Some Great Takeaways

John lent me a book last week that I had been wanting to read but honestly had forgotten about it. It has some great takeaways and a lot of great training advice that can be used both in and outside of the gym. Reading it right now before the 2018 CrossFit Games also seemed like great timing. If you have a chance pick it up and give it a quick read. It’s a short book that’s an easy read too.

In the book there is a discussion on focusing solely on the things that are completely within your control and letting go of those that are not. I think the picture shown in the book was just too perfect for what we will be facing during our own competition at the Desert Games. Some of you already know where to direct your energy while some of us may need a little guidance. Hopefully this helps:

Focus on the inner circle, things within your control and not on the outer external factors.
