Want to know why kids get fat? The Cause of Morbid Childhood Obesity. Watch the first 3 minutes of this documentary to see an (maybe extreme) example. Both absurd and sad at the same time. It makes me think of this quote: “We don’t let our kids get addicted to alcohol. We don’t let them become addicted to smoking. Perhaps we should be equally cautious when it comes to soda and other highly processed high carb junk food.” Very true.
Skill For 15 minutes, work on something you’ve been struggling with
Conditioning 20 Min AMRAP 5 Power cleans (145 / 100 lbs) 10 Toes to bar 15 Wall-balls (20 / 14 lbs)
Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward. – Soren Kierkegaard
Read this on Orange Coast CrossFit’s site the other day:
Cherry picking in our Crossfit world is selecting whether or not you will come based on the workout that’s put out. Athletes “cherry picking” choose whether or not to workout based on their own capabilities, fears, or dislike of movements to name a few reasons. The result is always the same, stagnant progress in your evolution in fitness and as an athlete, as well as hindering the common goal: general physical preparedness! Cherry picking is exactly where you will find plateau’s in your journey!
Common Cherry Picking:
“That looks hard, I’m not going!” “I’ve never done that, I’ll skip today!” “Are you kidding me! I can’t do that!” “Weightlifting? I don’t want to get big!” “I don’t like running, I’m not going”
I challenge all of you, to not cherry pick workouts you deem unready for, uncomfortable with or know you just won’t enjoy. It is in these workouts where you truly gain the most to include mental strength! I challenge you to attack an area you do not enjoy or an area where you are weaker and attack it with positive energy, belief in yourself and a powerful will to overcome that battle, I promise the results are well worth it.
