Ben Bergeron argues that you have to be mentally strong before being physically strong. Strategy, comparison, external competition serves no purpose if you don’t have the mindset to support greatness. So, the next time you are staring at the WOD wondering if it is better to scale down and “go fast,” or change one area of the scaling and work on a skill, or work at a higher weight, talk to your coach. I am willing to bet he or she will have some great insight to help you progress in your fitness depending on where you are now, and where you want to go.
