Well, we are 4 out of 5 workouts down for this open season! Everyone threw down on some Snatches, Burpess and bar muscle ups for 19.4! Way to go Natalie, Kevon and Jayden! Shout out to MaBell for killin’ those 65 lb snatches, way to step up the game! This Friday will be the last workout of the 2019 CrossFit Open and after the last heat, we will as usual have our post WOD potluck, so bring on the yummy grub! Look for the sign up sheet by the bulletin board.
For this weeks overview of March 18th through 23rd 2019, we start off this Monday off with an AMRAP called “Low Key”. In this workout there are Burpee Pullups, Dumbbell Snatches and AbMat Situps. For Tuesday we have a team workout called “Megalodon”. Expect to see Box Jumps, Dumbbell Front Squats and Rowing. On Wednesday look forward to building to a heavy triple of Bench Press then another AMRAP style WOD that has Double Unders, Pushups and Toes to Bar called “Double Pits to Chesty”. 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 final week of 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:
“Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.”
Although these two are often lumped into the same category, they are actually miles apart. The difference between knowledge and wisdom: application.
Gaining knowledge, in and of itself, is relatively easy.
But purely gaining knowledge doesn’t change who we are.
We can place a turbocharged engine in the trunk, but it’s not connected to the drivetrain, we won’t drive faster. We might even drive slower, clouding our efforts with “unusable weight”.
Wisdom on the other hand, takes effort. It takes trial, error, pain, blood, sweat, and tears. And it’s a lifelong practice.
Knowing is not half the battle.
It’s not even a quarter.
It’s the first 10%, if that.
What we are after, knowledge in action.
