Hey guys! Hey guys! I found a weightlifting meet in Denison, IA (I think it’s an hour-ish drive from here) on June 28th. It is USAW, and I know there are a few others from Omaha that are doing it. I think it’s a little smaller, so it would be perfect for a first meet for all of you. I don’t believe it is quite yet listed on the USAW website, but I will be contacting a few people to try to get more details.We can chat more about it in class, but let me know if you’d like to do it!


In pro tennis, players are only allowed 25 seconds between the end of one point and the start of the next.

What happens in these brief breaks typically has a lot to do with the results of the match.

What can you learn from this rule?

Excessive stress isn’t good for anyone. You want to be able to quickly spring back after sensing frustration or annoyance (especially in a WOD).

How quickly you can respond to challenges that arise often determines how well you perform.

When you begin to feel set back, thrown off, pissed, frustrated, or annoyed…you can

  • sulk, moan and complain
  • beat yourself up for errors


  • quickly figure out what you can do to improve your situation

In a competitive or high-stress environment, you have limited time to deal with shit.

Stay calm, stay positive, and stay proactive, so that you can be your best.
