When people start CrossFit (or any other fitness endeavor) they often want to hit the ground running. From day one they want to be leaping tall buildings and moving mountains. Trust me, I get it. We’re Americans, we want everything yesterday and we want it for free.
It’s easy to get the wrong idea about CrossFit when you watch ESPN and you’ve got competitions where all the women make a 205lbs clean look easy and the men crush a 300lbs snatch. We look at them and think, I CrossFit, I should be able to do that.
The piece that gets overlooked is the hours upon hours those individuals put into making what they do seem effortless. Think about a child just starting school. How many times do they have to write the alphabet before their letters actually look like letters? How many times do they have to pronounce words before they can read books? How many times do they have to use their fingers to count before they can do 2+2 in their heads?
I know what you’re thinking. I’m not a child and I’m not learning basic life skills. I challenge that notion. Many new CrossFitters are coming into the sport with little or no lifting back ground, and many that have experience haven’t been in the gym in 5+ years. You’re like a child. You’re learning. Learn the letters so you can form words so that you can read the book. Or in CrossFit terms, learn to squat so you can learn to overhead squat so you can learn to squat snatch. Crawl- walk – run….. Because once you learn to run you’ll be unstoppable!
