10 Burpees”Do or do not. There is no try.” Most of us know that phrase in the kitschy, pop culture way it gets tossed around. Have you ever stopped to think about the deeper meaning, though? In the context of your workouts? I find myself in class reminding students of this concept frequently. When I ask what weight someone is doing, and they respond, “Well, I guess I’m going to try ninety-five pounds.” Oh really? Is that how you are going to succeed, by walking into the situation with an I-guess-I-might-do-this attitude? Or would you be more likely to set yourself up for success by thinking, “I am doing ninety-five pounds.” It might seem silly. You might think, it’s only words. But I can tell you there are times when I can tell you for certain someone is not going to make a lift, just off the look on their face. If they walk in defeated, they will be defeated.
