After Tuesday’s WOD, I thought this might be a helpful article for some of us to read. Tuesday was rough for me— probably more mentally than physically. Given the hand release at the bottom of the deadlift, I tried not to set an kind of expectations but when the bar felt heavier than I thought it should, game over. I imploded a bit and started to really internalize the weight on the barbell. You know, I did exactly what I would tell anyone I was coaching not to do. But at the end of the day, I did better than I thought I might. I got to lift a heavy barbell and I got that much stronger. This was just one WOD on one day.
