Tuesday is a great test of strength and willpower. We are maxing out our deadlifts and crushing a sprint workout that requires no breaks. We are doing burpee box jumps. The great thing about both movements is that you can always do another. If you get down you will always get up, and with the right focus you will always land on the box.
There is usually a giant “suck” factor that comes along with doing workouts like this. The fear of losing your breath, the pain, or even the fear of throwing up, creep in as we get the butterflies before the workout. Embrace the feeling. The butterflies/adrenaline are there to make you go faster and those pain feelings should be sought after. Sometimes it has to hurt. The pain is an indicator that you are doing the workout the right way. Put your head down and go.
