One of my favorite thing as a coach is to watch the clients putting everything they’ve got into a workout. This mornings 6AM workout was a great example, the workout for today is a CrossFit benchmark workout called Cindy. 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats, that’s one round and try to get as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes.
Regardless of how many rounds the 6AM crew got at the end of 20 minutes, they did the best they could, they put in 100% effort to get as many rounds as they could. One of the guys got 17 rounds which is awesome, but on other days he might only have 12 or 13 rounds, but I know that regardless of his numbers that he’s giving everything he’s got to give.
I believe that when you put 100% effort into a workout, even if you’re not at your normal full potential, that at the end you will feel satisfied about your performance during the workout, and reaching your fitness goals will happen before you know it.
