The Aerialist's Workbook EBOOK
If you've been wishing you had a straightforward way to organize your goals in aerial, look no further. This workbook contains 10 assignments to complete over a 90-day period.
This workbook is useful at any level of training. However, if you have already perfected your training regime, have immaculate training habits, and have established a system for setting and achieving goals, you probably don't need this book. If you are however looking to develop good training habits, create a system for making measurable progress, and are looking to level up your training, this book will make it 1000x easier than if you were to do it from scratch.
This workbook is not designed for children, and works best if you have a way to train aerial outside of class such as open climb or an at-home rig (for your safety always use equipment designed for aerial, no trees, porches, swing sets, etc).
Part I, Train Like a Professional, is important for laying the groundwork of productive practice. Training like a professional is not about executing high-level skills and completing high-intensity workouts 5-7 days a week. Training like a professional is about optimizing your training time and adopting healthy and effective training habits. Whether or not you are a professional aerialist or have intentions to become one, you can train like one. Ultimately, training like a professional is about respecting yourself and your aerial discipline. It wasn't until I made this shift that I started looking and feeling like a professional. This section helps you identify what is holding back your progress and what to do about it.
Part II, Set Goals, provides a roadmap that unfolds over 90 days. In this section you will get specific about what you want to achieve and how you will do so. This includes setting goals for skills, technique, strength, and flexibility, setting up a reward system, and tracking progress.
Part III, A Holistic View, will help you see the bigger picture. You will record four videos within 90 days. The videos provide an overview of changes in your movement quality and holistic progress resulting from your goals section. In other words, the goals represents the "what" you do and the video represents the "how" you do it.
Part IV, Onward, sums up your three months.
The workbook includes assignments, insights, and templates to help optimize your training.
