14-3-09

As the weather is still being so fine, I can understand why so many people are making the most of those getaway weekends, even with the hint of crispness in the air. We spent the weekend moving house again and for the final time, so I was able to workout 3 days in a row putting into practice alot of those lifting techniques, I’m glad that paid off.
Retested some of our troopers today, all I can say is what a huge gain!

11-3-09 – Anticipation

The anticipation of a workout is something different with Rapidfitness, I don’t know any other gym where people get nervous or talk about what the workout might be the way they do with Rapidfitnes. Those moments right before a workout can bring out a lot of different feelings. I know sometimes I feel anxious, excited and then even ask the question WHY? It’s the sensation of completing a workout and stepping up to the challenge that gets me through each one. Post your thoughts of what goes through your head before a workout.

9/3/09 – REST

Don’t neglect your rest, rest is a huge part of beeing well both during & between workouts. The three main requirements for muscular development is Stimulation, Nutrition & REST.
If you find yourself on the verge of anything, sickness, injury, passing out – it’s time to step back for a moment & catch your breathe. Don’t worry enjoy the moment as you are bound to make better gains from it.

4-3-09 Variety is the Spice of Life

With the training we do Rapidfitness does’nt specialise in anything. Meaning our workouts vary in length. We are not specifically for the endurance trainer or the sprinter, we may have an endurance workout one session & do a short weighted metabolic workout the next. You need to consider in life, the activities we do vary in length all the time. If we want to train to be prepared for life, then our training should vary as well. If you always do cardio for an hour, are you ready for something short & intense? If you only do short workouts, are you ready to endure a long activity? Change it up! Not only does it make you more prepared for sports & life, but it keeps things interesting.
