Daily Mindset
"Creativity is allowing one to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep." – Scott Adams
We all want to create something amazing in this life. A successful career, building a deep relationship, to anything and everything between. In this process, we easily forget how crucial it is to allow ourselves to make mistakes.
We learn after mistakes, no question about that, but there’s something even more important here – the will to try so hard, that we make mistakes. If we are living in a state of fear, that we’ll fumble the ball or miss the chance… we never take the risk. We move through life on safe.
Just like training for a 200lb snatch, we wouldn’t expect to be able to lift the weight on Day 1. We’d start at a lighter load, steadily building over the weeks. Countless misses and technical faults along the way, but we still come back to try once more. Fine tuning, until we’ve reached our "art".

Blitzen (Time)
5 Rounds: (15 min CAP)
20/15 Calorie Row
10 Thrusters (100/70)

OPEN(RX+): Thrusters (115/85)

• Expect the 5 rounds to take between 8-15 minutes to complete

• The barbell in "Blitzen" starts from the floor, not the racks
• Aim for something 1 weight jump up from what you’re accustomed to using in common thruster workouts
• The goal here is to pick a break-up strategy that we can realistically hold across the 5 sets
• 1 set is awesome, but only if that is something that can be maintained
• If you’re planning on 2 sets at some point, let’s do that from the beginning
• When we plan the break, the rest is a lot shorter than if we’re forced to break because of fatigue

• Row at a pace that supports your strategy on the barbell
• This is ideally the fastest pace that allows for an immediate transition to the bar for your planned set
• You should be able to get off the rower, walk to the barbell, and start your first set of thrusters
• This is better than rowing fast, taking a long chalk break, then starting the thrusters
• Row methodically, focus on your breathing, and smash the barbell
