    Randi #4


    The other day I was observing some fairly new athletes lift as another coach was giving them instructions on how to properly perform a deadlift. I watched as he was going over step by step and correcting along the way and the cues he was giving them. Each time they seemed to improve on form and weight. Once the weight started to get pretty challenging you could see their whole demeanor change. You could see the intimidation set in. You could see their confidence slowly slipping away each time there was weight added. As I stood there still observing, they both failed the lift they attempted next. Frustration and disappointment was all over their faces. I knew exactly how they felt. I stepped in and told them that you can't let the bar and weights intimidate you. You have to lift with confidence. You can't be afraid to fail. Failing leads to success. You have to focus on a few things during the lift and nothing else. When you walk up to the bar you better be ready to give it a solid effort otherwise your wasting your time. It's going to be tough, it's heavy, but that's how you get better. They both successfully lifted their next lift. Was it perfect? No and it doesn't have to be. What I saw was a smile on both of their faces and confidence that was regained. Your workouts change when you approach them with confidence. Don't let objects, numbers, weights, reps, times, scores intimidate you. You focus on you and give a solid effort and work on the little things.
