Re: What motivates you DURING a WOD?

A hustle mindset. That WOD is'nt going to do itself. Get em!! It needs to get done pronto. Sometimes I start whipping objects around my room before I leave for the gym.

When switching reps sometimes I'm reminded of sports, the hustle, if you give up on a play somebody else is gonna get the friggin ball. So grab whatever is next and get to it. Crush it!!!

I am motivated by ridiculously loud progressive metal.

Re: What motivates you DURING a WOD?

The thought that there is something, someone out there that's gonna get the best of me. I won't be paying attention, or I'll slip, and suddenly I'll be right in the middle of a giant s*** storm. Been there. Been lucky so far. I'll be there again. And I want to be ready for it, no matter what it is.

I've been lucky. Someday luck's gonna run out. That's my motivation.

Beating a previous time or weight PR.

If it's a real suckfest, the thought of some Marine (in full gear) over in Afghanistan trying to run down Osama bin Laden's *** while I'm enjoying my freedom in shorts and a t-shirt.

Re: What motivates you DURING a WOD?

As a future USMC Officer (currently NROTC Marine Option)- I believe that I owe everything to the men and women who have gone forward before me to defend freedom. Before every workout I get a marker and write the name of a CMOH recipient/fallen soldiers (general term encompassing Marines, Airmen, Sailors, and so forth) name on my wrist.

Those men and women give 100% every day- the least I can do is utilize every bit of strength possible in the hopes that one day I will be able to lead Marines.
