Skip: You guys. You lollygag the ball around the infield. You lollygag your way down to first. You lollygag in and out of the dugout. You know what that makes you? Larry!
(bonus points if you know what movie that’s from)
Every box has a couple lollygaggers. People who just seem to move slow. Who are the last to have their bar or stations set up for the WOD. Who seem to take forever to change their shoes. Lollygaggers!
I am not saying that these folks don’t work hard, certainly they do, but your body will adapt to the demands you put upon it. Specific adaptation to imposed demands. If you move fast, then you will be faster. It is that simple. Lift heavy and you will be stronger. Do agility drills and you will be more agile. But I digress.
Sometimes I stand right next to a lollygagger during the majority of the WOD, exhorting them to not step away, to get back on the bar, to move quickly and not walk from station to station. To a man (or woman), they have all been stunned at how much faster they can move.
Move fast, be ready, charge it. Defeat your inner lollygagger.
Where can you shave seconds in a WOD, where do you lollygag? Please post to Comments.

Emmett did it in 8:55 with 115# and chest-2-bar pullups. How about you?
