Daily Mindset
"When I write, I feel like an armless, legless man with a crayon in his mouth." – Kurt Vonnegut
It can be easy to forget that even the greats are full of awkwardness and clumsiness. Yet the man quoted above is known to have changed the face of American literature.
But despite Vonnegut’s success, he didn’t start that way. It was full of fumbles, false starts, and embarrassing mistakes. Yet where others in his shoes stopped, he chose to keep going. Forcing himself to move forward. He kept taking one more step, even when the process did not seem rewarding.
Awkward and clumsy are not just OK… they’re part of the way.

• This workout will likely center around the heavier barbell
• Let’s aim to complete these in 1-3 sets, choosing a break-up strategy that you see yourself holding for at least 3 rounds
• 1 Set: 15, 2 Sets: 8-7 or 9-6, 3 Sets: 5-5-5 or 6-5-4

• Double Unders can be tough coming off the front squats
• When you get off the bar to start the next round, just think about getting a set done, no matter how small
• This small set will help you feel like you’ve made good progress, because you found a way to keep moving forward
• 1-3 sets will likely be the sweet spot; 2 Sets: 30-30 or 40-20, 3 Sets: 20-20-20/30-20-10

• Hold a moderate pace that allows to attack the 15 barbell reps
• Go a little slower on the bike if that means going bigger on the barbell
