Geek Fit Network: Progress Not Perfection. Picture a workout like a video game with a new set of moves to learn.

Geek Fit Network: Progress Not Perfection

A new game just dropped and you've got a new set of combos to learn. Maybe you looked up a guide, or you’re button mashing to find what works. Mistakes will be made, and respawns will be had. But you keep at it and master those moves!

Now picture a new workout like a new video game. There’s a whole set of moves to learn, and your body might not be ready for them all. Just like learning which buttons to push on a controller, you’ll learn what your body is capable of. The important thing is to listen to what your body is telling you. Maybe you need to modify things a bit. Instead of a jumping jack, you do a step jack. Or maybe you need to take a longer break to catch your breath. It’s all about progress, not perfection. Keep your body moving, and keep trying.

Recently Geek Fit Network hosted a Wakanda Warrior Workout with Body by Akua. A high intensity routine inspired by the fighting styles from Black Panther. I’ve restarted my fitness journey and this workout sounded like a fun way to learn new moves. Did I land every punch and kick perfectly? Not a chance. But I never gave up. I did modifications when I knew my body wasn’t ready for a full combo. I did push ups on my knees, took a few extra moments to catch my breath between sets, and tapped my shoulders instead of punching while in plank position. By the end, I still felt energized and accomplished. And I know if I keep at it, I will be able to master the moves. It’s just going to take practice.
