We build physically and mentally strong women. Check out these lovely ladies doing pull-ups at last year's Murph.
We continue our study of The Invictus Mindset by looking at our commitment. The first Pillar of The Invictus Mindset is Goal Setting and the three legs of the first pillar are focus, motivation and commitment. We've explored focus and motivation, and this week we look at the last leg of the pillar - commitment.
In The Invictus Mindset, author CJ Martin asks, "...would you run through the rain if your program called for you to do so?" Would you reverse engineer inconveniences? Would prep your meals? Would you pack your gym bag the night before? Would you schedule your gym time and guard that time? Would you drink La Croix instead of beer? Would you order the burger without the bun?
Being committed means you will make some sacrifices to achieve your goals. Some goals require bigger sacrifices than others. Your level of commitment to your goal is your willingness to make different choices. It's your willingness to do something a different way.
Once you're clear on why you want to achieve something, and you understand your motivation, it becomes much easier to stay committed.
Let's put all of the last three week's of lessons together and actually make some goals. Here is the CrossFit Invictus Vision Statement and Goal Setting Sheet. Print one out for each of your goals. Share your goals in the comments or on our Facebook group. We want to support your efforts!
Today is our weekly Murph prep workout.
Murph pays tribute to LT. Michael P. Murphy, a US Navy SEAL, who made the ultimate sacrifice to save his SEAL team.
Lt. Murphy created this workout, originally named Body Armor, to prepare him for the mental of physical rigors of deployment to Afghanistan.
The MURPH is more than just a workout, it is a tradition that helps push us, humble us, and dedicate a bit of pain and sweat to honor a man who gave everything he had.
As with everything we do at our gym, we will scale and modify this workout to meet you at your current fitness level. If you can't run, you'll walk or ride your bike. If you can't do a pull-up you'll do a ring row if you can't push-up from the floor you'll go from your knees. NO WORRIES and NO EXCUSES.
You can also choose to officially participate the worldwide Murph challenge by signing up online. Your registration fee will contribute to a prestigious organization founded by the Murphy family and you'll get a kick-ass MURPH shirt.
We will be doing Murph on Memorial Day at 10:30AM. We'll have a potluck party afterwards. We'll provide protein and drinks, is you'll please provide salads and other nibbles to share.
