WOD Wednesday #40

Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes of:

- 70lb KettleBell Swing 9 reps
- 15-foot rope climb, 1 ascent

Do all goals get achieved ahead of time ? NO ! Do all goals get achieved to begin with ? Again, NO ! In my opinion proper goal setting consists of some goals being achieved and other goals being slightly beyond our reach for whatever the reason may be.

Goal setting is something that is controversial however if utilized properly can pay dividends if it matches your personality style. If you are so internally driven that goals make no difference in your performance, then GREAT! However, by tracking and setting goals for milestones in the gym and small benchmarks in our progression, we are able to feel accomplished momentarily and celebrate that win. Without appreciation or recognition of our progress we can sometimes forget how far we have come or diminish some of the things we have accomplished. But don't get me wrong, after you stop and smell the roses for a second, get back after it, GO FOR MORE !

The same can be said for nutrition, set a goal this month to eat out 1 time less per week and go from there ! The gym should be fun ! Find something you enjoy, challenge yourself, and track your progress.
