A Problem For Crossfitters

The problem with cross fitter athletes from a weightlifting standpoint they are extremely unbalanced.  Their strengths are very strong, but they often also have even more glaring weak points. An athlete might have great strength, but very limited flexibility.  He or she might  have superb conditioning   but low strength levels.  This is a result of not having done weight lifting specific training.  Often this will take  a lot of patience for the athlete to overcome. This can be doubly frustrating to some because they are use to working hard and wining at things that are related to weight lifting.  It is difficult  to adopt the mind set of a beginner, but that is required if the athlete is going to even out there development and make it more conducive to weightlifting. Often an athlete is tempted to play to their strengths, and the things they are good at.   It takes a very devoted lifter with a great work ethic to do the hard work necessary to increase the total.   But if you take the time you will be rewarded.
