Pete, repeat, and retest – 151006

Everybody had a heck of a time at bootcamp on Sunday!  Tough and fun!


Why is retesting and reassessing an important aspect of [not just CrossFit, but] everything we do?

Well, if we don’t know what’s working and what’s not working, how do we change anything to make sure progress is made?

I know what you’re thinking:  D’UH!

Yeah, I know…

…sometimes I get caught up not wanting to retest things also like, say, “Fran.”  No matter how many times I do “Fran,” I get nervous before doing it and it always hurts.

But, it’s gotten better every time I’ve done it [up to this point].  It may not always be that way but at least up till now, I’m getting better every time.

In the meantime, if something isn’t working, if you’re not progressing, or if you’re going in the wrong direction:

  1. Find the limiting factor
  2. Work on eliminating the limiting factor
  3. Always test and retest (this could include movement, mobility, nutrition, workouts, sleeping, other daily habits, and any other baseline measures of success you might be using)

Most importantly, use the test and retest results!
