Strength Leaks

I am sure you have heard this many times too, “Wow! I didn’t think I lost that much strength!”,

when someone has been gone from training for a while then returns.

My question is, why are they surprised?

What happens to your car when you take your foot off the gas pedal while you’re driving?

While I am not opposed to someone taking a little time off periodically, chronically laying out of training

never helps. A person will always be weaker when they do that; and they will probably have gained some fat also.

Their strength has “leaked out”.

Going back to square one over and over again is very frustrating for all involved, in fact, I will not let a person train at the Cave who does that.

Be all in all the time if you want to make progress!

  1. Thanks for that exhortation. It is frustrating to find you have so much catch-up to do. This exhortation to make training a commitment will stay fresh in my mind into 2017.
