today i realized just how much i favor one side. well, i always knew that i did that but just thought-- it's just my good side, it's the way i'm comfortable, it's the way i "do it better," and it's more FUN doing the movements the way i know how to well. but today while working out and doing simple movements, i noticed physically that i am way weaker (strength, technique, flow) on my "bad" side. it's kind of detrimental by now!
i've been training parkour for over a year now and have become quite lopsided. if you really want to get better, don't move on until you can do all movements both ways. i must commit to practicing my other side way more often, especially if i want to teach someone the correct way to progress!
my inner motto (ie kaos voice) while training will be : "do the other side now." in my head i might add an exclamation point at the end of that, but kaos just teaches with such calm encouragement that i'd like to keep that state as opposed to anxiety.
