I have recently been battling with my mind and my emotions every time I step up to a loaded bar. Whether I am going to do a clean and jerk, snatch, squat, even just a simple box jump.

Its not that I don’t have the strength. It’s not that I haven’t done that weight before. Its that I put myself down. I tell myself I am never going to improve, and I believe it.

I want that to change. I want to take control of my mind. I want to prove to myself what I am capable of.

To be able to do that, I am focusing on technique at light weights. I am listening to podcasts trying to gain more knowledge and try to put it to use.

Below are some I have found so far;

I have also started stretching everyday. Its that small change overtime that can make the biggest changes in your performance. I know I have the tightest shoulders (my physio told me so!) So I am working on them to get that better overhead position.

How to work my mind to be more confident is another matter. One that I don’t know how to fix.

Message me or leave a comment giving me tips and tricks on how to change my confidence and fears. I am going to document how this all works out for me and let you know of my successes and failures.
