The 2015 CrossFit Games have some to a close in Carson, California! Some big upsets and some big heavy events also. There is definite obvious understanding amongst the community that everyone is getting stronger. Exponentially stronger. The amount of work able to be done by these athletes and by you has gone through the roof. It is indicative that hard work gets huge results.
These huge jumps can be seen here in FTCF when we compared the scores of 15.2 and 14.2 (C2B and Overhead squats). Some of us increased 400%…Talking about Adam Anderson who went from 33 reps in 14.2 to 127 Reps in 15.2. This is not by accident. Adam has been working his ass off. Waking up early, coming to later classes and sometimes putting in 2-a-Days.
A lot of you have very specific goals. Adams was to do as well as humanly possible on the Open which consisted of very broad goals that he trained for.
Put something on your 50 meter target and start inching yourself to it. If you remember Cheyenne, 3 years ago Cheyenne could not get one pullup but she wanted it. Her and some others trained hard. Until she got her first pullup, now she does 9 strict, has complete both bar and ring muscleups and is working on other areas.
This is a journey and must be viewed as one. Your ability is in direct proportion with your work toward it both in and out of the box.
The barbell doesn’t forgive and it doesn’t forget. It knows if you haven’t been around one for a while and will treat you accordingly! So lets pay some respect to that iron and lift it!
