People are always focused on moving forward, advancing, and not going backwards. It is imperative, especially in the world of fitness, that we take steps back periodically to see how far we've become, and to work on basics. This can include basic movements such as air squats, push-ups, and strict pull-ups as well as using only the bar for a workout. Don't be afraid to regress to progress.
