For this week’s overview of January 7th through 12th 2019, we have a couple of CrossFit classic workouts. One being “Fight Gone Bad” and the other one a hero workout for Monday called “DT”. But before we get into Monday’s conditioning piece, there is a strength portion of building to a Heavy Double Hang Power Clean. Tuesday’s workout has one thing in common with revolutions per minute; like the spinning of the flywheel for rowing, the spinning of the wheel on the bike and the spinning of the rope for Double Unders creating a “Fuller Circle” workout. On Wednesday our goal is to build to a heavy Pausing Front Squat + Front Squat complex for the day. Then flirt with “Satan’s Whiskers” a CompTrain class classic benchmark workout consisting of Chest to Bar Pullups, Moderately Heavy Front Squats and Burpees. Then on Thursday it’s time to pick up your “Layaway” and put it to use in an AMRAP style workout performing Ab Mat Situps, Shuttle Sprints and heavy Dumbbell Snatches. For Friday fear not, it’s one of the most classic CrossFit workouts designed to simulate the time domain of a mixed martial arts bout of five minutes of work followed by one minute of rest “Fight Gone Bad”. To finish this week out, Saturday’s team of 3 workout is merely just a “Speed Bump” in the road consisting of three 2 round pieces of Bar-Facing Burpees, Hang Squat Cleans, Toes to Bar and Thrusters with Assault Bike for calories sandwiched in between sets.
From CompTrain Mindset:
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” – Vivian Greene
We just needed to get going, and not overthink it. What is powerful to realize, is that this concept applies outside the gym walls just as much as it does in it.
It is very common for us to await the “right moment”.
The right time to start reading again.
The right time to change jobs.
The right time to have that uncomfortable conversation.
We’ve all been here. Waiting for perfect.
Yet, we can all agree… that perfect, will never come. It doesn’t exist.
Instead of seeing all of the reasons that could go wrong, the quote urges us to take a different perspective. To see all the reasons why it could go *right*. To learn how to dance in the rain. To see, that today, is the best possible timing we could ever ask for.
If we can do that, we may actually realize that the perfect moment did exist after all.
