It takes a great deal of integrity to be a badass athlete. Cheating, cutting corners and missing full reps aren’t even options for athletes with purpose and integrity.
Yea, maybe someone is beating you. Maybe the class is waiting for you to finish. Maybe you’re sick of doing burpees. Maybe you feel like your elbows were close enough to full extension. Maybe you kinda forget what rep you’re on. These thoughts can all easily lead to you getting lazy and cheating a little bit to finish the work.
Decide now, what type of athlete you want to be.
Commit to being honest and full of integrity by deciding never to cheat reps or cut corners to matter what. You are better than that. Commit to your coach, your workout partners, your box and most importantly to yourself.
