Want to have a better overhead squat? You've got to do MORE than the mobility we do in class. You have to dedicated 5-10 mins everyday to make yourself into a Supple Leopard.
It takes mental strength to see and acknowledge our weaknesses. It takes character to be willing to put in the work. It takes humility to admit you have some technique flaws and it takes strength to be willing to work on those flaws.
CrossFit is the SPORT of fitness. This means we are learning new skills and techniques all the time. It also means you can spend your entire CrossFit career honing and developing those skills and techniques. In fact, the better you move, the better your skills, the better your technique, the better fitness development you will have.
Today's workout, while one of my favorites, will strike fear in the hearts of many and perhaps even lead some of you to decide not to attend class. Well, that would just be downright counterproductive wouldn't it? How will you every get better if you don't practice?
