When The PRs Stop
July 13, 2017
For all of us in a PR rut! We train hard, we eat right, we lift regularly.... and still. NO PR.
When you are just starting out in CrossFit, PR’s rain from the sky – gifts from above that reward you every time you correct the tiniest of flaws in your technique. Every day is a new personal record – your first pullups, your first RX workout – then a bit later, your first muscle-up or handstand pushup. PR’s are just something you experience because it’s a Tuesday and you came to the gym.
This is one of the great things about CrossFit – and one of the biggest reasons people keep coming back during that first year or two. You work hard and you are rewarded with that high, the rush of standing up that weight. Your first strength cycles are completed to the tune of massive PR’s on your squat, clean, snatch – if it has a barbell in it – you are PR’ing – until you aren’t.
