HTT – Training to Lift More: Lessons from my Weightlifting Journey
February 6, 2018 Halftime Talks

Initially the unsurmountable paralyzes our engagement. No matter how we view the inevitabilities of our future, there is a path we must discover to meet its fulfillment. My time weightlifting taught me valuable lessons in goal acquisition. There is no such thing as an insurmountable desire, but there are approaches that make it more or less probable. The path may be concealed or shrouded in mystery but that does not negate its existence.

In this episode of Halftime Talks, I discuss the process of approaching those aspirations that exist beyond our immediate comprehension and beliefs. I recounts my prior journey to one-day benchpress 405lbs. 405lbs is 4-45lbs plates on each side of the bar. In my mind it was the holy grail of lifting. How could someone who was afraid of the bench accept such a challenge? The right process and approach will enable us to bring a version of ourselves to the world that defies our early conceptions we hold. What is the right mindset to adopt? How do we become familiar and comfortable with an increasing demand on our ability? How do we develop the competence that bridges our becoming? Enjoy.
