864 STRONG – Gunny’s Blog / Thursday 08.04.2022

864 STRONG – You Matter! The people around you today matter.

And the Lord will be king over ALL the earth. On that day there will be ONE Lord—his name ALONE will be worshiped.
-Zechariah 14:9

“The irony of the gospel is that the ONLY way to be worthy of it is to admit that you’re completely unworthy of it.”
-Tim Keller

SMILE! You never know who needs to see it.

The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything. Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.

Drama does not just walk into your life. Either YOU create it, invite it, or associate with it. Don’t complain about it if you are the one driving the drama bus.

The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off. Be yourself. Be Happy.

You either live a self directed life OR a God directed life. Your choice. There is no in between. There is no almost. Don’t convince yourself otherwise.

If WE don’t support OUR community – what will happen to it?

Nutrition Tip: Results happen in the kitchen!

Today’s schedule: 5:15a.m./8:00a.m./4:15p.m./5:15p.m./6:15p.m.

864 Strength + Conditioning – The 864 GRIND: Show up. Do hard work. Don’t complain.

The strongest (mentally and physically) are the ones that just show up each day prepared to do hard work even if they don’t know what the workout consist of. STRONG or SOFT? Your choice. Hit it hard or move over! Be STRONG!

Before you start today’s training – Goat Work/Skill Work. Mobility/Warm-up/Remember – the Buy-In is not your warm up.
Can’t or Won’t? What’s holding you back?

I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.
-Sir Winston Churchill

How hard are you willing to work today to reach your goal? Work hard and share a word of encouragement with someone today.

The GRIND never ends! Be STRONG. Be HAPPY.

RX = Form / Full ROM = Legit. Move fast and get reps. Show up and grind!

RX Movement Standards –  There is no almost RX. It’s 100% RX’d or Scaled. Scale based on your strength/motivation level. Movement standards will always be covered before the training starts. If you are not sure about a particular movement/exercise please be patient until we cover it as a group.

Strength / Week 3 – You will have 15 minute to find your 1RM Press – work up to a heavy press. Remember to log your strength numbers.
Warm up – start adding weight on the bar until you hit that strong set. Push each other today. Our priority today = Get Stronger. Is it a PR day?

“If you need music to motivate you, go find something else to do.”
-Josh Everett (CrossFit Athlete/Coach)

10 RFT:
5 Thrusters (135/95)
5 Burpees
Time Cap: clock stops at 12 minutes

#1 Goal Today: Mind your OWN business. It shows respect and maturity.

RX – Keeping LEGIT movement standards are just as important as your time or the amount of weight used today.

Social Media tip of the day: How far are you willing to go for attention today? Where do you draw the line between private and public?
Social media addiction is real. Are you an addict? Can you unplug? Have the wisdom to show restraint.–Proverbs 23:4

Don’t tell us. Show us. 3,2,1 Action!

You guys are awesome! See you in the gym….
