As a crossfitter, I am always looking for ways to improve my performance both mentally and physically. That being said, I recently came across a book that not only captures my passion for all things strength and endurance but also complements my love for literature. The book I’m referring to is “Four Arthurian Romances” written by Chretien de Troyes during the 12th century.

The book is basically a collection of four French medieval tales that glorify chivalry, knighthood, and honor. The stories revolve around the famous King Arthur and his knights and their heroic quests for glory and honor. The first story, “Erec and Enide,” portrays a heroic knight, Erec, and his quest to win the heart of his beloved wife, Enide. The second story, “Cligès,” tells the tale of a knight who falls in love with his queen, while “Lancelot” and “Perceval” focus on the adventures of these two noble knights.

Although the book was written centuries ago, its significance still lies in its portrayal of heroic values and chivalry. These values can be translated into our daily lives, especially for crossfitters. The grit, determination, and perseverance displayed by the knights is something we can all learn from and apply to our training. The mental toughness and work ethic these stories exemplify are qualities that crossfitters must possess to excel at their sport.

As a crossfitter, I am constantly pushing myself to the limit, just like the knights in these stories. Whether it’s performing a set of deadlifts or pushing through a high-intensity WOD, I channel my inner knight to face each challenge head-on. The book reminds me that just like the knights of old, I am capable of achieving anything as long as I put in the effort and stay focused on my goals.

In conclusion, “Four Arthurian Romances” is a must-read for anyone who is passionate about literature and crossfit. The book is not only a great piece of literature but also a source of inspiration for athletes who aspire to improve their performance both mentally and physically. So, pick up a copy, immerse yourself in the world of knights, and challenge yourself to be the best you can be.

I would love to hear from my fellow crossfitters! What did you think of the book? And what did you do in the gym today? Let’s inspire each other to greatness!
