What NOT To Do During Competitions, Events or Games


During a CrossFit Event, or any other sporting event, you must work on your mental game as much as anything. If you can control your mindset, you can set yourself up for success no matter what the event is.

What NOT To Do During Competitions

1. Don’t take anything for granted

2. Don’t boast

3. Don’t go through it alone

4. Don’t talk about what you can’t control (what the workout will be, who’s going to score what, who’s going to make it)

5. Don’t bitch about everything (the WOD, the format, the weather, etc.)

6. Don’t focus on your soreness, injury, weakness or pain

7. Don’t doubt yourself

8. Don’t get caught up in what others are doing

9. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment by saying you “have” to, “need” to, or “must”

10. Don’t not eat, or eat a bunch of crap

11. Don’t forget that you chose to do this and it’s a gift

12. Don’t let setbacks keep you down

13. Don’t get down on yourself if you’re still new to this

14. Don’t let the pain and fatigue control you

15. Don’t forget what’s most important, and those are the basics like sleep, nutrition and mindset
