Session Notes – The Basics
Laying a foundation is critical. No one ever constructed a lasting house without first ensuring that the ground beneath it was stable. Your CrossFit career should look the same way: mechanics first, consistency within those mechanics second and then add intensity. It’s really that simple.
I feel very strongly about this, having watched hundreds of people come and go over the years. It is always those who know that at first it’s best to stay away from the bleeding edge of capability in order to learn the movements. Those with the patience and ability to put ego aside will see the greatest benefit from CrossFit. Those who want to throw caution to the wind and push their limits too far too soon never last.
Think about this the next time you’re faced with the decision of how to scale a workout.
