Active Rest Day
Get outside and do something active. Go rock climbing, take a hike, try something new, but most importantly, have fun staying active. Tomorrow’s going to be a tough one so make sure you’re rested up.
FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION
In CrossFit, we train specifically for performance, which sets us apart from many other ‘fitness’ regimens. We don’t train specifically to look good in the mirror, we don’t train to have as big muscles as we can possibly get. We train to be able to do things, not just look like we can do things, and this is important to keep in mind as we focus our training. Nevertheless, it’s a nice bonus that you not only FEEL more able, but you see changes in the mirror, which help to reinforce your diligence to continue pushing your limits in workouts. CrossFit creates able-bodied, efficient, powerful athletes that not only perform at high levels, but are also incredible physical specimens. So enjoy those changes in the mirror, and take a look at what kind of machines CrossFit produces.
