Motivation is a tricky thing with our workouts. It comes and goes in waves depending on any number of factors. Is it cold out? Did you get enough sleep? Are you mentally in the game today? How sore is your body now? I know when I’m looking for motivation and really need to dig for it, first I take a nap. Nap complete. Onto the next necessary ingredient for pump up; music. You all have your own preferences and favorite songs to listen to before, during, and maybe even after a workout. Sometimes it even determines your levels of motivation and how fast you actually move. The coaches would like to hear what song/bands/artists motivate you when you’re faced with the task to do a certain amount of work as fast as you can. Sometimes the best moments coming here are the 10 seconds before the workout starts and all you here is a couple of loud notes as you’re staring the WOD right in the face. Maybe it’s when you come out of your own head in the middle and hear your favorite part of a song that actually pushes you to move again, faster. No matter what it is, we want to know about it so maybe next time you hear 3..2..1…GO!, you also hear your jams.

Who Wants Wrist Wraps?! Several of you have asked the coaches about wrist wraps, or even borrowed a pair. I like them for near-max overhead lifts, and metcons with a lot of work overhead. If you’re interested in ordering a pair for yourself, or would like more information please contact Eric by Friday, February 10th.
