“80% of success is showing up.” – Woody Allen
We can become obsessed with achievements. We chase the weightlifting PR, chase the next promotion, chase the next “X”.
As an example, let’s say we’re moving through a 10-Week Snatch program… and things are feeling great. We’re 9 weeks in, and we moving so much better than when we started. The same weights we started with feel so, so much easier. What used to be a heavy lift for us is a no-brainer now.
But until we move a single pound over our current PR at the end of the cycle, we don’t allow ourselves to consider that we’re better. And if we test out at Week 10 of the cycle, and do not PR… what would be our immediate reaction?
