Yesterday may have exposed some of your weaknesses. Have trouble stringing double unders together consistently? Have doubles at all? Legs burn out on box jumps? Can’t hit the wall ball target when you’re breathing heavy? Or maybe the problem is mental . . . Your body can still move but your head’s not in it. You stare at the clock as the seconds tick away but you’re content with leaving the kettlebell on the ground. Or maybe your weakness has to do with experience. You might have made a poor judgement with your scaling options. You may have been too embarrassed to ask what Med Ball to use.
All of these things keep us from reaching our potential, whether you want to be in better shape for you kids or you’re an aspiring competitive athlete. The point is: Use these hard learned lessons to recognize your weaknesses and attack them. Work on Double Unders everyday. Hate box jumps? Do 20 when you get to class then do another 20 before you leave. And increase that number every week. When banging out reps, pick a number and don’t accept failure. Then, when you get to that number, force yourself to do 3 more. Don’t understand the WOD? Ask the Coach or your neighbor BEFORE the clock starts. I promise your fitness will come if you treat life this way.
