“Discipline is choosing between what you want now, and what you want most.” — Abraham Lincoln
The desire to seek immediate gratification can be our mortal enemy. It drives us towards the comfortable choice. The safer option, or the compromise.
What we lack in those weak moments is discipline. Discipline is the willingness to stick to goals we set out to do. Emotions and conditions can tempt to sway us, where our discipline can see the temptations for what they are, and make the right decision.
This skill, as it truly is one that we can practice, has been linked many times over to being a critical component of success.
What our emotions drive us towards today, may very well be directly against what we want in the long run. So we must question them. Stacked side by side, here we need to choose. Which one do we want more? There can only be one.

WORKOUT BRIEF [0:00-5:00]
This is a 18:00-25:00 workout. But, we may get some fast finishers around ~15:00.
It will feel like a TTB workout for most. Scaling reps will be encouraged, so we don’t spend too much time staring at the pull-up bar.
The grip of the Deadlift into the TTB, and from TTB into the Row will be a factor.
Don’t be fooled by the “lighter” barbell, we have a lot of reps to tackle (72 reps total).
For scaling loads and reps, think about a load and rep scheme that can be cleared in 2-3 sets across each movement.
This workout is scored by the time it takes to complete the workout.
A descending rep scheme should be good mentally. The loading on the Deadlift should feel smooth as you build
The same is almost true for the TTB if proficient at TTB. If not, today we should pick a rep scheme that allows for 2-4 sets across all sets.
27/21 Cals = ~1:30. Like most times, recovering on the cardio is encouraged, until the very last one where we turn and burn!
GENERAL WARM-UP [5:00-12:00]
2:00 Squat Hold
10 Air Squats
5 x Hollow Body Hold (roll over to) Superman Hold
3 x 150/100m Row – Fast Efforts
Rest :30 between efforts
SPECIFIC WARM-UP / TEACHING [12:00-25:00]
FOCUS: PATIENCE IN THE PATH – TIMING DAILY VIDEO
As fast as we like to move to continue pushing for improvement. We can make huge gains by having ‘patience’ through movement.
We can see this in the patience of ‘staying over the bar’ longer in a DL, staying behind the bar longer before kicking the toes to the bar, and keeping the knees down until the hands have gone past them in the Row.
Having ‘patience’ in the right moments of any given workout can shave seconds, and sometimes minutes, off your final time.
Today, we can practice this across the DL, TTB, and cardio.

STRATEGY/EFFICIENCY TIPS (FOR ATHLETES)
Break the Deadlifts in 2-3 sets to save grip for TTB.
Break the TTB into 2-4 sets to prepare for more TTB in later rounds.
