Pick Up The Bar

Pick up the bar.

Stop over-thinking everything.

Stop putting ten different cues in your head right before you lift. Stop obsessing about:

  • your feet
  • your grip
  • your hands
  • your chest
  • your lumbar curve
  • your shoes
  • chalk
  • the tension of your hamstrings
  • your ancestral lineage
  • and whether cream in your coffee is an unforgivable affront to the Paleo Gods

Want to know what CrossFit Founder Greg Glassman had to say about the proper deadlift grip? “In the real f***ing world, the object determines that for you.”

Things can be that simple sometimes.

You’ve been trained. Now, stop thinking so much. 

Pick. Up. The. Bar.

Put it down.
