What I Learned From Nearly Dying In CrossFit

     Watch the Video! "All I Need" by Blake Brandes (Motivational Blog Rap #47)

I thought I was doing great during the Monday CrossFit workout. 

I had just bench-pressed 125 pounds, which isn’t a lot for many people but was good progress for me. 

The two guys I was lifting with felt good about going up in weight, so we put another 20 pounds on the bar. 

As I lifted the bar off the rack and watched it lower toward me, I suddenly realized that I was going to need a lot more strength to get it back up. 

I dug in my heels, and as I tried to use my whole body to get the bar back up, my right foot slipped.
