There are many ways to improve in CrossFit, but the picture below shows several different methods all in one single shot. Â Ethan (pictured in the middle) has taken many steps to up his game and take it to the next level. Â In the picture below, you can notice 3 different methods that he is using,
1. There is an iPad that is videoing the workout he is doing. Â He learned from coach Jason that he can video tape himself, analyze it (or have the coaches do that), and then improve. Â He already used that technique for handstand pushups and has made tremendous improvement.
2. Look at the edge of Ethan’s bar… I’m pretty sure he has a couple 5 pound plates on there as well, which means that he is lifting a little bit more than the presecribed weight. Â Getting out of your comfort zone is where all the magic happens and this is a small step that makes a huge difference in the long run.
3. He is training with three other athletes (Jeremy is missing in the photo) that are sure to push Ethan to another level. Â By working out with folks that can support you and will push you to take just a little bit less rest or to get just one more rep, you will consistently make their pace your norm, even if that seems impossible right now!
Way to go Ethan! Â I hope that this inspires the rest of you to take some small steps that will result in HUGE gains!
