The CrossFit Dilemma:

Why Can’t I Lift More Than THAT Person?

 

Many athletes may wonder why they are not able to lift more than the person next to them. This is especially true of males, and this can be a sore subject among men in the CrossFit world. Many men, and to a lesser extent women, that I have spoken to felt self-conscious if there was a workout that had a particularly heavy load that they themselves did not have the ability to lift, but other athletes present could. Some have even admitted to lifting the weight even though they knew the load was too heavy, all because those around them were lifting the load. This, of course, eventually led to injury or intense soreness in the aftermath of the workout.

 

I want to shed some light about different body types, why some people can lift more weight than others, and how some people are more inclined to endurance work then others. Everyone is keen to a body type, but it’s important to program and work with your genetic musculature to make strength gains.
