When we are asked “who” we are, we default to our past. We define ourselves by our resumes. Although our past may give us insight of where we’ve been, it cannot be what defines us…. for it’s the past. When the question however askes “what” we are, we tend to give a different answer. We describe who we *really* are. It’s one of character, values, and beliefs. Will we be defined by who we’ve been in the past, or by what we stand for today? Let character be our loudest statement.

Light Up Your Core
Here are six drills you can add to your accessory work that will strengthen your core muscles and build some solid strength foundations.
Stop Flapping Your Arms During Double Unders
So you got your first double under, but you’re now onto the next problem…you just can’t string them together. You may be suffering from what the experts call “flappy arms.” Don’t despair though, give this drill a try and start mastering your dubs.
Avoid Wallball Burnout
Wallballs can suck all the life out of any WOD and make everyone wish class was over for the day. I mean, there’s a reason it’s called “Karen”… If you find yourself getting crushed by monster sets of wallballs, try these tips in your next workout.
Strengthen Your Rotator Cuff
We could all use a little more stability in our shoulder, and strengthening the rotator cuff is a great way to do it. Grab a band, two change plates, and give this a go during your next warm-up.
Start Your Squat With Proper Positioning
