Last weekend many of your fellow 818ers participated in the final event of the Weightlifting Development Series. This meet was the culmination of over a month's worth of dedication to refining Olympic lifting techniques and the personal records, of which there were many, proved that the hard work paid off. In addition to the hours put in toward training many of you got to experience competing in front of your peers. Normally, CrossFit competitions are held in heats where you (and your judge) are part of a larger group working out at the same time - the event this past weekend was different because you and the barbell were alone on the platform while everyone else watched.
Situations like this are a true test of mettle and speak volumes of a person's ability to perform under pressure. We've all seen the highlights on ESPN and been awed by the buzzer beater as the clock runs out or a walk-off homerun in extra innings. During our meet some of us missed one or two lifts and had to find the courage and confidence from within to make the lift successfully on the final attempt. How do you react when you have you have to perform in a do-or-die setting? Do you fold and give up or do you focus and find a way to get the job done?
