Mental Toughness

DSC_1407

If asked, “What is your biggest strength?”, how would you reply?  Some of you might say your posterior chain, or your upper body, maybe even your gymnastics skills.  But would any of you say that the part of you that allows you to lift the most, go the fastest, or push through that last set of burpees is your mind?

Every aspect of what we do at CFW requires mental strength, I know we have all struggled with even showing up from time to time.  If you do not have a strong mind that is willing to push passed barriers and focus on the task at hand you will never make it in our community of fitness.  Check out the article below about mental toughness and visualization with regards to Olympic lifting.  These skills will pay off to all of you registering for the upcoming 7 week Olympic Lifting Seminar…there are a small number of spots left.
