  • Episode Intro

  • Notes

In this here episode of ye olde GMB podcast we discuss some important topics, including YOUR feedback and YOUR goals. (Who doesn’t like to hear handsome people talk about them for 45 minutes?)

Oh, and we also make some recommendations about some of our “good buddies.”

So get’yer ears on and listen up!

A few of the topics covered:

  • Some awesome feedback we got this past week, and how we’re going to use it
  • When you know you’re “ready” for Rings Two
  • Why we don’t talk about “dynamic stretching” in Focused Flexibility
  • Why you should focus on the process of training, rather than the end goal
  • Setting realistic goals to meet your particular needs

    Really enjoyed the podcast! Totally agree with your comments about concentrating on the process during the workout and setting realistic goals. All those little goals add up, and before you know it, you are able to do things that you never thought you could do, even if it doesn’t happen as fast as you would like. Learned that in Tae Kwon Do.
    As a newbie, I had a topic that maybe you could clarify a little: some hints on how to use the RPT & RPE scores. Already have noticed how the perception of effort changes with each workout.
    Love the program, keep up the great work.

    • That’s a really good point, Sebastian.

      RPT and RPE will definitely change. That’s what the P is for: “perceived.”

      So as you get stronger and get better, your standards improve. So you have to be stricter and continue working harder.

      At any given time, you can only do what you can do, so measuring yourself against an ideal is not very helpful – in fact, it can just be discouraging. So we ask you to rate yourself against what you can do to the best of your capability and understanding.

      It takes a little work to get used to, but the more you practice using subjective metrics, the more useful they will become to you.

      Hope that helps.
