Quick Tip for your balance: Where you position your neck, head, and eyes has a huge impact on your balance. Instead of gazing towards your feet, try looking slightly ahead with your neck in a straight line with your spine.

What I’m Reading: I Used to Be a Wellness Influencer. Now I’m an Alternative Medicine Skeptic (Self Magazine): “Was I relying on strong, valid evidence? Nah, not really. But at the time, I thought what I had was better than strong evidence: Faith in a lifestyle and a dogmatic belief that all things traditional and mainstream were unhealthy or harmful, and therefore, that all things unconventional and alternative were curative and would bring about “wellness.””

As always these are suggested weights. Tempo training should make light weights feel much heavier. Just note how difficult/easy it is for you so that next week you can make appropriate adjustments. Remember the purpose of this training is to see how perfectly you can execute each lift, NOT how much weight you can yank off the floor.
