Let me get up on my soap box here for a minute. Okay so I’m up on it now… I may be preaching to the choir with some of you, but for others maybe I’ll get through.

You all know why you do CrossFit, to get fit, to be healthy, to lose weight, to make friends, to be strong, yada yada, but why do CrossFit if you are going to cheat yourself? If you want to cheat yourself, go do bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, and read a magazine on a stationary bike. What I’m saying for everyone who is confused right now is this; please don’t cheat reps.

If you happen to miscount a rep here and there in some MetCons it’s not a big deal, and we don’t care about that. But there comes a point in time where it’s obvious and we can’t help but notice. Most of the time we leave it alone because if you cheat on reps you just cheat yourself, but at the same time, if you cheat a workout we have to put it on the board. And that’s not fair to everyone else. So do your best to count correctly, and keep up the hard work. That’s really all we want anyway…good hard honest work.

Alright I’m stepping off the box now. Sorry for that.

Let’s live the by the honesty policy,
<3 Coach Miss J

Weeeee with a weight vest!

    I try my best to count correctly but at times its really hard when you’re working fast and you are really fatigued. After calculating electrical loads all day at work the last thing I want to do is count reps. This is what makes Crossfit so great, because it’s not only a physical challenge but a mental one as well. You have to constantly think about what rep you’re on, if your form is correct, how much time is left on the clock, all while telling your body to fight through the pain. Like my buddy Reggie always says before a big rugby match, “Get ya mind right!”

    Agreed James! I like that quote, maybe I’ll steal it at times.

    I say call it out! You have my permission to make any of my bad reps public. However, I totally agree with you J, it is a tight rope. We are all there to better ourselves and when we loose correct form, or short our reps (on purpose) we only hurt ourselves, but we also take away from others hard work. And you just don’t do that to family.

    ps… I heard that T hit 120 on 1 RM pull-ups….hope someone was watching his reps! Just kidding, way to go T. I am sure I speak for everyone when I say thanks for taking another #1 spot.

    While I was doing my measly 45lb pull-up I did bear witness to TL’s 120lb pull-up…I’m with Ben. Coaches, if you see I have bad form and think my count is off please correct me.
