Powerlifting & Strongman–two very important parts of our training

I was thinking the other day about the things that have been the greatest help to me in my own training and the training I have others do here at the Cave.

While I am a big believer in tough bodyweight training, being able to interact with and learn from Powerlifters and Strongmen both in person and  online has been a huge asset to me.

I remember my football coaches always thinking I was too small to be effective in the line. even though I would go head-to-head with their biggest players and make a decent showing time and again.

Over time I moved away from team sports to martial arts, where my size didn’t matter. In fact, being on a team didn’t matter either during those years.

Eventually I started focusing more on strength training and my passion for it grew and grew over the years!

I just wanted to make my five foot six inch self as strong as possible. It’s okay to be a “runt” you can’t make yourself any taller; just don’t be a wuss if you are small. Be a strong runt!

This where Powerlifting and Strongman training have really helped me. I found out these ways of training really do make a person strong, big or small, guy or gal, the results are there if you attack the weights relentlessly!

If you don’t already use these training methods, find a good coach and get started.

Much respect to all the Powerlifters and Strongmen out there! You guys and gals rock!
