Let’s be honest these workouts are brutal. There is only one pre-requisite to CrossFit. Do you know that when you come to workout it’s going to be hard?? Yes. Good. Good. For me I always think about doing just”one more rep”. No matter how bad I feel or how much it hurts, I can always do one more.
Here are a couple others ones that I thought about or have seen online. Pick one and drill it into your psyche.
1. “Welcome the pain”
Don’t be afraid when things get tough. Push yourself to accept what is coming instead and know that you’re going to grow from it. It’s called bringing sexy back.
2. “Look forward to feeling good”
Ask yourself how you want to feel later only. Forget about how you’d feel in between. You always feel amazing afterword! Some sooner than later!!
3. “Stop moving forward, take a step back instead”
Go back for a second, re-evaluate your goals, and remember your WHY. This effectively gives you the motivation to move forward.
4. “Failure is your best friend”
Embrace failure, for it will give you the best and most meaningful lessons you actually need to move forward. That being said, failure is not the end. Re-group and think about what you would do differently next workout.
5. ”Have fun”
Don’t take life so seriously. Laugh at your mistakes. Never sweat the small stuff. Just have fun, and be thankful for what you have, and that everything is going to be okay anyway. Its just exercise!
