Don’t get WOD drunk
Anything look familiar? All these items were found in the gym. Make sure to grab the clothes you came in wearing or took off during the workout before you leave. Pick up your water bottles, wrist wraps and weight belts. Put away the equipment you used and clean it if you left your juice all over it. These might be things you normally do but after a tough workout somehow you seem to be forgotten. What does this mean, you are WOD Drunk.

WOD Drunk (adj.): people so jacked up from trying to “score more points” that they don’t know who or what they are anymore.”

Greg Glassman (the founder of CrossFit) “Men will die for points.” This means we put point and/or time values on workouts as a generic way to monitor our power output. Simply put, go faster, lift more weight, or score more points and your power output is increased. Write those scores where others can see them or train alongside others doing the same thing and everyone steps it up.
People will push themselves to the limits of their physical ability to get a better score. If the goal is to always be faster and score more points. This is great in many ways to build our physical and mental strength but can be counterproductive in some aspects.
People may get nauseous. They might have to stop, they run to the restroom or outside. They speak incoherently. They are performing movements with horrible technique, and they are unresponsive to coaching cues. Sometimes, even a puking session is involved. After the workout, people forget a range of items in the gym when they stumble out. Shirts, shoes, cellphones, sunglasses, water bottles, wrist wraps, weight belt, jackets and jewelry can all be found in the lost and found at any given time. If an athlete is consistently hitting WOD Drunk, it’s time to start making some changes in their workouts. Simple things like turning off the clock, adding rest intervals, and doing team workouts instead of individual workouts are a great way to reel people back in.

Of course, alcohol drunk is all good….in moderation.
So how WOD Drunk are you before you leave the gym? Sober up!
