Crossfit 46 Week 6

August 19, 2016

Here is some inspiration going into next week. I am a big fan of female weightlifting, because the weight these girls throw around is enough to hopefully make any chauvinist sweaty in his loafers. 

But, these weightlifting girls also have to deal with a lot of negative attention because they often don't look like female athletes are "supposed to look". Especially the lifters in the heavier weight classes, because to a lot of people who don't know any better, these girls don't look athletic. The speed, power, flexibility, and accuracy demonstrated by the lifters in the top weight classes is truly insane, and their looks shouldn't come under scrutiny. But, I am most likely preaching to the choir, if you are at a Crossfit gym. 


An instagram post by one of these athletes, Sarah Robles of USA, made me want to slam an extra coffee this morning, and go for a Snatch PR in my jeans with no warmup. (Please don't do that)

Here it is. The caption below read: 

You want to have this moment?
People calling you a cheat?
Battle back
Getting bullied for being fat?
Battle back
Battle back
Battle back
No money?
Battle back
No coach?
Battle back
No place to train?
Battle back
Bombed out at your last meet?
Battle back
Being told you didn't earn it?
Battle back

"It's been a long, tough, journey but, I battled my way back. The best performance of my life! Three personal records, made all of my lifts, got closer to the American and Pan American Records, became one of only three American women to earn a medal at the Olympic Games and showed people that it can be done! iSi se suede!"


Now get out there and get some!
