Daily Mindset
"All progress depends on the irrational person."
The thought that a human could run a sub 4:00 mile was absurd. The attempts to put human beings in a giant metal tube and throw them into outer space was thought to be even more ridiculous.
When we think back to the largest accomplishments in life, it was done by those who defied the status quo. It was done by those believed things could be done differently.
We know that change is uncomfortable. It has to be. But we welcome it, fully allowing ourselves to believe that something else is possible. In the words of Epictetus, "If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish, and stupid."

BUILD: Dumbbell (35/25) + 35 sit ups each round + max calorie row

• Any time there is a lot of rest built in, we’re looking to bring the intensity while we’re working
• There is no interference between the first two movements, so try to cruise through the lunges in order to get to the abmat as quickly as possible
• On the abmat sit-ups, move with a purpose, but focus on your breathing, as that will pay off on the rower
• It is better to get to the machine a touch later and hold a high power output than it is to get there very quickly and crawl through your pulls
• When rowing for calories, how many strokes you complete doesn’t matter as much as the power of those strokes
• Pick a {Calories/Hour} number that you see yourself being able to hold until about 30 seconds left in the 5-minute window
• Knowing there is 5 minutes of rest to follow, find that extra gear with under 30 seconds to go and finish strong
