The 2016 CrossFit LIFT-OFF is in the books. Be sure to slap a High 5 to Steve Bender for placing 2nd in the world Master Male 196lb- to 210lb weight class. Snatch 225, Clean & Jerk 275, WOD 315 reps.
I want to commend all who did the engine leg burner WOD #3 Monday.
I want to give a Hell Yea shout out to all athletes who pushed outside there comfort zone and exposed themselves to the Snatch & the Clean n Jerk max effort lifts. Last Saturday am Lift off , already tagged as the “Lebrono” session was allot of fun! Look forward to more in the future. No matter the outcome whether you are an experienced Oly lifter or just in the beginning of your journey we ALL have to start somewhere.
As a CF Coach. I for one can completely understand any apprehension of exposing your weaknesses in Olympic lifting in front of other athletes. I can coach the lift, progression and cue to fix faults of the Snatch, Clean n Jerk. But I suck at executing both lifts 9 out of 10 times. For me that’s the beauty and the challenge, it drives me to keep getting better in front of an awesome LCF athlete community.
My take away for any athlete is to expose yourself and see what and how you can grow.
