…which CrossFit WOD would I do?
Man. That’s a loaded query.
As a lot as I’d like to PR my Fran time, that may be so fuckin cliche. Actually, I in all probability wouldn’t choose something out of your typical CrossFit train record. I may simply spend all night time itemizing down the very best CrossFit WODs on the market, and there’s no means I’d have the ability to slender all the way down to 1 that I’d be completely proud of.
And no…I received’t partake in one thing like CrossFit endurance coaching. If tomorrow have been my final day on this earth, I wouldn’t need to finish issues with one of many many intense CrossFit exercises. Neglect about some excessive train program tomorrow. I may give two shits about “forging elite health.”
The extra I give it some thought, the extra I’d moderately hold issues easy. Return to fundamentals.
What sort of shit do I like to do?
Raise heavy. Motherfucker.
I’d more than likely do an entire WOD of cleans. For the primary a part of my exercise, I’d do some power shit. Constructing as much as a brand new 1 rep max can be my plan. 250# or 255# can be a candy remaining PR.
After doing that for a superb 20 minutes or so, I’d do a reasonably lengthy AMRAP, possibly like 20 minutes of one thing with squat cleans, double unders, and pull ups.
I don’t see any logic or goal to this WOD, however these are a number of of my favourite actions. Even when this have been my final exercise, I wouldn’t go all out.
Each single rep. I’d cherish it – I’d really feel each muscle in my physique working collectively to finish every squat clear; I’d really feel each rotation of my soar rope overhead; and I’d string collectively a number of the smoothest butterflies I may ever do.
Moderately than shoot for some loopy time for some loopy WOD with no normal, I’d merely respect this exercise for the artwork present in CrossFit. Regardless of all of the BEAST MODEEEE (roar) and skull-n-bonez mentalities in our CrossFit world, there’s far more to our sport.
Once you cease for a second and see the forest from the bushes, that unhealthy day at your field or that failed PR looks like nothing. Every time I get down due to shit like this, I at all times ask myself, “Why do I CrossFit?”
I hit up my native field 5 occasions per week as a result of:
1) I don’t need to be fats once more.
2) I like doing these CrossFit exercises. Hitting up the fitness center is not a chore.
three) This shit makes me completely satisfied as fuck.
And the way do I be certain I at all times keep these three causes above? Simply present up. Easy as that.
So within the grander scheme of issues, these little obstacles in my means don’t imply shit. And if tomorrow have been that remaining day of figuring out, I’d savor being in that second. Being within the now.
After all we all know all that “world is ending” stuff is bullshit…”
…however I’m going to reside tomorrow’s WOD and my complete day within the second. I’m positive, like myself, plenty of you lose sight of what actually issues with the hustle and bustle of on a regular basis life. We get pissed on the stupidest shit. We bitch over all these #firstworldproblems. We don’t understand how fuckin fortunate we’re.
Get pleasure from tomorrow. Kick some ass. YOLO 😛
Kip it actual, my pals.
