Last week, I got several comments from different people before workouts regarding the apparent difficulty or ease of the workouts of the day. A look back at last week's programming and you'll see a lot of basic "work" movements, nothing overly complex or skilled, just "get this shit done as fast as you can" type movements. For some reason, if it isn't muscle-ups, hang-power snatches, or handstand push-ups, people think the workout is going to be relatively easy!
The beauty of CrossFit lies in the fact that you can control the difficulty of the workout to a large extent by your level of intensity. Instead of trying to judge the apparent difficulty or ease of any given workout, try instead to visualize how you will complete the workout. Think about what specific aspect of your fitness you'll work on that day. The last thing you want is to be mentally taken out of the game because you told yourself today was going to be an easy day... "The only easy day was yesterday!"
Reminder: CrossFit 818 will be closed on December 24th and 25th, so get your workouts in!
