E151 | The Mental Game of Weightlifting with Phil Sabatini

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.
