Weekly Roundup time! 1.
I enjoy seeing and hearing about people finding the strength to overcome the sneaky little devil that whispers in your ear...you're tired...lets just go home...it's ok to stop now.... My coach used to say, "Sometimes you have to look over at the little devil on your shoulder and say...'F*ck you little man!" Health is wealth. Movement is a gift. And of course, being able to do burpees is a privilege! _______________________________________ #sisu #storiesofsisu #healthiswealth #appreciation #burpees #crossfit #luckyones #movementisagift #getup #fuckyoulittleman
2. "Bro Reps = No Reps: Bro reps really come down to coaching and culture. Coaching and programming leads to culture. Programming is what you do; coaching is how you do it; the result is the culture. To paraphrase, how hard you work and how you do the work keeps athletes held accountable every day, which effects the quality of their movements. Hearing coaches say, "I'll pick my battles" or "that is just how they move," are tell-tale signs for bad coaching and inflated Open scores."
This is a quote from an article by CrossFit coach Doug Chapman at Hyperfit USA. The article is written more for athletes and coaches that are training for Regionals and the Games, but I think it applies to every day training as well.
We want to have a culture of good movement here. That's why we emphasize full range of motion and proper reps. It's not just about competition, but doing things the right way because that is how they should be done.
