What are your plans for this Spring?
It is the first day of Spring tomorrow and the world is about to come alive.
Imagine all the things you want to do this summer.
Go ahead and pause. Look away from your screen for a moment. I'll wait.
For those fun, exciting adventures to occur, will you be physically ready?
Gosh, it would feel sad to not be able to do what you want to.
Spring is you preseason! It is time to set up your strategy.
Now is the time.
The time to get your preseason training.
Not to get that summer bod.
You are on the wrong email list if you are all about the summer bod.
Instead, you want to move with ease.
Move with strength, endurance and dare I say, pain free, this summer.
Now is the time to make a plan and start building in the movement you need for all your anticipated summer adventures.
Case in point.
One of my clients works at a golf course over the sunny Canadian months. She knows the walking, twisting and bending it requires to pick up golf balls from the green.
We devised a plan to get her walking daily for a minimum of 20 minutes. We also planned to have her practice a standing yoga and stretching routine to help mimic some of the movement patterns she needs to do in her job.
She is in her preseason of training.
She wants to avoid hurting after each shift.
She wants to have the mobility to bend with ease.
She may even get a game of golf in herself and she wants to walk all 18 holes.
Insight to Action:
What do you need to do now to get ready for your physical pursuits this summer?
Is it mobility?
Is it building new brain-body pathways to change undesirable movement patterns?
Is it stability?
Is it for the endurance to go for a full day of activities outdoors?
Is it strength?
It is possible to get started now and reap the rewards this summer!
I applied the same preseason framework recently in this article for Farm Forum. Farmers' preseason starts earlier than the urban folks and the same principles apply. Start now and reap the benefits for your future self.
Got some good ideas?
