Don’t “Pike” the Feeling ….

Soon after you start coming to CPMFITness you learn how to release the animal inside of you.

Most people don’t realize how hard they can truly push themselves. But when the music starts blasting, the weights are getting thrown around and 12 other people around you are cranking it, you find yourself in that WORKOUT ZONE and nothing can stop you…

Ever feel like that?

Which brings us to our next Rule to Live By: “The O.T. All Out Effort Principle”

“O.T. All Out Effort” is pushing yourself to the very last second… The very last no matter what, and finishing what you started!

Two things happen every day during a Workout of the Day.
1. You O.T. it!
2. Or you don’t and you are a …. Piker.

For example, here are two Scenario’s of the difference between “O.T. All Out Effort” and a “Piker”

Yesterday’s  Workout  was the “Death by 10 meters”: EMOTM until failure you complete 10 meter runs. Increasing 1 10 meter run every minute until failure. For example 1 first minute, 2 the second, 3 the third and so on and so fourth until you cannot complete the amount of meters in the allotted time given.

What do you do?

“O.T. All Effort”: You don’t care what the clock says you are just gonna run your little tush off until you can’t run anymore? left because you are too busy pushing and working until the very last second!!!

“Piker”: You stop because you don’t feel like running anymore, or are feeling a little gassed, or  you want to “save” your energy for the rest of the day ahead.

-Next Scenario-

You are 30 seconds away from finishing an AMRAP 20 minutes of Wall Balls, KB swings, and Pushups, you have just completed your 9th round and there is no way you will hit your goal of 10 rounds…what do you do???

“O.T. All Out Effort”:
You complete that last pushup & jump up and start the next round! And fight for every last second until the clock hits 20 MINUTES!

“Piker”: You bag it and give in to your fatigue and let the last 30 seconds eat away while everyone else is working HARD!!!

Have you experienced O.T. Effort or were you a Piker at one time?

I think it is safe to say we have all experienced both.

O.T. All Out Effort is the magic formula for success. It gets you from getting results to getting UNBELIEVABLE RESULTS! Not only that, it gets you to believe in yourself, have confidence in yourself, and build bullet proof mental toughness; where no matter what happens in your life you will focus on the success and not settle for anything less.

The great thing about CPMFITness is you have an opportunity daily to make that O.T. Effort happen and a place that encourages, supports and pushes you to get there.

CPMFITness what are you going to choose to do in your workout today?

Giving it your all does not always end up in a PR, or better time, it is just giving it your all for that day and believing in yourself to push a little further than you are comfortable with.
