"ideas become dynamic when they become specific"
The past two weekends I have been surrounded by competition. The USA Oly/Crossfit Competition and The October Obliteration by Crossfit Champions. I picked up a couple of insights on competing and I wanted to list some of them here.
1. If you do not take yourself seriously, no one will.
Serious can be interpreted in a few ways. What I mean is preparing yourself for the movement or the workout, your best way and not worrying about the people around you or what they think.
2. The most athletic, does not always mean the fittest.
Efficient movement and skills can separate the average athlete from the pack.
*Important announcementI will be starting Jeremy Thiel's Book Club this Friday 10/15/10.
