Crossfit Syosset/ Tuesday, May 22nd

So this post is about what you might call cherry picking workouts.
Crossfit is about becoming an all around athlete, not one dimensional.   At Crossfit we try to focus on all different modalities of training.
If we we’re too focus to much on one thing many other things would suffer, for instance if you only did power lifting movements and ignored your olympic lifts for whatever reason maybe there a weakness for you,  the latter would suffer.
If you only worked hard on movements that you excel at your weaknesses will suffer.
This is why we try to keep our movements varied and not stay stagnant.
With that said, there seems to be a shall we say “light” turn out when we do certain workouts.
Like when the workout was a 5k Run it was pretty much close the gym for the day, instead of getting people to come in and try and get a new PR for their 5k time they would just not consider it a workout and take the day off.  This was actually a technique I used to use to get people to take a rest day.

Kinda like the Rowing Intervals we did this past week.  Now those who did it and went hard at it now know that it is a killer workout.  But then there were those who said “that’s not a workout” and decided to either do something different or nothing at all.
Now don’t try and pull the “Chris you said we should take rest days, that was my rest day” with me.
Every workout is hard if you make it hard.
So don’t let your ego get the best of you and not do workouts that are important.
Rowing intervals aren’t about Rowing, the rowing is the tool to improve on your interval intensity.

Don’t be a cherry Picker, you might as well be a nose picker.
