#TBT 2015 @crossfitgames Speed Snatch Ladder. ________________________ Right before this I missed the lift and dropped this same barbell on my head, which slightly blurred my vision! After I got up, I knew I had to go for it again and their was no option. So I took a walk back to the start to chalk up (never thought about leaving the floor) on the walk back, which seemed like forever, the voices came. 😇Do it, you got it! 😈you can’t do it, your gonna hurt yourself! But it was clear I had to go for it! ______________ As I started to approach the bar more voices, “you got 4th whether you do it or not! You don’t make any money!” “You’re tired” “didn’t it feel heavy” “don’t get embarrassed again” etc. _____________ This is the final seconds before I go back to the bar & from here on it was CLEAR! I’m snatching this weight, and I said as I grabbed the bar “You are going for a MF ride” meaning once my hands are locked in there is no turning back! _______________ Shout out to who ever took this video, almost 4 years later it’s still in my phone. And shout out to that Awesome Crowd for the support! I needed all of you in that moment. @liftheavyoftenasineveryday _ happy #TBT #LiftHeavyOftenAsInEveryday #UnorthodoxTraining #CrossFitGames
