:: Toya’s Tip #3 – Risk it to get the biscuit 11/18 ::
You have to put yourself out there and try new things! Challenge yourself in the gym and DON’T be afraid of failure. CrossFit is hard, clearly, and you’re not going to be perfect at everything. Failure is going to happen but that’s how you learn and get better. Do the double unders in the wod, put more weight on the bar (IF IT IS SAFE) instead of taking it easy, use a lighter band (or no band at all!) on those pull-ups, etc. Challenge yourself to do more things in the gym and if you fail, so what? You’ll get better and eventually get it, but you will not eventually get it if you never try. And nobody is judging you if you, for example, try a heavy squat clean and fail or if you take extra time to do doubles instead of singles. Actually, it is more admirable to see people pushing their limits. Pushing yourself makes success that much sweeter.
Everyone at the gym wants to see you succeed! Don’t be afraid of failure! You gotta risk it to get the biscuit.
