Reminder: “Murph” is coming up this Monday! Make sure to sign up for a heat!

It’s Benchmark Friday!

“Nancy” is one of the original benchmark workouts. Benchmark workouts serve to measure our progress over time. In today’s workout, we test our ability to control a barbell overhead with a high heart rate. Logging this workout and all benchmarks in an app or in a notebook will be useful to look back upon the next time we do “Nancy”.




“No one was ever wise by chance”


Let’s pretend we have two individuals out hiking in the woods.

The first trips over a root, and after scrambling back to his feet, kicks the root in frustration and storms off. The second individual trips over the very same root as well, but has a different response. After gathering himself, he looks around, refreshing himself of the importance to scan the path ahead. He then moves on, now paying closer attention to the ground in front of him.

One took the effort to learn from it, one did not.
Wisdom isn’t by chance… it is by choice.
