Lately I’ve been getting questions about to go about training for powerful back strength while improving shoulder stability. Since this has been a common thread I decided to pull this older article from the archives to publish up today for you.

Enjoy the read and post up your feedback in the comments section below.

1. What type of training are you currently doing to improve your back strength?

Do You Approach Strength As A Skill?

Do You Approach Strength As A Skill?

  1. When you walk into the gym do you walk in prepared? 
  2. When it comes to your pursuit of fitness do you recognize your needs? 
  3. Are you results oriented when it comes to your training? 

Do you approach and treat your pursuit of strength as a skill? If there is one pet peeve of mine it’s the ability of people to walk through most every endeavor in their life without purpose, or intent. If you want results in life you MUST be intentional with your approach. You must go on the attack with a laser beam focus.
