Single Arm Overhead Stability with a lunge is such an amazing way to both challenge instability but also to point out imbalances. It is super simple but very informative for assessment.

Are you being present when your heart rate spikes? Do we as coaches?

You may hear us shouting, “Focus on Breathing” throughout your workouts…its not just because we want to make sure you do not pass out but rather has a deeper meaning to being present and mindful of what you are feeling. If you can control your breathing, you might be able to control your heart rate and thus either decrease or increase your stress levels.

In short, embrace the process, even the uncomfortable parts.
