  • Fear

    Megan2

    Eleanor Roosevelt said, " you must do the thing that you cannot do"

    This is so good. Living In choice and choosing to rise above your daily challenges is an every day struggle. Consider this: if you wake up, look fear in the eyes and do one thing a day that scares you, how much happier and fulfilled would you be?

    Personally this one hits home. In the world of functional fitness I feel like there is a challenge in a every workout that I don't want to do. Why? Ask myself why all the time! A lot of the time I don't push as hard as I need to because I am scared. Silly right? My biggest fear is myself?! Well when it comes down to it pushing that voice in my head aside and doing has changed the game. What I mean by that is this: when you don't think, and trust your training the results will pay off. If I think I'm going to suck at muscle ups today, well I probably will. But if I say to myself "hey you got this you can always do one more rep" my mindset changes. I am now living in choice. I am choosing to rise above and be better.

    What is the one thing you think you cannot do? Why can't you do it? What if you lived in possibility and nothing could hold you back?

    Go. Be great. Much love,

  • Do Not Fear Failure

    Benstevens

    What separates the best athletes in the world from the average athletes? Talent? Sure that plays a role but it's not the main factor. Genetics? Yes, this also plays a role but it is not the main factor either. What separates the average CrossFit athlete from the regional/games athlete is their work ethic and tenacity to never settle or give up.

    To reach the level needed to compete at regionals or the games you must endure many trails and tribulations along your fitness journey. You will have far more failures than successes. To the average athlete this would hinder them and/or discourage them. The high level athlete knows that you must fail in order to grow. To become a better athlete you must push yourself to the limit which sometimes will involve failure.

    Once I learned that I must fail to succeed my training completely changed. When something caused me to fail instead of discouraging me it fired me up. Failure is what pushes me, it makes me strive to become a better athlete. Just imagine how boring training would be if you never had failure? Achieving a PR would not carry the weight nor the feeling that it does if failure did not exist.

    To take a line from Chris Spealler's tattoo, "I am not ashamed to fail". Do not be ashamed to fail! Look at failure as a challenge and use it to push you. When you fail it means you are one step closer to success.

  • Island

    Justin Adams2

    A wise man once told me, "Motivation is like being on a desert island.  You will only have what you bring with you."

    Motivation is a choice. It does not just magically show up. You choose to bring it every time you go after something.  That something can be training, career, relationships, or anything else you want to go after.

    You make the decision that what you want is more important than sitting back and doing nothing.  You chose that doing work for a purpose is more important than comfort of the moment.  You decide that this is WORTH IT.

    You have to decide to carry that motivation with you wherever you go.  It has to be with you always if you truly want to succeed.

    Everyday you step into a new deserted island.  What do you chose to bring?

  • What's Next?

     

    "Every year CrossFit athletes from all over the world prepare for the biggest test of fitness, The Open. The five week long test of your fitness showcases your strengths and your weaknesses. Any athlete from your most elite to your everyday soccer mom is allowed to participate.

    The Open is so much more than just a test of your fitness. It is a time to celebrate victories, whether they are small or large. It is a time to learn about yourself as an athlete and also from others. It is a time to gather as a community to encourage, push and have fun together. The Open means something different to everyone. Whether you are happy with your performance or not I encourage you to take a few days if you haven’t already and reevaluate each workout. Why? To become a better athlete. Take a few days and reflect on the “WHY” you do CrossFit. Take some time and breakdown each workout. Look at your scorecard, your pictures and or video if you have one of each workout. What did you do wrong? What needs to improve? How did you feel? How did you prepare? What did you do that was awesome?

    You MUST find something that you did awesome at. Whether it's you kept good form or you Pr’d or you did something more efficient than before. This is very important for your training in the future. You cannot look at The Open in an all negative way for you will set yourself up for frustration and loss of desire in future training. Write these things down, and set some goals small and large. Work on something such as skills, technique, mobility, and or nutrition every single day. You don’t have to spend all of your free time obsessing over this stuff. Enjoy life but when you are in the gym be in the moment and focus on those goals.

  • Protein, Protein, Protein!

     

    Too many times, as a CrossFit coach and fitness entrepreneur, I see too many people talking about a lack of energy or just a plain misunderstanding of nutrition.  Each macronutrient has it's purpose, but protein is the most important of all and perhaps the most overlooked macro in our universe.  With the evolution of young children having type II diabetes, an increase in access to processed foods (if you want to call it that), and a generalized lack of health, it is time that we focus in on one thing, PROTEIN!

     

    Let's break this down with 3 major tips about why you should eat more protein:

     

    1. Consume as a healthy snack for steady energy throughout your day. Without a doubt, too many of us either just don't eat enough or just don't get enough protein in your daily life.  Protein is an essential building block for your muscles and you must have it!  You should have some sort of protein every 2-3 hours.

    2.  Use protein as your #1 recovery product after exercise.  You have a 15-20 minute window after exercise where you should replenish with protein.  As glycogen stores become depleted, carbohydrates are necessary for replenishment as well, but protein remains king of them all.

    3. Proteins are also used to make enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters and various tiny molecules that serve important functions. Without protein, life as we know it would not be possible. The best way to consume the purest of proteins is by eating Paleo.  This means that you stick to lean meats, veggies, some fruit, nuts, seeds and zero sugar!  MHP has developed a delicious protein that implements the Paleo lifestyle!
