Daily Mindset
"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." — Viktor Frankl

We all feel the pain that life brings, but we don’t have to view ourselves as victims. Human beings are adaptable species. It’s why we’ve lasted this long and will continue to last. But while we’re here, we might as well continue to live happily despite the hardships we experience. Marcus Aurelius writes "a blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it." Marcus’ timeless words are urging us to turn everything that’s thrown our way into fuel. Hardship, disaster, tragedy and misfortune… the only proper response for such occurrences is to accept them for what they are and make the best of the situation at hand.

OPEN: 22% of your CGBP in each hand / PS 70% of 1RM / Dbl. FR lunge (50s/35s)

** Choose a weight that is challenging but that movement and tempo are still kept as close to perfect as possible. It’s ok to go a bit heavy today, but priority is movement.
** This workout is less about how fast you complete the reps, and more focused on improving your movement.

SCORE: Each "round" represents a movement, so record your weight for each.
Round 1 = DB weight for BP
Round 2 = weight on bar for PS
Round 3 = DB weight for FR lunges

Belinda (BUILD) (3 Rounds for reps)
For Quality
DB Bench Press @2112
Hang Power Snatch
Double DB Suitcase Lunge (10-8-6-4-2/leg)

Choose a weight that is challenging, but that you can keep your form as close to perfect as possible.

Barbell / Extra Strength

KO in OK prep
6 rounds x 90s each:
3 TnG Clusters (build every other round)
AMRAP calories on Bike/Row/Ski with remaining time

Clusters should be tough, but not a 3RM, think of hitting 80-85% of 3RM in last 2 rounds
