Working Your Weaknesses: Mastering Your GOAT

Blog Single

All of us have physical skills we would like to improve, such as pistol squats, muscle-ups, doubles-unders and many more.

While it’s easy to proclaim our desire to improve and master our “GOAT,” without time, dedication and a solid plan, our weaknesses will remain. This is why it's essential to have a solid structure in place to help move us from zero to hero!

Below are a few tips to help you improve your physical skills or GOAT:

Get Clear!

Define your goal and detect your weaknesses. What is it that you need to improve on? What areas require fine tuning and what do you hope to achieve through added focus? Try to pick one or two to start.

Ask for Help

Never be afraid to ask for help from those who are already skilled in your GOAT, whether it be a coach, training buddy or another external source, decide what you need and ask for it! Make sure you know the different skills needed to achieve your goat so you can focus on those things when you practice. In addition, make sure you find out the progressions of that movement so you can continuously move forward. For example, if you’re working on a pull-up you may start with jumping pull-ups, then to pull-ups with a band, then to trying them on the bar.

Have a Plan

Map out a clear structure of what you’ll work on, when and where. It’s not necessarily about the amount of time you dedicate, but how you use the time you do have! Will you dedicate a few minutes a day to working on your kip or three days a week working on a pull-up? The choice is yours, just make one and stick to it!

Celebrate Your Success

Seeing progress is motivating and keeps us hungry for more. Celebrate your efforts and it will help you build more confidence in your abilities! Finally got your chin over the bar with a pull-up? That’s huge! Share it on social and be proud of what you’ve accomplished.

Lastly, have fun, never give up and practice, practice, practice!
