8 reasons why your workout isn't working for you.

June 3, 2016


Hi all,


For the next 8 days I will be posting 8 reasons why your workout isn't working for you. Why you may not be getting the results you desire, or why you may feel you are just fighting a losing battle.


1. You're just not working hard enough.


If you have been exercising consistently for several weeks, months or years, it's definitely time to increase the intensity and start pushing yourself. As you work out more and more, your body adapts and becomes more efficient at doing that certain activity. This means that over time, the WOD that was challenging for you three months ago doesn't provide the same results or stimulus to the body. In fact, you're actually burning fewer calories and your body is no longer changing if you're still doing the same old thing, the same weight or working at the same intensity.


Remedy: In order to get results from CrossFit/exercise, you have to regularly push yourself beyond your bodies comfort zones, increase the weights, work hard, push your body physically and mentally. It isn't meant to be easy, if it was everyone would be fit and healthy, and the NHS would save millions.


Mentally everyone is different, but physically we are all cut from the same cloth. The human body is only as powerful as the mind will allow. You are your own enemy in this, the coach can only do so much, it is up to you how hard you push, how much you want it, or what you do in the other 23 hours of the day.


Results or excuses…What will you chose?
