I was reading my horoscope the other day and it had an interesting stat. It said research showed that if a stranger gazes at you for at least 8.2 seconds, he or she is definitely interested in you. If on the other hand the look lasts 4.5 seconds or less there is no attraction.
Interesting gem of knowledge but how does this relate to Crossfit?
2 things came to mind as i read this.
First, think about how long you spend starring at the pullup bar or barbell during any given workout. If you can limit your need to open mouth stare at the bar/floor/kb… your performance will improve. I feel like 90% of the time we stop during a workout to breathe we are just feeling sorry for ourselves. It is time to realize it and move on. Quit feeling sorry for yourself and pick up that bar and get moving!! Next time try to limit the time you spend staring at your nemesis to less than 8 seconds or people might start to talk…
The second thing that comes to mind is women. I’m just saying keep your eyes open.
