“My point to all this is that it is up to each of us to know our bodies and our minds, to know when we need more gym time and when we need less. Not all of us want to compete. Not all of us are in our 20′s or 30′s. Not all of us want to go 3 on/1 off. Some of us are really happy going 3x/week. Because we’re not solely interested in this one hour of our day, but we’re also interested in being pain-free the other 23 hours of the day — and to accomplish that, sometimes we need to not do so much CrossFit. And maybe because we remember that the original purpose of getting fit was to use that fitness for other things, not just to be the best at fitness.

Almost everybody has goals and resolutions set for themselves every New Years. Unfortunately, most of these goals are never reached. The world we live in encourages us to dream big, but rarely gives us what we need to get where we want to go. Lurong Living has built a Resolution challenge precisely for that reason. We know you are capable of reaching your goals, and the Challenge will unlock your true potential. We will help you start the process of making those dreams a little more of a reality.

“Like a loaded gun, a race car, and a scalpel, the intensity prescription comes with ample warnings. Its potential for abuse at the hands of the selectively ignorant is not due to a lack of prudence on the part of its purveyor. Indeed, intensity is the holy grail of training: efficacious, efficient and necessary. Its elevation to a position of importance may be Greg Glassman’s single greatest contribution to the training zeitgeist. Still, it is only truly understood if coupled with the attendant caveats: the tenets of relative intensity and the prescription of mechanics, consistency, and then intensity.”
