Someone asked me today what I learned from the Tampa Bay Strongman Classic this weekend.

Simple, it takes guts!

You see it wasn’t about learning a better technique or strategy.

It was about how the competitors reacted when they missed a heavy lift or fell down while giving their utmost.

They immediately got back up and attacked the task again.

No moaning or excuse-making or even seeing if they were hurt or not.

They just shook it off, grabbed it and charged full speed ahead again!

 

Lots of heart and determination was shown by the gals today at this excellent event!

20161201_184815Training after a long day at work takes extra discipline, but it is worth it!

Life is unpredictable, at best, you never know what you might be facing that day when you get up in the morning. I believe that our training should build a well-rounded readiness for any situation.

If someone were to ask how we train at the Cave, for instance, “Do you do Powerlifting or Olympic Weightlifting?”, the answer is yes. It’s not one or the other.

Whether it’s CrossFit or Strongman or Underground Strength, or PowerX, the answer is yes, once again.

Do we prefer barbells, dumbbells,  kettlebells, sandbags, kegs, stones, logs, bands, chains, sleds, or bodyweight? The answer is still yes.

Bruce Lee said, “If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them”.
