Three rounds for time of:

21 AbMat sit ups (feet in butterfly, knees out, no anchor)
42 bicycles (2 count)
21 pull upsDistractions are everywhere, pulling us off point, away from the things that mean the most to us in our lives. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just slap on a set of blinders, you know, like the ones that go on horses, to keep us looking forward, exactly where we need to go?

Maybe we can… through practice. Each time you walk into the gym, as you walk into the doors, go ahead and put on your blinders. Take all the things going on in the other parts of your life, especially the ones that are most pressing and stressful… and tuck them away – in a place that you can get back to when you’re walking out the door. During that 60 minutes, practice being fully present, thinking only about what you need to do to get the most out of your training.

Go ahead. Use the gym to develop your set of blinders. Having this as a refined tool in your belt is something that will pay off in all walks of your life.
