In early August of last year, I took inventory of some of my strengths and weaknesses as it relates to fitness. I love fitness because when I make big gains in the gym, I notice it translates into other parts of my life (work, personal, etc).
I use CrossFit to maintain my strength and conditioning so most of my thinking comes through that lens.
Below is a breakdown of what I wrote up in August 2014. I broke out items into three categories: strength goals, CrossFit goals and weaknesses. In addition to those, the ultimate goal is what I am striving for over time.
Bold = goal hit or no longer a weakness
- Back Squat 350 lbs (350lbs on 12/9/2014)
- Snatch 205 lbs (205 on 10/2015)
- C&J 245 lbs (257 lbs on 4/4/2015)
- 4:30 Isabel (2:19 on 5/26/2016)
- 4:00 Fran (3:33 on 9/21/2015)
- 4:00 Grace (2:58 on 10/30/2014)
- Gain Coaching Experience
- Butterfly pull ups
- Ankle Mobility
- Hip Mobility
- Hamstring Mobility
- Double Unders
- Ring Dips
- HS Walks
It is exciting to take inventory of these goals and weaknesses I laid out 6 months ago and realize progress was made. There is also more to accomplish.
