"You can't program for yourself"
It's the middle of a workout. You're by yourself. It's the point in the workout where things are getting real. The "suck" moment has hit. What is going through your head? If we're being honest it's one or more of the following.
I've done this. I've been there. I've given up on workouts...often when I created/programmed it. I'm also dedicated, really good at programming, focused on fitness, and putting myself in the best position to be at my healthiest. So what's my deal?
Here's a very important principle of training/exercise that oftentimes gets overlooked.
Workouts must be measurable and visible by others. And in this is the true beauty of crossFit. Here's why.
What should you do? Follow someone else's, who you trust, programming and post what you did so others can see.
Here is today's lasting thought.
Trying to rely upon motivation to lead you is like relying upon caffeine to give you energy. It's momentary and does not last through the night.
