I am trying to grow my YouTube channel. My goal is to get to 100 subscribers in the next couple of months. If you are so inclined, I would greatly appreciate it if you subscribed. You don’t have to receive notifications if you don’t want to. If you have a YouTube channel, I’d love to return the favor (and I’m interested, too!!).
Let’s be honest, if you want to achieve the highest levels of any sport, hobby, or task you set your eyes on, you have to do what works for you and what attacks your weaknesses.
With regards to CrossFit, if you just show up and do the programming at your CrossFit gym, you’ll never reach the highest levels. Sure, you’ll get stronger, and you’ll improve, but you will eventually reach a plateau that you may not be able to overcome.
For far too long, I was complacent, and although I did my own CrossFit programming, I really had no idea what to do to get better. Sadly, this is the majority of people unless you invest the time to figure it out yourself.
If you want to progress in anything in life, you’ll need customized training for you, especially for CrossFit.
I just thought I’d give you an update on my training for the CrossFit Games. Just watch the video below for the whole story, but suffice it to say, it’s all going extremely well. I’m super excited about what the future holds.
Most of us would agree that one of the best inventions ever has been the camera and video. Besides taking selfies of yourself in cool places, you can use your camera to record your CrossFit moves in order to learn from them, correct your moves, and ultimately get better.
I’ve been videotaping myself a lot lately as I journey to the CrossFit Games for my coaches to view in order to see my flaws so I can fix them. Sure, it takes a bit more work than normal, but the learning curve is unlimited.
CrossFit Girl Workout Megan is a CrossFit benchmark (those workouts you repeat as a gauge to measure your improvement) that is quick. I use this workout frequently as a warmup for my CrossFit workouts.
CrossFit Girl WOD Megan:
Kettlebell swings (35 lbs)
Definitely a nice little workout under 10 minutes to get your heartrate up and you nice and warm.
If you’ve been doing CrossFit long enough, there have probably been times where you want to quit. Maybe it’s been a particularly tough workout. Or, maybe you got injured. Or, maybe you decided the daily grind is just not worth it anymore.
For me, the only thing that makes me want to quit CrossFit is getting a massage.
My massages are deep tissue massages, and I have a lot of knots in my shoulders.
Lately, my left lat has been super tight.
My massages are painful — super painful. I clench my teeth and bare it because I know it helps. But during the entire massage session, I constantly wonder why I CrossFit.
One day, I’d like to know what a regular massage feels like; the type of massage that actually feels good.
What about you? What makes you wan to quit CrossFit?
