Wednesday 121118 Some Guided Visualization

WAIT.... DO NOT scroll down to the bottom of this page just to see the WOD and then go to bed.  
Let's first conduct a short experiment.  The purpose of which is to see if we can increase the outcome of your training session tomorrow simply by changing the way you think about it.  Meaning- let's see if you can change the way you THINK about it even BEFORE you see what it is.  Then while creating positive thoughts about it... let's see how well you do.  This is not going to be a very well controlled study- but perhaps there will be enough anecdotal evidence so shape a hypothesis.  Here we go:

Think about a few different movements in various WODs that you are good at (stay positive now!) - movements that cause you to have an even greater sense that you are becoming fitter, stronger and generally more useful.  Only GOOD thoughts.  See yourself executing those movements successfully, see others cheering you on and happy to see you performing so athletically.    There- some guided visualization to get you in the mood.

Next please repeat after me, "The WOD I am about to look at now..." (repeat it outloud).  "... will make me strong, powerful and fit." .... (repeat)  "Though it will be difficult, I can push through and emerge victorious"....  I will move through each of these exercises with force, grace and determination.... I am going to crush it" 
Ok- now when you scroll down and look at the WOD... you are going to say outloud these words,  
"YES, I was HOPING this would come up today!"  Practice it... okay- now scroll down.
Lee wins most creative with Odd Object Grace.

Wednesday's WOD: classes at 7, 9, 10am and again at 5pm.  Strength with Ondrej at 6pm.

1000m row for time.
Rest as needed, then:
21-15-9 reps for time of:
Anchored Sit Ups, 20 pound dumbbells
Wallball Shots, 20 pound ball
Post row time and Triplet time to journals/chalkboard.
Now- ONLY good positive thoughts about this until after your WOD ends... you will do GREAT!
