When The Going Gets Tough…Ass Kickers Are Born
Has Life ever smacked you hard enough to drop you down to your knees?
And then kicked you in the teeth as were trying to collect your wits while wondering what the hell happened?
I am sure you know the feeling.
We all have. Life tests us on a daily basis.
It is an essential part of our existence.
And, the crux of the matter is – it’s hardship that brings out the best (or worst) in us.
Well, pretty much like Leg Day.
Leg Day (yes, it has its own capital letters) is a definite test of fortitude.
There is a unambiguous aura around training legs that no other bodypart seems to have.
Proper leg training tests you to the core, takes you to the very fringe of your limits…and destroys them.
Believe me, I make sure my leg workouts are a character builder.
When you are down to that last set, with your legs on fire threatening to just buckle under you and your mind is screaming at you to stop, it takes true grit to steel yourself, and position yourself under the bar for one last time.
And., with good coaching, grit like that can be translated into sheer forward impetus in Life.
Which is why the people who can do leg workouts with me are the ones with true fortitude of character.
As a coach, I don’t ask you to lift heavy weights.
I ask you to test yourself.
So when someone actually asks to join in my leg workouts, does it, and comes back for more – well, they have my full respect.
And this is a sincere BodyForge salute to these three guys.
I know I give you a tough time but you take the opportunity and own it like champions.
Which is, after all, what our Re-Invention program is all about.
It’s not about training.
It’s about furthering our own limits.
And becoming the best version of ourselves we can be.
I appreciate each and every one of you.
It is people like you who validate my efforts.
Who make things click.
Who make me jump out of bed every morning champing at the bit, relishing in pure joy at the opportunity to be able to change lives.
Yes, it’s people like you who are the reason I wanted to be a coach so many years ago.
Well, now that’s all said and done – who’s with me for legs next Tuesday?
