Nice Work to all who had a go at Nasty Girls today! That is a killer workout and pretty fun.
Staying healthy and uninjured is of prime concern for those of us who are thinking long term with our fitness. Sometimes its easy to get wrapped up in the intensity of racing each other and the clock. Sure intensity means some sacrifice. You will likely sacrifice comfort, a settled stomach, whatever- but we never want the sacrifices to involve our health. Its one thing to continue despite a torn callous, nausea, or ‘the burn.’ But its quite foolish to ignore the pain that precedes injury. It is my job to help you hone your technique. The best way to avoid injury is to practice technique/form as your first priority. Have Tim or I (only) give you the thumbs up or down and make the adjustments. Is there something you’d like to work on at a time other than class? Let me know, we’ll make it happen. Once you can consistently show proper technique on a movement then its time to get intense. The clock will always be there-will you? If you do the movements right you are doing the movements safely, and before long better movement means faster-legit times.
