Intensity is Key

April 17, 2015

**** See You at the SOS Run on Saturday AM- we are closed for this function****

Volume, ask It Comes at a Cost, and is it Necessary by Chris Spealler.  Speal, the guy our sticky pull-up bars are names after, breaks down his experiences is training for competitive CrossFit.  As Sturgill Simpson says, it ain’t all flowers.

Be impressed with intensity, not volume.  You don’t get any prizes for doing the most work.  You get results from doing the most work in the least amount of time.

I think the best line in the whole post it Speal’s comment at the end of the comments section.  Train hard and have fun.  What is fun (for me anyway)?  It’s training really hard, moving well with good people and laughing about it after.

Trevor "Knee Sleeves Ya Later" was King of the TL Davis loop. Trevor came in at 4:03 and Ryan "gringo peligroso" had 4:07. PR's for both!
