DRS Strong Week 6- Positive Mindset

“I’ve learned that you can keep going long after you think you can’t” -Paul Presley
There are thoughts that can invade and blur our thinking. There are physical limits that can impede continuing but there is one thing that we can control and that is our mind. Our mind is very powerful and it can help when needed. Week 6 was a test to your mental strength and perseverance; you saw high reps of front squats and countless pushups and dips just to mention few. All with a reason behind it, and one of the reasons is to prepare you for what is ahead. No, this does not mean that the reps will increase more and more, this means that as your body gets prepared and increases work capacity, your mind needs to expand to withstand physical challenges.
We had a primer example with out very own Kolbie Nguyen. She had been doing CrossFit for 3 years and was never able to do a rope climb. She had the strength and the background to do it but her mind lacked confidence. As of Wednesday October 5th, she completed an 18ft rope climb. This not only showed mental toughness but she is overcoming her fear of heights and training her mind to go farther then ever imaginable. Great job Kolbie!
Lets focus this week on mental strength and positive mindset, especially because week 7 will be testing week! Hoorah!
Look for the DRS Grand Opening Blog this week
