I talked a lot about this at my clinics this summer, and at various congresses – so I wanted to do a little recap of a motto that I think holds true in the gym “what you do every day is more important than what you do every once in a while.” And I think it’s actually more true than we can even realize.
So one of the ways that I MAKE SURE that the things I think need to get done, get done, is to do them in warm-ups. Because let’s face it, we all run up against the clock during rotations, we’ve all got the kid who wants to take one more turn, sometimes setting up or doing conditioning just takes a little too long. We’ve all been there. So my way of planning for that is just to make my warm-ups a little longer and make sure I’ve got things I think we need in there.
Granted, with every group this may be a little different, but here are some staples I like:

One of my favorite conditioning exercises (try a couple of weeks of 10 of these, leg lifts, and a handstand – or handstand drill) after every turn on bars and you'll see HUGE transformation. This drill is one of hundreds in The Complete Compulsory Training Guide– link in bio
