Workout of the Day (WOD)

Tuesday 2/3/15

Ok, enough blaming family, work, the Super Bowl and the holidays for how you're working out and eating.

How to stick to your workout resolution:

Plan workouts in advance, for example, at the start of each week or month. Write each day you plan on working out on the calendar, then cross them off as you complete each one and post the results where you can look at them daily. A Calendar, phone app or log book in the gym works great for this.  You're more likely to work out if you can see actual progress.

Train and compete for a sport or annual event that you enjoy. The competitive motivation will add dimension to each workout plus it's fun.  Whether it's a 5k, half marathon, full marathon, triathlon, intramural sports or cough cough....the 2015 CrossFit Open(registration starting in the gym soon).  Competing is a good way to increase the intensity, shoot for goals, have a good time with friends in the gym and stay excited for working out.  It's amazing how much discussion goes on in the gym regarding workouts in the Open, how to attack them, your goals, how you did and how you hope to do.  It's a good time.

Get a checkup and tie workouts to your health levels. If your blood pressure or cholesterol is high, set a goal or baseline to get them down. Decreasing your risk of disease is a great motivator.

Find training partners who will hold you accountable. Close friends and family members may not be ideal if they won't be tough with you. Find new, less forgiving workout partners when you feel a need to achieve.
