Cherry Picking

Cherry picking in our Crossfit world is selecting whether or not you will come based on the workout that’s put out. Athletes “cherry picking” choose whether or not to workout based on their own capabilities, fears, or dislike of movements to name a few reasons. The result is always the same, stagnant progress in your evolution in fitness and as an athlete, as well as hindering the common goal: general physical preparedness!  Cherry picking is exactly where you will find plateau’s in your journey!

Common Cherry Picking:

“That looks hard, I’m not going!”
“I’ve never done that, I’ll skip today!”
“Are you kidding me! I can’t do that!”
“Weightlifting? I don’t want to get big!”
“I don’t like running, I’m not going”

I challenge all of you, to not cherry pick workouts you deem unready for, uncomfortable with or know you just won’t enjoy.  It is in these workouts where you truly gain the most to include mental strength!  I challenge you to attack an area you do not enjoy or an area where you are weaker and attack it with positive energy, belief in yourself and a powerful will to overcome that battle, I promise the results are well worth it.
