Some say, “I only compete against myself,” and that is cool; however if they don’t keep a training journal they are lying.

How do they know if they are making progress or not?

My current training journal spans over a decade. I know from it what works best for me.

Everyone who trains at the Cave is required to keep a hard copy training journal. That means an old-fashioned notebook and a pen; no one is allowed to use their phone for this.

Each quarter we do nine tests:

  • 5 barbell tests
  • 2 bodyweight tests
  • 1 steel mace test
  • 1 steel club test

Note: We use Adex maces & clubs since they are the  best I have found

Each athlete’s test is individualized based on their training journal.

This strategy has shown continuous improvement, even for our most advanced athletes.

So get your training journal and get serious about making progress!
