CrossFit is one big mental game

CrossFit is one big mental game. There’s so many factors that contribute to our successes and/or failures. The big ones are obvious: Nutrition, mechanics, consistency, dedication… but some of the smaller ones can get overlooked because we don’t see how they relate to our athletic ability. One of those is your attitude. CrossFit is competitive. It’s hard. It’s taxing. But why did we all stick with it? Because despite all of that it was FUN! We loved the people working out next to us, we loved the coach yelling at us to push out one more rep and then collapsing on the floor feeling accomplished. But then, somewhere along the way, maybe you stopped having fun. Maybe you have a nagging injury, maybe your progress isn’t moving as fast as it was, maybe someone new is becoming better than you. And slowly but surely you start dreading coming to the gym. You look at the WOD and your immediate thoughts are “that’s going to suck”, “so-and-so is going to beat me in this so why should I even try”… and next thing you know you’re going through the motions and the only thing keeping you coming back is knowing that you should workout because it’s good for you. If you’re walking in to the door with those thoughts you’ve already set yourself up for failure. Your ATTITUDE is everything. If you walk in to work with a feeling of dread and the only thing keeping you going to work is the need to keep a roof over your head, you’re going to accomplish the bear minimum (and even that... read more

Stress, Diet, Sleep…Optimize these and say goodbye to pain  

Stress, Diet, Sleep…Optimize these and say goodbye to pain         We all started our fitness journey for very similar reasons. We all work our asses off daily to try and reach our goals but for whatever reason some of us fall short no matter how are we try. Well the answer could be the lowest hanging fruit possible. This pyramid is something all CrossFitters should know, memorize, and live by. If you do not have the foundation of the pyramid then the top parts mean nothing! It’s a popular saying that you can’t out train a bad diet and that is 110% accurate. You also can’t recover properly. Now I am not going to go into the Diet aspect of this because we have a world class nutritionist  on staff who will discuss this further in other blog posts (Shout out to Chloe). I will however talk about Stress and Sleep. I know we all live very busy lives and some of you have kids so getting a full 8 hours of sleep is nearly impossible. If you honestly look at your schedule and life, is there an opportunity to get more sleep? I am going to go ahead and say yes. Start a schedule. Stick to the schedule. Do not stay up late binge watching Game of Thrones or Orange Is The New Black. Why? Because you busted your ass in the gym today and your muscles need time to recover. That happens when you are sleeping! Get on a schedule and make it a priority to stick with it. Fall off a day or... read more

WHY YOU SHOULD DITCH THE WEIGHT BELT

WHY YOU SHOULD DITCH THE WEIGHT BELT And the Knee Sleeves, Lifters, and Wrist Wraps Before I get into this I first want to clear something up. If you have a pre existing injury that requires you to use accessory gear to safely lift then this post is not directed towards you. This is directed towards the athlete who has no history of injuries and is capable of hitting all positions. With that being said let me begin. Today’s programming calls for a 1 rep max. Any lift. Front Squat, Deadlift, Clean, Snatch, Overhead Squat. Awesome. Athletes love to lift heavy and often. It looks cool, you can brag about it, and you can post it on Instagram. The problem is everyone wants to go heavy but they don’t really want to spend the time to develop strength. Are you someone that always puts knee sleeves on, wrist wraps, lifters, and a belt on to perform certain movements in the gym? At what point do you put them on? Warm ups? 60%? 80%? 90%? PR Attempt? If they go on before 90% then you need to consider spending time without them all together. Can you perform all of the movements you want too without them? Maybe. Maybe not. Ditch them all. For now. This will mean having to take a step back from maybe setting a PR or lifting as heavy as you used to and that can get frustrating but your long term health will thank you. You will spend your time focusing on movement quality, staying engaged and slowly but surely your weights will go back up,... read more
