I don’t want to do that
This past weekends It takes 2 followed an amazing weekend at NLI. We had many athletes set PR’s during the last three weeks, but we also had a lot of weaknesses brought into the light.
Just like any high skill set, it takes practice to become proficient at them. This includes practicing the movement before/after class and at home. Just because a movement isn’t programed during your WOD doesn’t mean that you can’t work on it right?
When I first started CrossFit, and a movement came up on the WOD that I wasn’t good at my first thought was “I don’t want to do that” Why?
- It was hard
- I wasn’t good at it
- It would take me too long
- I wouldn’t finish first
- I couldn’t be competitive
I learned that not every day is a PR day, that not coming in first doesn’t mean I didn’t give it 100%. I learned that if I only focus on my strengths, I will only get marginally better, but if I focus on my weaknesses everything gets better.
I learned that the more I practice and force myself to be uncomfortable the better I get. The weaknesses become strengths and I move on to a new movement.
I love competition because it gives me the opportunity to test my skills and shines a light on what I really need to work on. Guess What I’m doing everyday? Double Under’s (NLI)
So what do you need to work on?
