Up-Down Sally” Pause Squats
135# M/95# WUp when it sings “Bring Sally Up”, Down and pause when it says “Bring Sally Down”. Enjoy!

Our minds like to mess with us, they like the comfortable, the known, the well trodden path. They like the confines of the boundaries we create for ourselves. Our minds like to set a limit and stay on one side of it.  Sometimes you just have to trick yourself out of that rut.”  (Like row 10k or Sally Squat with a team who will push you beyond those self-created limits and comfort zones!)

Mind games. That’s what you play every single day when you walk into the box and into life. Sometimes you will win, others you will lose. Sometimes you will be forced to see what your limits really are – or better yet what they weren’t. If the computer was flipped back and you had to blindly trust your coach on the pace – what pace would you row? How long could you keep it? Would you obliterate your regular working pace? Would you find a new level that made all the future rowing that much easier? If you were given a bar and asked to lift it – how much could you lift? If your coach loaded it for you, knowing your abilities, would you trust them, would you attempt it? How much of a PR would you hit by not knowing it was a PR in the first place? What could you whip out in a competition? Could you string those pullups together when there were so many sets of eyes watching and cheering for you? Would you make the MU or DUs look like child’s play just because of the atmosphere?

Our minds like to mess with us, they like the comfortable, the known, the well trodden path. They like the confines of the boundaries we create for ourselves.. Our minds like to set a limit and stay on one side of it. Sometimes you just have to trick yourself out of that rut. Sometimes you have to let someone else hold the limits, let them decide where they should be. Sometimes you have to trust that your coach knows your potential better than you do. Sometimes you just have to find a new game to trick your mind away from those nasty barriers. Limits, like fears, are an illusion. They are a way for you to tell yourself that you did your best today – but did you? Or is that just an illusion too?
