Hope everyone has a safe and fun Labor Day Weekend! Reminder, we will only have one class Monday, September 2, at 8:30 am. Monday’s workout is a long, light weight chipper. “Dive Bar,” has running, thrusters and burpees that will take anywhere from 15-25 min. Tuesday’s class will hit “Big Bird,” a single dumbbell AMRAP with snatches, calories on the assault bike, DB box step-ups and pullups. “Fish Out of Water,” has us rowing on Wednesday. This is a retest workout which was done on July 1st so we will have the chance to test our fitness. This WOD is a 2k row directly into 10 rounds of “The Chief.” Thursday comes in hot with “Slam Dunk,” an AMRAP of running, ball slams and rope climbs. We will finish the work week with our FREE FRIDAY workout of “Toon Squad,” which is a 3 person team workout which is based off of reps after 27 minutes of fast paced work on the assault bike, wallballs and burpees. Saturdays group WOD is “Dead & Company,” starting with a buy in of a mile run then 21-15-9 of deadlifts, box jump overs, and toes to bar, finishing with a cash out of another mile run.
FROM COMPTRAIN MINDSET:
“Failure is the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” – Henry Ford**
Failure has a negative connotation.
That it’s a mark against us – a scarlet letter.
That it’s something we want to avoid at all costs.
Individuals such as Henry Ford offer to look at failure in an entirely different way.
“What can this failure teach me?”
Because failure hurts, we can get defensive. When it happens, we don’t want to think about it, no less talk about it. It’s embarrassing, and we find ourselves wanting to forget it ever happened in the first place.
But if we can push our ego out of the way, and dissect the failure from every angle, with sincere humility every step of the way… the opportunity is incredible. In a self-protective response, our mind can push us away from this uncomfortable place. But it’s where we truly learn, to come back to try again this time far more equipped for victory.
How can we turn the “worst thing that could have happened”, into the “best thing that could have happened?”.
