Re: PR Thread

I've struggled with doing two movements not out of lack of strength or ability, but out of fear. But I conquered two in the last couple of weeks: unassisted handstand push-ups and rope climb. I always had a fear of crashing through the wall (yeah, right, like I could knock a cinder block wall down!) and with the rope, it was fear of falling. Even as a coach, I always had to have someone help me get up on the wall to demonstrate handstand push-ups because of my fear. But now I have them down pat and don't worry. And the rope climb, I just had to push past that mental barrier of falling and know I was strong enough to get to the top without falling off the rope. I stood and stared at that darn thing for probably 30 minutes while alone at the gym one day and finally just did it.
