Inside and out of your comfort zone.

CrossFit is all about new challenges. We take on new tasks so that we can grow is athletes and people. Sometimes the new task we're looking to achieve seems very overwhelming. This could be anything from a PR snatch to muscle up or even a double under.

And in order to get this new breakthrough, we'll try to align the stars as best as we can to set ourselves up for the best chances of success. For example that special jump rope that turns perfectly. Or that barbell that seems to spin faster than the others. That one pull-up bar that's the perfect height when you jump to it or that one corner at the gym when you seem to have the best attitude.

Now, this is all well and good we're trying to challenge ourselves for new breakthroughs. But after a while those helpful tidbits become crutches. And without are special gloves or special bar or special ropes we are unable to even willing attempt to achieve our objective because things are no longer perfectly set up. Too many times have I seen people refuse to do a workout because they couldn't get the Speal bar that they wanted. Too many times have I seen people give up on a movement because the first two tries with equipment that they're not used to didn't go exactly the way they'd hoped.

If you're looking to grow as an athlete or even as a person, consider not adding more weight or taking bands off. Sometimes it's simply about getting outside your comfort zone. Try something new!!! The Echo Bike. The regular pull up bar. Somebody else's rope. A way to truly challenge yourself without everything being perfect. Cuz let's be real, out in the world seldom does everything happened exactly the way you want it to and it's all about preparing for the unknown and unknowable that really makes us push harder and really grow.
