Next time you are dragging through a WOD or a movement, try changing the way you count.
- Instead of counting up, count down your reps – This may help you feel like you are getting closer to being done
- Instead of counting by ones, count by twos or threes – This may help you feel like you are taking bigger chunks out of the reps
- Try counting in a different language (one that you know…obviously) – This could help you switch your focus off of the discomfort or pain
These strategies are simple, yet can make a huge difference in your performance. If you get yourself into a negative place during a WOD, try changing the way you count and see if it helps.
