We’re officially a quarter of the way through 2022, which means it’s probably a good time for you to audit the progress you’ve made toward the goals you set out to accomplish this year.
Are you satisfied with your progress so far or is it time to double down on taking the steps necessary to move the ball forward?
If you feel like you’ve exceeded your own expectations — great! It might be time to set some more ambitious goals.
If you feel like you’re right on track — awesome! Use that momentum to pick up steam heading into the middle of the year.
But if you feel like you’ve fallen short so far, that’s good, too! Having that awareness is powerful and there’s still plenty of time to turn things around.

Workout: 4 ROUNDS FOR TIME- 7 Unbroken Bear Complex*, 400m Run
*1 Bear Complex = 1 Power Clean + 1 Front Squat + 1 Push Press + 1 Back Squat + 1 Push Press
