March 1 we will start a competition to see who can improve the most on a weakness before April.
The goal of this competition and blog is to encourage athletes to work on their weakness. To eliminate them all would be impossible but our goal is to start taking down the most glaring issues and turning them into strengths. This competition will be continuous with monthly winners. What I would like is for each participant to write down a list of 5 weaknesses and begin working on 1 now. You will focus on improving this weakness for the next month and at the end I will chose a winner based on improvement. There will be a log book at the front desk where you will each be given a section. Each time you work on a weakness you will log it in the book. These logs do not need to be long and should take less than 2 minutes to write. I will periodically go through the logs and give you tips to help you along. Log entries could look like this
2/16/11 Worked on HSPU. Was able to do 5 with 2 abmats and no kip. Did 10 sets of 5
2/17/11 Worked on static holds against the wall. Did 5 holds for 30 seconds each
2/18/11 Was able to do 2 with 1 abmat today, did 5 attempts failing on my last rep.
I have also started a blog which will be a place where you can also log what you did but it is also a forum to ask your peers for help. For example if you are working on your pistol and seem to have hit a plateau you can post what you have been doing and we can all respond with tips. I will also post tips occasionally to help people along with their goals. This forum is meant to encourage and advise others in the competition.
At the end of each month I will evaluate log entries and the winner will receive a shirt that says crossfit hoboken on the front and Eliminate Weakness on the back and there will be a blog post about what your weakness was, the progress you made and how you accomplished it. These shirts will not be for sale and you can only get one by being me or winning. (I get one for organizing) This month the shirts will be red but that is subject to change. To participate all you need to do is sign up at the front desk and pay $5. The fee is only to cover the cost of shirts and any extra money will be used for future competitions. Since this is new feel free to post any suggestions/questions/constructive comments here or email me at email@example.com and check out the blog at http://eliminateweakness.blogspot.com/
While I will not be competing against you I will also be focusing on a weakness this month. I am horrible at double unders. That will change by the end of the month. What will you change?
