3.) It’s all WORK, and it’s ALL GOOD.
Another gem from Coach Sutton.
I used to obsess over the workouts that I wrote for my clients. I would get frustrated when I would write a plan and then have to make changes last minute, as was the case when smelly teenagers took over the bench.
My beautiful workout program was shot full of holes when I would have to make substitutions right and left because the gym was busy and my equipment was being used (this is a common theme at big-box gyms).
I wanted my client to deadlift. The platform has a line out the door..
I wanted my client to do chin-ups..the only thing open is the lat pulldown machine..
Now I’ve really taken the “it’s all work, and it’s all good” to heart.
A squat is a squat, whether it’s under the bar or with a dumbbell in a goblet position or with bodyweight. It’s all work, and it’s all good.
A deadlift is just a hinge pattern with the bar. Dumbbell RDL’s are a great substitute. Don’t have two matching dumbbells? Use one, and do a single-leg RDL.
It’s all work, and it’s all good.
