deadlifts & pullups?

It’s almost Monday!

We are blessed to have another week to get stronger!

In 2017 I parted ways with the world’s largest fitness organization

to develop and expand my own fitness system called Mace Fit.

I had been with them for 12 years through the good, the bad, and the ugly.

However, I learned a lot along the way.

There were many things I disagreed with, but they had some things they did very well.

One thing that really got my attention was their focus on balanced strength.

I still believe in that, since people can limit their overall athleticism by being too specialized.

So if you have a huge deadlift but struggle to do pullups you might want to round things out a bit.

I like to do deadlifts and pullups in the same training session.

Other times I will do heavy pull overs with a steel club and dips.

Don’t sabotage yourself by being too narrow in your training.

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.
