Monday Testing Day 1 – 8FEB21
Beast River Fitness – WOD
Testing Day 1 Notes:
-Today we’re testing a productive and useful application of strength, 5RM deadlift, and a semi-technical conditioning workout, metcon, in a 6-8minute time domain.
“Annie” a benchmark CrossFit workout falls under semi-technical as someone who has double unders consistently will out perform someone who is more conditioning but struggles with double unders. Master your doubles!
“You can easily judge the character of a person by how they treat those who can do nothing for them.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Cue, craving, response, reward.
In “Atomic Habits”, by James Clear, this is the loop process that determines many of our actions.
A large part of the above is the final piece – the reward. We can be reward oriented beings. It’s not a bad thing by itself, but we do find ourselves in trouble when it is the only thing.
The quote above gives us something to think about. Sometime today, we’ll come across the individual who can offer us “the least in return”. As in, there won’t be a reward for whatever we do for them.
How we act inside that moment is the reality of our character.
1: Deadlift (5RM)
2: Annie (Time)
