Don’t limit yourself

One of my favorite mentors, Zach Even-Esh says, “I won’t discriminate against anything that will make me stronger!”.

I agree 100%!

Here at the Cave we continuously strive to bring you the very best training we possibly can.  We learn from the best coaches/athletes,  around so we can help you achieve your goals. Our unconventional training involves maces, clubs, sandbags, kettlebells, kegs, stones, bands and more.

The Cave is also the birthplace of macefit.com which is one of our most popular  classes.

Some say, “I only compete against myself,” and that is cool; however if they don’t keep a training journal they are lying.

How do they know if they are making progress or not?

My current training journal spans over a decade. I know from it what works best for me.

Everyone who trains at the Cave is required to keep a hard copy training journal. That means an old-fashioned notebook and a pen; no one is allowed to use their phone for this.

Each quarter we do nine tests:

  • 5 barbell tests
  • 2 bodyweight tests
  • 1 steel mace test
  • 1 steel club test

Note: We use Adex maces & clubs since they are the  best I have found

Each athlete’s test is individualized based on their training journal.

This strategy has shown continuous improvement, even for our most advanced athletes.

So get your training journal and get serious about making progress!
