When you’ve won the Rugby World Cup like Will Greenwood did back in 2003 you know what it means and takes to strive for better each day. Will has a mindset, still to this day as he’s approaching 50 years old, where he describes his purpose as striving for better NOT perfection. He talks about why he doesn’t believe in perfect and how in his current training he’s been pushing himself during lockdowns and sometimes a little too far.
Always trashing my body, I know I need more balance
In this podcast episode he talks with great openness and honesty about how he’s feeling the need to start listening to his body more and invest in his physical pension. It’s something we’ve been helping him with as part of his personalised programme with the new School of calisthenics Coaching app.
We discuss many of the challenges we all face when managing our training loads. If you are someone that really enjoys a hard, high intensity training session then Will’s personal story will really resonate with you. The increase in mood and how it helps (as he describes) “our mental health” after the sense of achievement from ‘smashing a session” is important but so too is ‘finding balance’ in how we recover, improve our mobility and look after our bodies for the future.
Will provides a great insight and also fantastic advise for those of us that also find investing in our physical pension challenging at times and we hope you find this podcast episode encouraging and helpful for your own training.
Thanks for listening
