warrior’s intent in training

What really drives you to train?

Is getting leaner and stronger an end in itself or is there something more?

Everyone wants to look good and feel good, that’s a given.

That’s often not enough though.

During my martial arts and military years the focus was on effectiveness against an enemy/attacker.

The main thing was performance when it really mattered.

Whether it was a street attack in the civilian world or an ambush in the military you had to win right then.

You couldn’t do it over.

As I created the Mace Fit program these things were in the back of my mind.

I see maces and clubs as weapons not just fitness tools.

The intent of a warrior is built into each movement.

I do not use the term “warrior” lightly.

Many people throw it around and claim the title of warrior who have never faced a deadly situation in there entire life.

To me a warrior is always prepared for battle, real physical battle, not just winning a ball game.

The Cave Strong program also is built with warrior’s intent.

Stay ready and you won’t have to get ready.

Are you strong enough to defend your loved ones?

Could you carry a wounded or injured person if you had to?

Could you hold on to something for a long time if your life depended on it?

Could you lift a heavy objects repeatedly to rescue a person buried in rubble?

The world we live in is a dangerous place.

Train like your life depended on it, because it might one day.

Just a few thoughts to start the week off with,
