Train Weaknesses for Greater Strength Gains
Have you ever been told to train weaknesses? Maybe it's more likely that people ask, “What are your strengths?” We’ve most likely heard this in job interviews and when it comes to fitness, it’s your strengths that get all of the attention.
Well, that is all about to change! In the world of Gymnastic Strength Training (GST), the only way to more strength gains is to strengthen your weaknesses. Is it what you want to do? Most likely no, but you must trust the process. You’ll be thankful you did.
Train Weaknesses: A Chain is Only As Strong As It’s Weakest Link
Yes, it’s true! A weak link will cascade down and weaken the rest of the chain. Think of your body as a chain of muscles and joints. A weak link in your ankle? How do you think it will affect your hips and knees?
This is exactly the reason why it’s so important to train using your weaknesses as your guide.
By strengthening your smaller, less trained muscles, you will be giving yourself a major advantage to improving your performance and preventing injuries. This is the essence of Gymnastic Strength Training: optimize every muscle through their full and natural range of motion.
If this looks tough at first, don’t worry. The step by step progressions in our Handstand Courses will help you accomplish them with ease.
The only way to strengthen your weaknesses is to accept where your fitness level is currently at. This means embracing your mobility deficits and addressing them head-on.
In theory, it’s really that simple. In practice? Not so much.
Weaknesses are there for a reason. We don’t like training them. So we don’t. Sometimes we completely forget about them.
