people exercise wrong, and over-exerting themselves resulting in stress injuries, strains, pulls, tweaked backs, bad shoulders, knees, elbows, and wrists.
We need to take a page from our daily practices and start conserving our energy at the gym. It’s not going to save any trees, but it is going to save our body from unnecessary harm, and, most importantly, it is going to improve your overall performance.
Yes, conserving energy while you are working out, is going to improve your performance. We know you think that going balls to the wall is the only way to improve your tone, muscle mass, endurance, flexibility, etc., but if you’re just going as hard as you can at all times, chances are you are sacrificing form and technique. Huffing, puffing, sweating, grunting, and growling may be a sign that you are working harder, but it is not a sign that you are working smarter!
Gymnastics training is the foundation to any sport
Every athlete can improve their performance by going back to gymnastic basics and learning proper form and technique. Knowing how to use your muscles correctly to help you perform basic movements will also help you conserve energy. The right technique means that you are only using the muscles that need to be used, instead of overexerting your body by using 100% of your energy at all times.
We’ll help you gain technique and help you free up energy so that you also improve your endurance, as well as gain strength. Freeing up energy allows you to compete at a higher level, helping you to dominate your sport at every event.
