Motivation Monday: “Modify” Doesn’t Mean “Not Challenging.”
On a hike over the weekend, I took a bit of a tumble and banged up my knees and my right hip (I’m totally fine). As a result, there were certain exercises I couldn’t do in today’s workout. Did I let that stop me? Absolutely not!
I modified things as I was able to do them, and then to challenge myself more, I either slowed down the tempo of the movement or picked up a heavier weight, etc.
I like to think of it as even though I’m injured or otherwise unable to do a move, doesn’t mean I cannot workout – it means I get to workout differently.
And mostly, that means listening to and honoring my body by modifying the movements…
