Daily Mindset
"I define anxiety as experiencing failure in advance." – Seth Godin
It’s not abnormal to feel the nerves before something big. We have a several thousand year-old survival mechanism that wants to protect us. A bit outdated maybe, but it’s still alive and well.
This made sense when being chased by predators, or at risk of running out of food. Yet, our day to day actions are different now. Not only do we not need to prepare for catastrophic failure… we should resist it.
What we think, we will become. And if we dwell on the thought on failing, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. We start to focus in, on a subconscious level, on the reasons we will fail. Of course, we’re not in an imaginary world here… we will fail… but it’s the paradigm shift we’re after. Think less about all the reasons we’ll fail, and more, about all the reasons we will succeed.

• Have a plan going in, but also expect to have to adapt on the fly if necessary
• Tell your teammates where you are in the set, not how many you just did ("We’re at 30" as opposed to "I did 10")
• This makes any adjustments to rep schemes that much easier

• Shoot for 1-2 Sets
• 1 Set might be worth it to reduce the number of transitions, but if your transitions are fast, 10’s are less taxing and can be more sustainable later on in the workout

• Pull-up transitions are much faster than rowing
• Small sets will be sustainable well into the later rounds of this workout
• Switch out every 5-10 reps

• Let’s try to hold on for slightly bigger sets on the thrusters than on the power cleans, since the bar does not come back to the ground in the thruster.
