Friday, October 26

Next Wednesday is Wednesday FriendsDay! Bring a friend to any class throughout the day to try CrossFit for the first time!

Oh, and it’s Halloween, so costumes are definitely encouraged!

And guess what? Benchmark Fridays are back! That’s right, we’re starting a new round of benchmark workouts so you can gather more data and test where you are right now in your fitness journey!

Of course, this means you better be tracking your workouts in an app, notebook, scroll, etc… Make sure you record what you do with as much detail as possible so you can look back and measure your progress. Or, you can tell if you are not progressing like you think you should be. Maybe there are other factors at play like not enough sleep or poor nutrition.

When you write down a workout, don’t just include the workout and your time. Write down the weight you used, the scaling option used for pull ups and other movements, how you felt that day, how you slept the night before, how you ate that morning…

All of this info can help you determine if you are on the right track. If one of these factors is off, you can slow your progress or move in the wrong direction (ahem, never getting eight hours of sleep).

Also remember that it’s impossible to be at 100% every day. So if you don’t have a great day and don’t PR your workout, THAT IS OK! The point of tracking is to understand why, not to make you feel bad about yourself. Give it your best on that day and be happy with your effort.

If you aren’t tracking your workouts already, today is a great day to start!
