Things I've Learned from CrossFit
All CF workouts should leave you feeling like you just died a little bit. If you don’t feel this way at the end of the WOD, you’re not working hard enough, lifting heavy enough or running fast enough.
Then again, don't get crazy dumb and get WOD drunk. Don't cheat your reps and remember, form before speed.
There is a special place in Hell for Rep Shavers. WE ARE ALWAYS WATCHING YOU.
When climbing a rope, wear tall socks. Shin guards are legit, too.
No cherry picking WODs! Don't hate strength workouts, don't hate running workouts, and don't hate chippers. If it's a WOD that shows up and you're like "F!ck, I'm gonna suck" or "I'm so bad at those!" Then that's the WOD, more than ANY OTHER WOD, that YOU need to be doing.
This is training, not just exercise. If you're here to socialize, please join the other ladies with their newest issue of People magazine on the elliptical machines.
Crossfit bodies are hot. Dem quads, dem traps.
In this sport, you're only as good as your goat.
It's not ALL about The Games.
Everything equates to the quality of your squat.
When in doubt, mobilize.
When in serious doubt, take more fish oil.
This is going to sound cliché, but when Crossfitting; the only person you should be competing with is you. Sure, a bit of healthy competition is fine, but don’t compare yourself to others. Because if you do, you’re guaranteed to feel crummy. Trust.
Showering with ripped hands hurts like a mofo.
Jump ON TO the box, not INTO the box.
Wanting to hurl in the middle of a WOD is a perfectly normal feeling.
A Crossfitter’s other passion in life? Food.
Crossfit gives you abs without ever having to do a single crunch and great arms without a single bicep curl.
Don't dump the barbell above your waist. Please. Practice good barbell manners. Save the 10's.
Eating more fat and protein makes you leaner. True story.
Regular callous maintenance is a must.
It's okay to go on and on about CrossFit with your CrossFit friends, but hey - you're not a drone, either. Don't let Crossfit Dogma dictate your life.
Lift heavy. Sprint often. Repeat.
