Sooo…you feel a little blah, perhaps stuck
It happens, we all hit a plateau once and awhile. Or, for some reason you missed a week or two and you feel like you are going backwards…
Here are a few ways to get out of that rut.
Sign up for a competition or an event outside the box:
We have seen it time and time again. Some outside focus, especially if it is with a team helps you shift focus and buckle down in a new way. You start to approach training, and working out in a different light. You don’t come in and just get by….you push a little harder so that you can be ready.
Something like: A CrossFit competition (individual or better yet team), a weightlifting or powerlifting competition, Spartan, Ragnar, 5K, 10K, etc.
So…find an event, then book a goal setting sesh with a coach and let us help you chart a plan. (Free- right here)
Use a Heart Rate Monitor.
We prefer the MyZone because it is integrated with Wodify, displays in class, and is much more accurate than a wrist (wearable) smart device.
MyZone holds you more accountable and gives the most accurate account of how hard you are actually working in class. It allows the Coach to help you figure out how to pace, when to push harder, and when to back off. If you want to up your game, get a monitor and measure your effort. (You also get feedback over the month…kind of hard to ignore the days that have no data!)
Go back to nutrition.
Yep, I said it. Your nutrition has probably tanked. It may have been 80-20, but now…its 50-50.

There are a number of ways to get after your nutrition plan. The first is to start measuring and recording what you are eating by using a tool like My Fitness Pal and a gram scale at home. After that you can sign up for the next Game Changer Challenge or Nutrition Coaching, or talk with a Coach for FREE and see where to go. Sign up HERE.
In any case here are some CrossFit Journal Articles that can help you get going.
CFJ-15 Avoiding Metabolic Derangement
CFJ-21 Zone Meal Plans
OK…the TL/DR is this….
Don’t suffer, don’t wonder, do a free goal setting check in and we can help you chart a course out of the slump.
