To start off this week’s overview off, we want to say well done to everyone on 19.3. Along with everyone’s full effort, we want to give a shout out to Ben Curry for an impressive performance with a dumbbell that was almost half his weight! LOL! Way to go Ben, great job on those step ups and handstand pushups 😎
Three workouts down and two more to go. After the last workout of the 2019 open as we usually do, we will have a potluck party immediately after the final heat. Bring your favorite dish and beverage so we can celebrate all the hard work! Look for the sign up sheet by the bulletin board.
For this weeks overview of March 11th through 16th 2019, we start off this Monday off with benchmark girl’s named workout “Cindy”. In this AMRAP look forward to Pullups, Pushups and Air Squats. On Tuesday, the workout “Bedtime” consists of Lateral Barbell Burpees, Deadlifts, Hang Power Cleans and Push Jerks. For Wednesday look forward to building to a heavy 5 rep Back Squat then perform “Jacquelyn” a workout consisting of Rowing, Wallballs and Toes To Bar for time. Then 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 at a low-intensity. For the next two 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:
“For most of us, the problem is not a lack of goals. But rather too many of them.” – Roy F. Baumeister
In the words of Confucius, “Person who chases two rabbits catches neither”.
There are few things more powerful for our goals, than our full focus.
And there are few things more destructive to our goals, than a lack of focus.
Creating goals can be intoxicating. We all love doing it. We like to plan, visualize, and dream. All too often, to a fault.
Whereas the next step seems obvious (tangible action), we often find our “rabbits” running in different directions. And we sprint with our mightiest effort trying to catch both (or better said all 10). But we don’t catch one.
It’s not that our goals directly work against each other. It’s that they can result in us, working against ourselves.
