Strength or Conditioning Series: SAS

Strength or Conditioning. Today YOU get to choose which you would like to really focus on. Both options still provide multiple shared benefits. However, by adding or subtracting weight we significantly increase benefits more in one area than another. Let’s play it smart and remember that we can always add or drop weight depending on how we are feeling and how we are moving! We never let ego or insecurity control our decisions during a workout. We use common sense and heart.
