Tuesday Testing Day 2 9FEB21
Beast River Fitness – WOD
Testing Day 2 Notes-
Today’s testing benchmark is another barbell movement – the Push Jerk. Simply this movement is a test of how much weight you can lift overhead. Unlike the Split or Squat Jerk the Push Jerk is a relatively unskilled movement.
To finish off the day’s benchmarks is a simple test on the rower. A 500m Sprint. See you in the gym!
“There will never be better you, than you.”
There is a lot to be said about authenticity.
The first definition inside Merriam-Webster reads, “worthy of acceptance or belief.”
If there’s one sure way to find failure in something, it’s through not being ourselves. It just doesn’t pan out in the long run. While we always remain a student, the harm lies when we blur the lines between emulating the traits of our mentors… with trying to actually be them.
Our mentors do not wish for us to follow in their footsteps.
Our mentors wish for us to go further. To blaze the path further than before.
We have incredible leaders to guide us. But it is now on us to push even further. And there’s no one suited better for that, than you.
