Nutrition Challenge has begun. Make sure you are keeping up on your points each day!
Here’s a write up of the Nutrition Challenge Rules if you need to see it HERE
If you would like to help out with the open and judge people, please take the judges course right here
19.2 is upon us! Make sure you’ve signed up for a heat time, and signed up for food as well! Is this workout better or worse than last weeks? Here’s to some more fun for Friday Night Lights! Hope to see you there!
The good new is that this is a retest, so if you did the Open in 2016 you have a score to beat! If you didn’t do it that year, no problem, just try your best. If you’re on the fence about RX or scaled and you’re signed up for the open. Do the workout RX. Even if it feels like you don’t get a workout in. Do it RX, get your score, and then scale it and get your workout in. But if you can do it RX, why not try??
Everyone has an opinion, and just remember that your mindset matters here. People who “love” this workout will have a more enjoyable time with it. And honestly the workout is the same for everyone, so it comes down to your mindset on the workout.
If you are going into the working dreading life, hating each movement, negative self talk, etc then of course the workout is going to suck. That shouldn’t be much of a shocker. Instead find positive self cues to tell yourself during the workout, something that will keep the mindset positive.
At the end of the day remember something. YOU are choosing to do this. This is something you enjoy and take time out of your day to do. So ENJOY IT! Be happy, don’t be mad or sad about a stupid little workout. Enjoy the body and the skills that you have, and of course push it harder than a normal day and you’ll be happy with the outcome!
