We’ve all been there before or thought we were at least. When you’re in that “zone” where no one can tough you or cause you to miss. It’s the point at where you’re so focused on the task at hand that you can’t be disturbed or pushed off course by anyone or anything. Michael Jordan used to claim being in the zone during championship games where the hoop looked double it’s size and he couldn’t miss. Baseballers claim the ball is larger than life and can’t be missed. Tiger Woods says that the whole looks as big as a basketball hoop and all he needs to do is hit the ball and it goes in. I don’t know if I’ve ever felt this way but I know that good things in sport lead to more good things. Evidently, the New York Times has some good articles on this subject. I heard the first of it on Elliot in the morning coming back from the glorious 6am class the other day. Check it out
Things you can say while in the zone:
“Don’t bother me bro I’m totally crushing this blog post”
“Get out of my face man, I’m all up in world of Warcraft”
“I can’t right now, I’m completely demolishing my mid term”
“Dude, no. I’m about to embarrass this WOD right now, maybe later”
“Are you serious? don’t you see me currently owning this massage?!”
“Get away from me, now”
Fastest to three hundred (300) wall balls
Teams of three:
2 people are on the deadlift bar, 1 person is wall balling
The bar should be loaded up with the average of two of the athletes in the group plus 100. For example: Brian’s deadlift is 500, Mike’s is 450 so, add both of them together and divide by two, add 100# and ergo, the bar should be loaded with…575.
*Before partner 3 can start on wall balls the deadlifters must do 5 deadlifts and then hold the UP position. Then wall balls can start.
**It’s a race to 300 wall balls
***EMOM the whole team does 5 burpees each.
