Whats up Crossfitters!!!
In light of the past couple of weeks and Sectionals beginning, I felt it necessary to post. Today's topic is Knowing Your Body! What I mean by this is not only know when to back down and rest, but also know what your strengths, weaknesses, and when to get it all out!
Last week, the 7 Min Burpee AMRAP was TORTUROUS! However, a lot of people learned how to push when it was necessary and play to their strengths. A BIG SHOUT OUT TO Ben, Eric, Aaron, Matt, Jason, and Alex who all earned over 100 Reps in that WOD (There are more but I don't have all the numbers in front of me). They were Body-Weight NINJA's on that WOD and they were pretty inspirational to watch. Having said that, they knew a few things when it came to that WOD...
1. Being Body-Weight, they would be able to recovery a bit faster and possibly make multiple attempts at the WOD.
2. Being Body-Weight, they knew that 2-3 reps could make a huge difference. I.e, they PUSHED EVERY REP!
3. They fit the WOD into their programming, not the other way around.
Before I begin to rant, let this last week be an intro into getting to know yourself as an ATHLETE! Know limits, know how to push, how to scheme, how to rest/recover, and all the little details into your performance.
GOOD LUCK THIS WEEK ON ALL THE WOD'S EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT DOING SECTIONALS!!
