This can’t happen, right? But it did!

A while back I wrote about the carry over from Mace Fit® training to barbell lifts, sled pushes, etc.

I think some people didn’t believe me or that I was making it up.

Facts rule at the Cave and written records are kept for verification.

I have found that there is in fact a good carry over.

This has been proven more than once during our quarterly strength & work capacity tests.

Just yesterday it happened again.

One of our athletes who has opted to do only Mace Fit® for the last couple of months

but he still did our strength tests.

He got a PR on the deadlift test.

He hasn’t deadlifted in quite a while.

So how is that possible?

One thing people fail to realize is how much strength work is done in Mace Fit®.

We do a lot of it!

The legs and back get hit hard with lots of lunges, squats, knee walkups, and isometrics.

Of course the rest of the body is getting strengthened too.

I have said many time that we don’t just swing maces in Mace Fit®

We build the whole body.
