I have not blogged in a while, so I decided to get a few things off of my chest.
If you think any of the points below are about YOU
.... THEY ARE!
If you are offended
Take it to heart and make yourself better.
5 Things That Really Bother Me
A pretender is someone who TALKS a good game, but does not take any ACTION to back it up.
|I want to train with you Coach...|
Stop telling me you WANT to train and then never show up.
Stop telling me you WANT to play college ball and then choose to sleep rather than make your morning lift.
Just be honest with yourself and admit you want to be average.
|Want to be Average ... Sleep In.|
Every time someone says, "You should do CrossFit!", I immediately respond with "YOU should do Crossfit".
If someone is telling ME to do Crossfit, they clearly do not like me very much.
Either that, or they don't know me well enough to tell me what I should be doing.
I train athletes to make them better at their sport.
I don't care how many hang cleans they can do in 10 minute circuit.
In fact, the more you can do, the less I am impressed.
3. How Much You Used To Do ....
I don't care how much you used to squat.
I only care about what you can do right now.
Getting older does not mean you have to deteriorate into nothing.
Look at this guy...
4. My Friends
This one actually references #11 on "30 Things I Learned Since I Was 30"
I met up with my high school buddies at a local restaurant last night for a Christmas Party.
I will let you fill in the blanks as to what they called me when I ordered a Grilled Chicken Salad for dinner.
So much for surrounding yourself with people that will make you better.
5. Throwing Paint on the Mona Lisa
With as much as I have talked about this type of thing, you would think that the athletes I trained would actually listen to what I tell them.
Instead of just executing their prescribed training program (the one I spend hours developing and reviewing), they decide to go out on their own and do "extra" work.
Luckily, they are "smart" enough to do value added things like long distance running or extra sets of heavy bench press.
Have we learned nothing???
Less is more ...
Grab a foam roller and stop destroying your body.
