This really epitomizes Training days in our programming like today. Developing the habit of being excellent in your movement. Scaling back your intensity, speed and weight, whenever appropriate, putting form and technique over everything else, and training within your capacity to do this. If you’re able to keep your intensity hight while maintaining good form, by all means, do it! And by the way, don’t worry about dialing down the intensity some, the training gains will still come, but with greater efficiency and a reduced chance of injury… and then, don’t you worry – you’ll be back to fight another day!
