“Some of my best workouts come from thinking about people that piss me off. I would like to thank them, but then they probably wouldn’t give me any more motivation. So my quiet “thank you” is that 2 extra rounds I got on my AMRAP or those 5 extra pounds I put up on my bench press.”
This is Josh Bridges, 4th CrossFit Games Champion 2014, letting us in on how he finds that hard-to-get mental power needed to pull off the extra reps that you know is left in your body.
Josh Bridges has no problem with screaming in the gym to get those extra few reps out:
“The other day I stood up with a PR snatch and I was screaming at the top of my lungs like a crazy person. I immediately apologized to the guy in the gym, and all he said was ‘that was motivating’. It motivates me to see other people do this too — so don’t hold back! When else do you get to let out energy like that?”
– Don’t care too much about what other people might think. Inspire them!
– Focus on power and strength by letting all that energy out.
– Don’t give up – fight for that last rep!
