1.  Have you ever been afraid to do a WOD?

2.  During strength training, have you ever told yourself before the lift… “this is going to be hard”?

3.  Do you feel you can handle the Rx’d amount, but are afraid to cross that line?

4.  Even though you feel physically strong, have your times leveled off and you don’t know why?

Well if you answered “YES” to any of these questions, consider your Mental Strength.  The following article was published by the CrossFit Journal and it is a MUST READ.  Download it here and really take it for all that it’s worth.  When you are done…  Apply it’s thoughts and ideas to your CrossFit training and see how much stronger you will become.
