Quality Reps

You’re dead tired, surrounded by a growing puddle of your own sweat, and a cloud of chalk.  You’re putting it all on the line, giving everything you’ve got to get the most out of your workout, so why would you ever short yourself on range of motion?  You only get out of your training what you put into it, and when you cheat range of motion you’re only cheating yourself.  Going through a complete range of motion every time builds strength throughout the entire movement.  Maybe you want to be faster than every other name on the board, but the most important person you’re competing with is yourself.  If you don’t get below parallel on a squat, lock out an overhead press, or get your chin over the bar on a pull-up, you’re not really giving the most of yourself, and therefor not getting the most out of your efforts.  We’ve got a little chipper Thursday, so be sure to continue to put out the effort we’ve come to expect, and make every rep count.CFF_040710-2329

    That was my favorite workout since joining a little over a month ago. I was completely smoked by the end of it, but now as I’m sitting at my computer I’m thinking “Could I have done 1.5pd and 40lb. thrusters?” I love that feeling…just makes me excited for the next time we do it.

    Oh, and I’m officially band-less on the pull ups. Still need to work on that kip though – I’m losing tons of energy/strength.

  2. My WOD felt good, but I was most excited about kicking it off w/20 consecutive double unders. Def a PR for the rope and no clue where it came from. 12:45 Rx (except pullups purple and red). Next time I need to blow off some steam I’m gonna do some 30# db thrusters, grunting included.

    Jon, I’m with you on the thrusters, they literally kicked my ass to the point of puking (so close!)… never felt so exhausted! I can’t wait to visit fran again!
