Great news: Our quarterly strength & work capacity tests will be tougher in 2020

These tests have been instrumental in helping our athletes making steady progress over the years.

We have ten different tests in all:

five barbell tests

two bodyweight tests

one steel mace test

one steel club test

one sled push test

The tests are conducted based on the records kept in the log book each athlete is required to have.

One part of the test is the 10 minute test, which has been done using 70% of each person’s 1RM.

In 2020, we will upgrade that to 80% instead.

We have a rep cap to keep things safe, but it will be a butt-kicker!

Just what you’d expect from the Cave.

I was the owner of the Cave, a strength-based, veteran-owned, unconventional coaching facility, which closed on May 31, 2022 after almost 12 years. My full focus is now on bringing our steelclub and mace training called Mace Fit out to the public. Follow us at and @2slingsteel.
