There’s no room for walls in this community so today I want to give you 15 ways you can make like a juggernaut and blast through those walls. Take note and apply these to your workouts. Just keep in mind you need to progress smartly with these athletic movements and I’m here to help if you need guidance.
15 Athletic Movements
If you are an experienced athlete, or a seasoned fitness enthusiast then it’s no secret to you that movement is everything. Sure everybody loves to walk into the weight room and crush a new PR. Lifting more and more weight is a fun thing to accomplish, but even that needs to be changed from time to time.
I’ve always been a huge proponent of athletic movements involving modalities such as plyometrics, calisthenics, and ballistic power training drills. Why? Because at 42 years of age I know that these movements provide the perfect marriage between your strength and how you’re able to express that strength in the real world!
It’s real simple. You can either be strong and rigid, or you can be strong and athletic. Whether addressing a competing athlete, or not I prefer the latter because the benefits speak for themselves. The more athletic you are you’ll move better, you’ll reduce the incidence of injury, and you’ll be able to enjoy life more outside the weight room.

Athletic Movements: The Takeaway
Take the time to learn and apply these to your workouts. There is a proper progression to adhere to in order to safely and effectively incorporate these into your training.
If you’re a novice and need help I would strongly recommend that you seek out a Certified strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) to help you do this. I can am a CSCS and can certainly help you, but if you don’t use me then seek out an NSCA-CSCS professional in your local area.
