For this week’s overview of February 25th through March 2nd 2019, we start our Monday off with “This One” time burpees were fun 😉 Well, actually there’s an AMRAP with AbMat Situps, Dumbbell Hang Clean and Jerks and Dumbbell Goblet Squats. Then on Tuesday we will have a “Face Off” with Deadlifts, Barbell-Facing Burpees and Assault Bike. On Wednesday look to “Overhaul” your Snatch technique with a 3-Position Power Snatch. Then finish with Box Jump Overs, Pull-ups and Power Snatches. Thursday’s are for Goats. This is CrossFit slang for a movement that challenges us. Today is geared towards “practice,” dialing in our mechanics with a controlled heart rate. As an example, to improve the technique of double-unders, we want to practice at a low-intensity where we can really focus on the mechanics of the hands and the timing of the jump. For the next four weeks during the CrossFit Open our programming will have the overview through Thursday. Then each Thursday evening, CrossFit will release the workout for the Open and it will be add it to Friday’s programming.
From CompTrain Mindset:
“If people knew how hard I worked to achieve my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful after all.” – Michelangelo
From a man who is recognized as one of the greatest artists of all time.
There’s the intoxicating myth in our society, that there is such a thing as natural, born talent. An “anointed” factor that leads to such heights of achievement.
Yet here he is, Michelangelo himself, expressing his backbone to success.
It’s easy to dismiss achievements to factors we can’t control. To say it is by chance. It’s harder, to see that he just simply worked his ass off.
When we recognize that it was just a different level of true grit, true hard work through near-unbearable adversity… we too, can see our potential in whatever we choose to pursue.
Greatness is not by chance. It is by choice.
