Daily Mindset
"I was complaining I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet." – Confucius
A short story to share.
A man walked into a shop to order some flowers to be sent as a gift to his mother, living 200 miles away.
As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing. He asked her what was wrong and she replied, "I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars." The man smiled and said, "Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose." He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flowers.
As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, "Yes, please! You can take me to my mother!" She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.
The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the gifting order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.
At times, we can take many such relationships with our family and friends for granted.

Back Squat (Build to a 5RM)
** We will be re-testing this 5RM at the end of this current cycle, but more importantly, we will use this number for percentages in our squat waves starting next week.
** There is the option to stay at the same challenging load for 3-4 sets if you are not confident with back squatting to go for a maximal load today.

• The one movement we’d likely have to break up today is the kettlebell swings
• Use the air squats as your pacer – finding a speed that allows you to complete the swings ideally unbroken
• Going big on the swings allows us to maximize our time spent moving
• If you’re confident going unbroken on the swings and the double unders throughout, feel free to increase the cycle time of your air squats
• If you need a little more time before picking up the bell, just slow down the squats and try to get your breathing back a bit for the weighted movement
