The “New” Whiteboard

I have had some conversations with a few of you and a consistent remark has been that you miss seeing the whiteboard of everyone’s results for the day on Wodify.

Pocket Coach does not currently have this feature and it may be developed for it either. He is the thing; this is about you and your progress and benchmarking your loads, volume, etc off of another is NOT ideal. You may be creating a glass ceiling for yourself or you may be biting off more than you can chew.

You need to be in tune with your body and its abilities. Know ahead of time what you think you can do. Then as you are warming up make the decision if you can do more or less.

As you read this you are probably thinking to yourself, “Ok, great Neal but what about seeing everyone’s scores.” So we are bringing back the old school! Post your results daily to the blog for the day. This is how we get everyone doing it. If you train in the AM and want to see what the PM did, post your results and others will begin doing so as well. 

If you have a comment about the training for the day or questions, post them to comments. This will help us understand what topics you are interested in reading about and make the blog more robust for you, The Community!

Go Post! Now Greg Williams!

Here was 7am getting after it this morning.

    Burner indeed.

    Great work by both AM classes today. Shout out to Little O’Malley with a sub 13 minute effort with the Rx weight on the bar.

    I couldn’t agree more Neal. I feel that there is too much emphasis on what everyone else is doing in a WOD instead of what you should be doing. If you bite off more than you should be doing, then you are ultimately slowing your progress. One of my favorite things to tell people is how important movement efficiency is throughout their work out. If you are able to maintain the most efficient bar path no matter how tired you are, you will be able to get more work done. If you choose a weight that is too much for you to maintain control halfway through the WOD, you are doing yourself a disservice and ultimately going to get less work done. Choose the right weight for YOU, and you will get the best workout possible.

    16.29 @80# for today’s workout. 250 meters never felt so long.

    Good morning! Great job on the blogs. Reading what Neil originally wrote might have come off a little negative, but read on! Neil what you wrote and G2 following up on it, absolutely outstanding!
    I got caught up and didn’t stay focus to what my body was telling me.I should have scaled down on the dead lifts on Fridays work out. I pushed my back too far and I am paying for it now. Your suppose to be taking a step forward, not two steps back!
    Keep up the Great work. Crossfit Boston has a wonderful community, thank you!
