What Goldilocks Can Teach Us About Getting Strong

What Goldilocks Can Teach Us About Getting Strong
June 27, 2019 Dan Raimondi

One of the main takeaways from Goldilocks is the idea of finding something that is “just right”, neither too hot nor too cold. I asked one of my clients this morning what she liked about our workouts thus far, and she expressed a similar sentiment.

“Yoga would feel at times either too easy or way too hard.” Ditto for body pump. Ditto for many other options out there that use large groups with minimal scaling.

Barbell training meets you where you are. We can scale the exercises and find something that you can do on day 1. It may not be much weight (or any weight at all), but it’ll be just the right dosage of stress to begin the process of getting stronger. Neither too easy, nor too difficult. Just right.
