Here is an excerpt from Lisbeth Darsh’s article “Of Course You Hate Chippers” from her website, Word with Lisbeth.  I’ve actually found a lot of people (including myself) who LOVE chippers!  Enjoy…

“The chipper is not short and sexy. It’s not strong and hot. The chipper is long and slow and grindy and it beats you down. But you keep fighting, you keep slogging, and you finish it. See?The chipper is most like life.

Life doesn’t come at you in rounds of three movements to repeat. Nor is it one lift, rest, lift, rest, lift, rest. And it’s sure not a 10 min AMRAP. No, most of life is a long series of unrelated tasks that beat you down and grind you into the ground. So you just keep chipping away at the list, the tasks, everything, until you get where you want to be. And then you keep going.

Maybe that’s another reason the chipper is important. Maybe the benefits are more pyschological than physical. Maybe you learn more about who you are in a chipper.

Do this one thing. Then the next. Chip away. Keep going. You’ll get there.”
