No rep again!…

So what is the importance of being fair to yourself and others and calling yourself out whenever you do not make a good rep?  The following is a list of examples of completely fictional things that could happen to you if you accidentally miscounted your reps during the Opens:

  • You would have to do Wall Balls and resort to doing SINGLES in the beginning of the workout
  • You would do really well and end up only demonstrating that you cannot back your scores up
  • You would struggle during Chest to Bar Pull Ups despite the fact that you crushed 13.5
  • You would fail to complete workout after workout after workout after workout…at Regionals!
  • You would prove to yourself and others through a lack of ability that your counting skills needs some polish
  • You would completely and suddenly lose capacity in skills that would prevent you from performing at your best
  • You would be absolutely baffled by the fact that you and your teammates will be outperformed by those who you consistently bested

Since these completely fictitious scenarios are completely fictitious then there isn’t a need to worry about it at all.  Just make sure that you keep yourself legit this year in this and all other workouts.

For you and your community,
