Mental toughness....... There is so much of this that is needed in life.  It is needed in our jobs, our sports, our relationships, our studies and our workouts.  Basically it is the level of stability you are ab le to keep when you are under duress.  When things get hard, or hurt, or are uncomfortable, the clock starts to tick.  How long can you last?  Of course no one wants to hurt, but the longer you are able to stay relaxed in this state, the more you will be able to achieve.  You will not get rattled or make abrupt decisions because you want the discomfort to hurry and go away.  you will be able to concentrate at the task at hand.  Today you will be presented with six one minute sprints of lifting.  The idea is to bang out as many reps as you can.  Don't let yourself stop to rest during that minute.  You will have 2 minutes to rest after it.  Make yourself go!  Force yourself to go!  Push that mental toughness!!

We will have our Foundations Class this Saturday at the gym starting at 7am. It will go until 10am and we will go over the 9 basic moves of crossfit.  this class is required for all of our unlimited members and is suggested for anyone who wants to improve their movement, safety and efficiency.  Email if you will be there!

FEEL THE BURN!!!!!

*this will take some thinking to figure out what weights you will need to make this happen.  Try to figure what weights from the bottom up or at least have enough 10s and 15s to be able to take weights off quickly.  If there are a ton of people, make sure your partner is going to do the same weights you are then you can do 1 min athlete A goes then next min athlete B goes then weights are switched on the 3rd minute
