Just in case any of you were missing me....

Well we are working on day 3 of WOD’s without me….sad I know :’-(  How many of you feel like you are really working to your true potential?  How many of you feel that you could be working harder?  How many of you find it difficult to push yourself as hard as you would if I was there watching?  Just some things to think about.  Post in comments section and let me know how you are getting by on your own intrinsic motivation or those that are working alongside you.  I miss you guys, I hope you guys are having fun!!!!

Here are a couple of quotes by the entertaining Mark Rippetoe (runs the CF Barbell Certs)


• Your muscles cannot get “longer” without some
rather radical orthopedic surgery.

• Muscles don’t get leaner—you do.

• There is no such thing as “firming and toning.”
There is only stronger and weaker.

• The vast majority of women cannot get large,
masculine muscles from barbell training. If it were
that easy, I would have them. (mark rippetoe)

• Women who do look like men have taken some
rather drastic steps in that direction that have little
to do with their exercise program.

• Women who claim to be afraid to train hard
because they “always bulk up too much” are often
already pretty bulky, or “skinny fat” (thin but weak
and deconditioned) and have found another excuse
to continue life sitting on their butts.

• Only people willing to work to the point of
discomfort on a regular basis using effective means
to produce that discomfort will actually look like
they have been other-than-comfortable most of
the time. “
