In case you didn’t notice, last week was a big tester week. Everything from Metcons and multiple-rep strength lifts, to a splash of specific work on varying personal goals.
Days like these are important. Not only do they determine your current ability, but make concrete evidence of your improvements. It’s hard to know how to get some where unless you know where you are at. It’s also pretty darn amazing to see how far you have come!
I wish I had logged my first year of CrossFit (I started shortly after that) so I knew. Having clear, attainable goals with verbs and timelines is extremely important to help make them happen.
Really listen to cues when you are in class. You might get one cue, maybe a few. Ideally you shouldn’t have more than that. Actually try what your coach says, even if it sounds crazy.
We are here to help you move better, but unless our feedback is applied, it won’t make much of a difference. For the record, MANY of are already doing this and making MAJOR gains!
Also, if you’ve been holding out putting your goals in writing, that’s ok. But if you’ve been secretly hoping to make something happen and want us to know about it, grab us and TELL us! We aren’t mind readers, and care about what you have to say when it comes to your health and progress. Hit us up before, or after class!
Diana looking solid. Love coaching this girl!!
