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!
