We hope everyone had as much fun as we did at the DDCF Christmas Party! Also, it was great to see all the thought put into gift giving for the Secret Santa. This was by far the best, making it tough to top next year but, I’m sure we can do it. Thanks to Adrianna and Don Felix Restaurant for the delicious food, Benjamin Curry for the excellent slide show, Jose Solis for the DJ skills and extra fun music and the donation of the beverages 🙂
For this week’s overview of December 17th through the 22nd we start the week before Christmas off with a “Belly Flop” of a workout. Look forward to Box Jump Overs, Power Cleans, Chest to Bar Pull-ups, Front Squats, Lateral Barbell Burpees and Push Jerks to add to your bag of gifts. Then on Tuesday we have a “Dopamine” boosting session consisting of Calorie Assault Bike, Calorie Row and Shuttle Sprints. This is similar to the workout “Rugrats” we did a couple weeks back. Wednesday starts off with a strength session where we build to heavy set of 5 of Overhead Squats. Then hopefully you won’t have “Dead Arm”(s) from Strict Handstand Push-ups, Overhead Squats and Deadlifts. Thursday might put you in the “Spin Cycle” with Rope Climbs, Calorie Assault Bike and Double Unders if you aren’t focused. For Friday we have a new benchmark workout named “Vader” with movements consisting of Calorie Row, Wallballs, Alternating Dumbbell Snatches and Lateral Burpees over Rower. Finally on Saturday’s triplet workout, athletes will accumulate distances and reps of Toes to Bar, Running and Power Cleans.
From CompTrain Mindset
“Excitement comes from the achievement. Fulfillment comes from the journey.”
Winning the award is exciting. Fulfillment is looking back at the hard work put in.
There’s irony when think we think about defining moments. When we forecast into the future, we build up in our minds that accomplishing the achievement is the ultimate. Exciting – yes – but more often that not, when we look back, the real defining moments were the experiences that led up to those big achievements.
The trials, the tribulations, the lessons learned… the early mornings and late nights.
The blood, the sweat, the tears.
The dopamine hit comes when we win, hit the goal, or get the promotion.
But the fulfillment – the true, ever lasting feeling of joy, often comes from the quality of our struggle over every obstacle along the way. The relationships we build with others through the process.
