Push Jerk Focus Workout Today.

We have a two part workout today focusing on the Push Jerk. First we will have 13 minutes to build to a moderate weight in a complex. The complex involves a pausing Push Jerk (pausing in the dip for 2 seconds and in the catch for 2 seconds) and then one Push Jerk immediately following. The goal with the pausing Push Jerk is to focus on getting good positions in the dip and in the catch, thus, the pauses. In the dip we want to maintain a vertical torso and in the catch we want to be balanced with that weight overhead. On the second Push Jerk, maintain those good positions without having the pauses. 
The second part of todays workout will be a conditioning piece with gymnastics, weightlifting, and calories on the bike. The time goal for this workout is 9-18 minutes. In order to achieve that, change what you need to to make the workout work for you. Have fun today and lets work on some Push Jerks!

 CompTrain Daily Mindset.

Read this and then read it again. What can we do to make a change in the world? Especially now, how can we go out of our way to help someone?

 

“You make a living with what you get. You make a life with what you give.” -Winston Churchill

Think back to a time in your life when you came in clutch for someone. One where your actions made a significant impact on someone’s life. Maybe it was a time where you showed up for a friend in a time of need. But you didn’t just show up… you went above and beyond. Not because of some expected return or ulterior motive, but because you believed it was the right thing to do. You genuinely cared.

Think back to that day, and how that made you feel when you saw your impact. Think back to how it felt to know you made a difference. It felt good, didn’t it. Really, damn, good.

Science has shown us that one of the most powerful emotions we can feel, via serotonin, is released in mass at these moments. But what is even more interesting, is that it’s literally contagious. Think back to the last time you saw *someone else* doing something generous. Maybe it was as simple as holding the door open at the store for an elderly customer. Think back to that… how did you feel, witnessing that? Did it make you feel, more generous?

If generosity is contagious, it just needs to be started. Let it be us. Be the change we want to see in this world.

Are you good at delaying instant gratification? Or are you able to focus on the big picture and see that something small right now isn’t as important than holding off and focusing on the thing you are working towards? Read this and see what one you are in this experiment. 

 

“The Marshmallow Experiment”

The experiment conducted decades ago began by bringing in children into a room, one by one, sitting them down in a chair with a single marshmallow in front of them.

Here, the researcher offered a deal. He said he was going to leave the room, and if the child didn’t eat the marshmallow while he was away, then a second marshmallow would be rewarded. However, if the child chose to eat the marshmallow while he was away, they wouldn’t get a second. What he didn’t say was how long he’d be gone. The choice was simple – one treat now, or two treats later.

Some of the children ate it right away. Some squirmed around for a bit, and gave in after a couple of minutes. And some of the children managed to wait until the researcher came back.

The research team followed the participants for 40 years afterwards. The children who ate the marshmallow immediately… struggled in life. They didn’t have careers they were proud of, and they didn’t live lives they were happy with. The children who held out went on to live as highly successful individuals.

The ability to delay gratification is a critical component in life. Whether we want to go to the CrossFit Games, be the best spouse we can be, or propel our career forward, we must have the willpower to stay the course with the longer term in mind. Even when we’re tired, hungry, beat up, and starving for a bite of that marshmallow… we’re tough enough to hang on.

AMRAP Tuesday!

Hitting this interval style AMRAP workout today. You will be working for 4 minutes and resting for the same amount of time, 4 minutes. We are combining bodyweight movements with a simple machine movement. This workout somewhat resembles the CompTrain Benchmark workout “Lead Foot”. Instead of rowing we will be working towards calories on the bike. The reps decrease each round so your score should increased. Keep track of each individual AMRAP score and try to improve upon the last. Get after this today!

CompTrain Daily Mindset!

Very strong words especially now, in the times we find ourselves in. Appreciate what you have while you have it.

“Trade your expectation for appreciation, and the world changes around you” – Tony Robbins

Routines and habits become part of the norm. Morning coffee, listening to the radio, the drive to the field taking the kids to practice. We appreciate healthy habits, and let’s continue to reinforce them. There is, however, much to be said about taking a pause to our routine, to appreciate the fortune in our lives. The absolute abundance we are so lucky to have.

In a world where comforts are the “norm”, we want to consciously remind ourselves how good our lives are. The thought of losing those precious parts of our day is a sobering one. But despite it being a morbid thought, we will. There will be a final cup of morning coffee for us. There will be the last chance for us to listen to the radio. And if we are lucky enough to have kids, there will be a last time we *get* to wait in traffic as we drive them to soccer practice.

As Tony Robbins quotes, if we can remove expectations from the norm, and replace them with a sense of gratitude, our entire world changes.
