A Beautiful Day to Lift Heavy


Strength in Conditioning for Monday, December 9, 2013

During an Olympic Lift, it can seem like all time stands still. We take a breath and mentally prepare as we step our feet beneath the bar. As we tighten our core in preparation we commit ourselves to the effort required for success. Then as we reach down and grip the barbell all becomes silent. Our minds are intently focused on the the impending dance between position, power, and timing — all which must be executed with the most refined precision. In the very next instant we find the bar resting in its final destination above our head, as if by zero and great effort of our own all at the same time.
