D$'s double unders are looking great! He has been practicing them and it shows.
Mental toughness is cultivated through practice. Practice, for most of us, is a series of steps, forward and back, up and down, that eventually lead to some form of competence. Practice might never lead to mastery, we might practice at something all of our lives only to end up, "pretty good."
Your CrossFit practice is no different. It is one component of a larger group of healthy lifestyle things at which you're practicing. All of these things you're practicing are choices, activities you choose to help you be happy and healthy.
I just read this great blog post from the folks at the Whole Life Challenge on practice. I thought you might like it, too.
Practice can be anything that allows us to focus on the exact moment without becoming attached to a big payoff. For those of us who spend time in the gym, our training provides an already existing platform for “practice.”
Today's workout is meant to be heavy and fast. The reps are low and should be completed unbroken. Scale the weights so that you can do the push jerks unbroken or in two sets. The weight should be a challenge, but not so heavy that you have to do the reps one at a time. This workout tests our power, speed, coordination, core strength and endurance. Good luck!
Happy Birthday Chris!
We hope your special day is full of love, laughter and a heavy barbell.
