    Below is an article that I read today on HyperFit USA page (that’s Julie Foucher’s and our very own Amanda Neyhart’s old box in Ann Arbor). This article is clearly in response to the Josh Golden video but the essence of the article is something that can be applied at all times. Even the best of us need reminded from time to time what this CrossFit thing is all about.

      This is an awesome article. He puts what we’ve all stressed into much better words.

      The most important point that he makes here is that the main intention of the clock is to create a data point, or reference, for yourself based on your performance (key words: yourself, your performance). Once you’ve created these references for yourself, that’s where your competition stems from. You are now competing with your previous time, weights, reps etc. However, what most people don’t get is that the only way to get an accurate comparison is to do the workout to the EXACT standards as you did it last time. Going ass to grass on a squat on one rep and then just hitting parallel on the second is NOT the same thing, even though they satisfy the standards. Be consistent with yourself.

      One reason why I like the open and other competitions is because you have to complete reps to a standard with a judge watching you as well as many spectators. This is where you’ll see athletes record much lower performances than expected. Basically, these athletes stick out like a boner in sweat pants. No hiding it.

      We all just want you to better yourselves on a daily basis. Watch you PR and perform at higher levels. We definitely do not talk amongst ourselves (coach’s) and say how much better one member is than another. We certainly do talk about how much better you have all gotten over the course of a few months, more or less.

      I think we have great members at our gym who focus on bettering themselves and the competition between two or more members is nothing more than friendly. But, with some, the competition with yourself to get a better time on a met-con has been obvious that you’re staring at the clock at the top of every short-repped sit up. Worry about the standards (YOUR performance). The times and weights will get better. Trust me!
