I’m Mentally Drained…

squat-way-down

CrossFit is not only a physical workout, but it’s also a mental one as well.

On Monday we maxed Front Squat.

On Tuesday we maxed Power Clean.

On Wednesday we were supposed to max Back Squat.  However, I was not there mentally or physically.

Physically, when you max, you are using all out effort.  Two days in a row is taxing.  Along with a WOD afterwards, I’m done.

Mentally, no part of me wanted to max back squat today.  I got to almost 95% and stopped.  I just didn’t have it in me.

Maxing should be done one movement a week at the most.  However, we just finished a front squat cycle so many wanted to measure their gains.

For me, it was too much.  I’m sore.  My legs are gone.  My mind is checked out.

I’ll max back squat some other week.

This week I’d had enough.
