Snapshot



If, in the middle of your workout, someone took a snapshot and judged the quality of your effort and movement, based on that representative piece of time, what would they say? What if we scored the workout based on the average height of your burbpee jump? Or the range of your push up? (I'm not talking about form deviations that occur at the limits of human performance.)

Remember Crossfit is not about going as fast as you can. It's about performing as much work as you can, as fast as you can.

Why does it matter if I don't really reach full extension on my box jumps you say? Or achieve true overhead in push press?

It's all about performance. That's the point. Hot dirty nasty performance. Performing more work through a greater range of motion is the gateway to the next level.

So next time you find yourself loafing a little, take a snapshot.

It's so San Francisco CrossFit that the workout soundtrack is New Order.
