EVERY REP COUNTS! This is what needs to go through your head when you want to set that bell down. On the Tabata, enjoy your 10 sec rest, set the bell down to give your hands and shoulders a break. Cleans and SDHPs are all about hip power. Your arms are just the vehicles...the power is in your hips! USE THEM! Remember EVERY REP COUNTS! GAME ON!
Crossfit Central Lean Turkey's started their challenge with a goal setting meeting with the famous Ms. Carey Kepler! Carey was able to take the concept of Goal Setting and make it very simple. I thought it was too good not to share. She encourage all of our athletes to set "S.M.A.R.T. Goals".
Specific. Make sure your goal is specific. Don't just say "I want to wake up earlier"; how much earlier. How much do you want to decrease your body fat by? Measurable. The goal needs to be able to be measured. "I want to lose weight by Dec.2012". How are you doing to measure that goal? Attainable. The goal should be realistic within the time frame. If you have a 6 week challenge, losing 100# within that 6wks isn't realistic. Relevant. The goal should be relevant to the "challenge". If you are in a healthy challenge, your goal should be, "I want to save X amount". Time. The goal should have an end date. You want to lose 5% body fat by when?
Setting "SMART Goals" can be useful and helpful for all areas of your life! Once the goals have been written, use dry erase makers and write them on your mirror so you can see them every day!
This is another one for fun...or is it? Find a partner that wants to work just as hard as you. 1 person works at a time. Stay in good communication with your partner so you don't get lost on the counts...and be thankful it is sparawls and not burpees :)

This one is going to get rough and fast. However good form will save you a lot of pain. I would NOT go to exhaustion on 1 arm. Change over so you can make it with little rest. Remember to use your hips and your arms are just vehicles for the bell. You got this!

This one is another good endurance one. Just stay moving and you will be find. The movements are not hard, there is just alot of reps. The only one I can see you needing a break with is the 60mtn climbers, find a number get there and repeat. Don't go all out and burn out, remember you have to come back up the ladder. Recover on the run!
I love this one because it is all body weight! Put it in your back pocket for when you travel! Like the WOD on 9.27.12, you have to move and pace yourself! This WOD is made for the endurance athlete. Push Ups are going to be the hard one, pick a number and stick with it through out the whole thing!
On the swings, USE YOUR HIPS. I would recommend a palm to palm hand switch so the transfer is easy and clean. For the OH carry keep your arm in close, bicep to ear close. This will prevent any strain on the shoulder
