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”.

 

 

 

 

Combining basic strength-building exercises is a good alternative for circuit training. We did one at our Iron Brotherhood Mens Weightlifting Club yesterday.

We shared floor space with another business, but we still got the work done!
