Come Early, Stay Late

Come Early, Stay Late

CrossFit is defined as “constantly varied, functional movement, executed at high intensity”.

Most people fall in love with CF because of the infinite variation. I’ve personally been doing CF for almost 4 years and I’m still doing workouts that I”ve never done before. I am allowed to program as creatively as possible. Each workout is completely different from the day before. The only thing I guarantee to you, as an athlete, is that next Wednesday’s workout will be absolutely different from the one you perform today. That’s the double edge sword.

On one hand, this style of training doesn’t allow monotony to set in. We rise to something new everyday! Exciting. 🙂

On the other hand, it takes a really long time to master these movements since we might only practice them once every couple of weeks 🙁

So the question is how can we get better at them in a shorter amount of time?

Simple. Come early, stay late. 

If you haven’t performed handstands in a couple of weeks, don’t wait for me to program them in a workout. Get yourself next to the wall and practice the skill of inverting yourself. Come early, stay late.

Not good at pull ups? No problem. Grab a band and practice pulling yourself up above the bar. Come early, stay late.

Suck at running. Go outside and get those feet moving. Come early, stay late. 

“ The hardest part of any journey is taking that first step.” Everything else seems easier after that!
