I’ve been very fortunate in my career to have trained a variety of different athletes. When it comes to being able to compete and to get to the next level the only thing that separates the good from the great is doing just a little bit more. Of course in terms of training, fitness, and physical competition this is a challenge when you think your heart is going to beat out of your chest. It is without question the proverbial kick to the balls and it is what us strength coaches refer to as Physical Work Capacity.
So I haven’t had a chance to get this up until this week, but the past couple weeks have been very interesting. I’ve had my hands full with a couple new projects and I was able to witness something pretty incredible from a good friend of mine back on Saturday, September 16th 2017. For today’s post I’m going to elaborate on that day’s event.
When Achilles was a little baby his mother dipped him into a river of magic in order to protect him from the world. It worked because Achilles could not be harmed except on the one heel that his mother neglected to submerge in the water because of where she held him when she dipped him into the water.
If you’ve been following my social media for any length of time you’ve probably noticed that I frequently point out certain distractions that the general public engages in way too much in this day and age. These distractions are specific behaviors that have without a doubt dumbed down the general population and may very well be killing everyone’s gains!
Being in the fitness business now for over 15 years I can tell you that it’s one tough industry. There is no doubt that to succeed in this industry an individual must grind and be willing to accept the fact that they are going to have to do a lot of things that are uncomfortable in order to succeed. This is so true in this industry and it certainly makes for a greater metaphor for running a business in this particular industry. Today I’m going to talk about three different kettlebell drills that may cause a little discomfort, but yield great results.
