2023 CrossFit Goals

Every year, I set CrossFit goals I hope to achieve.

For 2023, these are it:

  • Strict ring muscle ups
  • Butterfly chest-to-bar pull ups
  • String together more toes to bar
  • String together more butterfly pull ups
  • Improve all Olympic moves
  • Improve my handstand walks
  • Make it to the quarterfinals of the CrossFit Open
  • Work on mobility
  • Heal

Admittedly, I have not been progressing or trying that hard to progress. Now, I’m hoping to. With my own CrossFit coach and the motivation to quit being mediocre, I hope to succeed and make progress. We shall see.

Getting Back to CrossFit Training After Being Sick

So, right after the Turkey Challenge CrossFit competition, I got sick. I missed Thanksgiving and was in bed most of the weekend. I also missed 4 days of CrossFit Training, which is right before another major CrossFit competition I have coming up, the 2022 Legends Championship at CrossFit Mayhem in Cookeville, Tennessee.

Now, I have to get back to CrossFit Training, and I’m hoping I’ve learned some things.

Tips for CrossFit Training After Being Sick

  • Don’t push getting back to the gym. The gym and the training will be there.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Sleep more.
  • Try to keep eating. You don’t want to lose too much weight.
  • Maintain a positive mental attitude.
  • Stay busy; it’ll take your mind off the fact you’ve missed CrossFit training

CrossFit Competition: MBS Turkey Challenge Day 2

Day 2 of the MBS Turkey Challenge dawned, and I was feeling good.

That is, until my rower broke during the middle of WOD 1 on Sunday.

Here’s how that went.

Frustrations With CrossFit Injuries

Hey all!

I have been completely frustrated with CrossFit injuries lately.

If you read my latest CrossFit competition post and watched my latest video on it, you would have seen how I strained my tendon. I had to do many sessions of muscle activation and massage, and it still is tight and weak.

Then, the following week, I had a rib head pop out, which is basically a rib out of place. Enter multiple chiropractic appointments and grunting through the pain during training.

My massages and chiropractor appointments hurt. None of them feel good. In essence, I’m paying for pain.

Which is what you do with CrossFit, too.

I’m really frustrated with my CrossFit injuries, and doubt and quitting creep in quite frequently.

I’d like to say I have the answers, but I don’t. I don’t even have any words of wisdom.

I’m giving my new CrossFit Games training till the CrossFit Open 2023. If I don’t make the quarterfinals, I may give up this dream altogether.

At some point, all of this becomes not worth it.

I’m not there yet, but I do feel it’s getting closer.

I knew this journey would not be easy; but I never thought it would be because of injuries. I thought it would be because of the work.

Frustrations With CrossFit Games Training

I have become extremely frustrated with my CrossFit training.

I feel like I’m not improving in what I need to improve.

While I understand that CrossFit is a long-term game, I’ve been doing it long enough that I should be better. And, I should be seeing gains out of my CrossFit Games Training — and I’m just not.

It’s really frustrating — frustrating to the point I may not do this for much longer if something doesn’t change.

I’m seeing this through to the CrossFit Open 2023. But after that, I’m just unsure…

What Makes You Want to Quit CrossFit?

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?

The Danger of Doing Your Own CrossFit Programming: Plateauing

The danger of doing your own CrossFit programming is that you have a high likelihood of plateauing.

Plateauing when it comes to working out is just maintaining and not really growing your skills as an athlete.

For the past four years, I would say I’ve plateaued. I have gotten moderately stronger, but not really.

Granted, when I was injured, that was my goal — to just maintain.

Now, I want to grow stronger and become better, which is why I’ve partnered with a coach and with a nutritionist.
