Climb the rope

by carney on February 18, 2014

Hold on tight and pull. That’s really all there is to climb the rope. However, somewhere in that order of operation is your inability to get to the top. Maybe your grip is weak. Maybe the muscles of your back, shoulders, and arms are in sorry shape. Maybe you’re scared – scared to try, scared to fail. Well, whatever the reason for your short coming, there’s really only one thing to do. Climb the rope.

Workout of the Day

For max load:
High bar back squat, 5-5-5-5-5 reps

It’s not that I’m inherently lazy. Not for lack of drive and motivation. But sometimes I just get off track and stuck, like everyone else. Sometimes I get stuck for a week, sometimes 2 years . . .

Since opening 5:30 AM classes in 2012, my training schedule has been inconsistent, and as a result, my progress pitiful. Four weeks ago, I decided to just do what needed to be done, and get my WOD in at 4:30 AM.

With the schedule I have, between running the gym, coaching classes, doing bodywork, work with the AMTA, and homeschooling my kids, 4:30 AM was the only reliable time I could see in getting it in. But OMFG that is early . . . so I thought. However, within 3 days of the new time, I loved it, and have been hitting it Monday through Friday for four weeks straight.

As a result, loads are starting to move up, finish times down, and the mindset dialing in! It feels like I’m “home” again.

Since the blog speaks for the business, I’m going to start to recording my thoughts/experiences here, including my WOD scores, for anyone who might want to laugh (with me or at me), learn, or share in the process of failing forward.

WOD:
Loads in kilograms
80 x5
82.5 x5
83 x5
84 x5
85 x4
