Mobility WOD

Three rounds for time of:
30 Kettlebell Swings (1.5 pood/1 pood)
20 Burpees
Two rounds of Cindy (5 pullups/10 pushups/15 squats x 2)

A pood is a Russian measurement of weight for the Russian kettlebell; one pood is 35 lbs., and 1.5 pood is 53 lbs. Post time to comments.

Webster’s dictionary defines consistency as, “agreement or harmony of parts or features to one another or a whole.” Consistency requires patience to know when to act, diligence in the preparation, and fierce determination to see the mission through. In my mind, that also describes the core of the CrossFit athlete. Each skill requires practice and patience in mastering the technique, diligence in making practice perfect, and every rep leads up to the athlete achieving his or her goal. “A harmony of parts to one another”….

Have you ever seen what consistency looks like? Watch this video of Casey and Natalie Burgener from the USA Nationals. The film takes each of their lifts for snatch and superimposes it on the other. They both start in the same spot, hit all of their positions along the way, stay patient to get a strong finish, and land in relatively the same position. None of that happens by accident. It takes hours of practice, millions of reps and great sacrifice to get that one perfect lift. And, it was all because they were consistent along the way.

Here is another example, because we all know in real life, things can sometimes go awry, and Casey comes back to perform a great lift.

What are your goals for CrossFit, and what are you doing consistenly to achieve them?
