We must compete to improve. Whether we compete against ourselves, the others in our class, or with the best in the world.
Tomorrow, I'll be competing against the best CrossFitters in SoCal and some of the best CrossFitters in the world. It's going to be fun, exciting, and most of all, and great chance for me to grow as a person and as an athlete.
Competition provides wonderful context to your workouts, gives you something powerful and external as motivation, something to keep you going when the workout gets brutal. Embrace the competition in yourself and you'll see immediate and significant growth.
Try it out! Post any stories about competition to the comments :)
For time, complete the following:
100 pull ups
100 push ups
100 sit ups
