Communication is crucial in a Team setting. The ability to openly discuss, instruct, and take instructions is what builds a cohesive team dynamic. All superior Firefighting, Law Enforcement and war fighting entities spend a lot of time just working on drills and strategy for better communication.
In CrossFit we all know that pain is much better when suffering with someone else. Right? Of course. Today we are going to strengthen our communication and team dynamic with a fun chipper that requires nothing less than ultimate trust and openness. Knowing your partners strengths and weaknesses is one aspect of success in partner workouts but it is also having the humbleness to know when to rely on your partner to help you when you are feeling like you will fail!
Reaching out a hand for help is hard for us strong willed CrossFitters. Its tough to admit that you have reached your max. But it is necessary for success. On the flip side, being there in a trusting role to pick up the slack and always help your partner when they need it is truly what makes a valuable team member.
Never feeling afraid to ask for help and always being there to help a friend is truly the strength we wish to develop in CrossFit. Learn it, Live it!
