Oh The Clock!

We used to have stopwatches, the coaches carried them around as if the world was ruled by them. Then came the big ominous RED Clock-Gone-Bad! Now you see your time increasing on the wall in real time and you are doing everything you can to move faster or make it go slower, & no luck with the latter. But what if the clock wasn’t there? Would you push just as hard. Do you only validate your success by the time on the clock? CrossFit get’s a lot of flack because we are a bunch of work out junkies who is only concerned with our “FRAN” time. Time isn’t the only measure of success in CrossFit. The most important facet of CrossFit is form, function & efficiency. So before looking at the time on the clock to see if you are getting better, look at how your form is improving. Are you reaching full depth in the squat, is your chest to deck on push ups. Use the clock as a tool but remember that for long term goals it shouldn’t be your primary measure for success. With that being said, I still need to congratulate everyone’s performance in yesterday’s “Baseline” WOD times. Everyone finished with spectacular form and the movements were much stronger, and the plus…everyone finished under 6 min! Awesome work!
