ALICE LIVEING ON...
This month, Alice reveals why there’s much to be gained from clowning around
...circus skills. No clowning
Ichallenge you to take a trip to the circus and not leave with a long list of moves you want to master. Recently, I went to watch an amazing travelling circus and felt so inspired by what I saw. As an ex-professional dancer, I love the idea of circus-style skills that require concentration and a completely different way of using your body. This moves the focus away from constantly adding load or increasing volume. As with most things, strength gains will, at some point, plateau. Working on skill-based movements alongside continued strength work can help to keep you motivated and interested in your training routine. I’m not suggesting you run off and join the circus, but have a go at building some of these moves into your workout. Don’t worry: no unicycles involved.
