Wow! Barrier Broken. I have been struggling to hit 185 for some time now. It’s always been “right there”. Today’s program was max back squat (I’ll get to that later) and then heavy single snatch. This was my 5th attempt. I wasn’t leaving the gym until I got this. Got a pep talk from @acochren31 before this attempt telling me to commit to the catch. Don’t be scared of what could happen. You either make it don’t,,,,,you’ve already missed 4 times, so there’s only one thing left to do. @joe_no_se88 kept building me up with confidence with each failed attempt. It didn’t matter if I just missed it. He just kept building me up. And of course the best hype men anyone could ask for @alpha_iron and @haydenbaillio . Right before this attempt I reminded myself of my mantra. “I am Mike. I will not fail. I will be precise.” @saweverything
The support was amazing and could feel the energy in the gym.
Mobility and yoga helps too. #growmikegrow #myhypesquadisbetterthanyours #olympicweightlifting #streamlinecrossfit
