Visual Controls for Workouts

I love my Windows Phone 7 with the new Mango update and the Round Timer app because it lets me photo-document my results. This is a level of accountability that did not exist when I was in college, and I think it’s great – same philosophy as using visual controls in lean manufacturing.  This is also an aspect of CrossFit that resonates with me – using the whiteboard, posting photos on the blog, being accountable because your workout is transparent to others.  As in business, this is the best approach to motivate flawless performance.


Next project is video analysis of technique.  Talk about a slice of humble pie.
