Attacking the Weakness

Sometimes, in the course of human events, it’s necessary to slow the hell down and look for imbalances of movement, impurities of strength, or asymmetries of form. All too often we try to use our known strengths to rush past & compensate for undesired weaknesses. Instead, we should look at what we’re doing with an excruciatingly analytical eye, accept responsibility for our weaknesses, and train them into strengths.

Here is a video of just such an example. The situp portion of the Turkish Get Up gives me troubles at higher weights, so my approach is to isolate this sub-component of the process and work on it until the weakness has been conditioned into a strength. Doing so takes practice, and practice makes habits, so make good habits through regular & reliable practice.
