Wow, it’s been a while since I posted a crazy Cotter workout. I think I had too much on my brain to really think about posting workouts. But alas, I now have one to share. I actually have many, but this one is pretty important. Let me tell you why.
You see, every week I ask my class to do two things—> sprint a few times and work on functional/balance exercises. The sprinting to get their heart rates up a bit, and then recover. a lot. The balance work because WE ARE ALL OFF BALANCE. And I mean in life as well. So much can throw our weeks off balance and so much can throw our bodies off balance; i.e. hormones, allergies, over training, lack of sleep, bad posture. Oh ya, I know those can effect me!
Bu twice a week we work on this balance in order to train the muscles to react when we are “off balance.” Twice a week we work on balance so that we can grow stronger during a physically off balance day, week, month, etc. It’s not all about the body, but at the same time, that’s where it al originates. Yes?
No matter where you are today, just start working towards balance. I don’t think we will ever be perfectly balanced, but I’d like to think we can focus on making daily progress (one side at a time).
And here’s the video for the main set. Just in case you want a demo!
And if you are feeling balanced already, try this one! And oldie but a goodie

How’s your balance this week?
Mine’s always a bit off, but I’m okay with that. Something to work on!
