Calm Down… It’s Supposed to Feel Heavy

One of the most common reasons for lifters missing their heaviest snatch and clean attempts is the blow to their confidence experienced as the bar is first lifted from the floor.

The logic itself is sound—if you can’t move a weight fast enough, you can’t snatch or clean it.
