Whoa, there is no “Strength” for today? Am I just suppose to jump into the conditioning? What if I am not warmed up enough? Wait, wait there is a strength….after the conditioning?! Gymnastics. Whoa.
Yes folks, one of the main foundational components of Crossfit is constantly varied. Being prepared for anything at anytime, including a simple switch up of conditioning and strength. Step outside your normal comfort zone and embrace the different strategies to becoming fit. It will probably hurt those negative chin up holds, you’ll be fatigued from the conditioning but it will help train you mentally for unknown. This is imperative for those who are competitive in our sport of fitness; being ready for max-ing out your snatch then delicately walk on your hands can happen and you must be ready! One thing I have learned from years of Crossfit is routine is the enemy. Finding a rhythm is dangerous because it is boring but more importantly because the apocalypse can come at any time, not just in the hour of 5-6pm.
Challenge for you today, go all out! Pour all your energy into the conditioning and not dog it one bit thinking about how much harder those chin ups will be post wod. You can do it!
