Firebreather â€“ Fie-r-breâ€™-th-er: (n) 1. One who faces the trials and
tribulations of great physical opposition with an indomitable spirit. 2.
An optimistic energy associated with the heart of an athlete.
Everyone has an "inner" firebreather. You have to dig deep to tap into it. You gotta' want it bad!
Here's an excerpt taken from CrossFit Alexandria's Firebreather Manifesto.
"When the 95lb bar is sitting on top of your
chest, cutting off your ability to upload oxygen, & you make the
decision to keep doing Thrusters – even though you almost passed out 10
seconds ago – you are a Firebreather.
When you jump on the pullup
bar – without taking a â€œrecovery drinkâ€ – after running 400m &
doing 21 KB swings, even though your heart feels like itâ€™s going to
explode, your knees are shaking, & youâ€™ve lost your peripheral
vision – you are a Firebreather.
When itâ€™s 99 degrees
outside, & you sprint through the door after a set of burpees –
because you may have a shot at beating your own PR by 10 seconds – you are a Firebreather.
There is no difference
between normal humans, & Firebreathers. They donâ€™t have extra-large
lungs, or more â€œType 1â€ muscle fibers than the next person. They may not
be very athletic, & they may not have played any sports while
growing up. Hell, a lot of them havenâ€™t even run a marathon or competed
in a â€œIronmanâ€. But they do have something – something that any normal
person can have, but most donâ€™t want.
Firebreathers have the
ability to step across that mysterious line, & never look back. They
know whatâ€™s coming & how much its gonna hurt, but they run head
first into it – â€œno matter whatâ€. When (or if) you get there, youâ€™ll
know what Iâ€™m talking about."
