On Episode 151 of the Doc and Jock Podcast Coach Joe sits down with the pride of Pittsburgh, Phil Sabatini, to talk about the mental game of weightlifting.


Are you a lifter that regularly misses lifts because their head isn't fully in the game? A strong mental game is the backbone for success on the platform, during a WOD or even when you are in a presenting in a meeting.


On this Episode world class lifter Phil Sabatini talks about



  • How to relax the mind before a meet

  • How to not "actively think" about errors

  • How to use cues as a positive action

  • Why you shouldn't be listening to music before you perform


After that the fellas talk about blacking out under the barbell.


Hopefully this helps all you lifters & crossfitters remember that if you have a body you're an athlete.
