Very proud of these two for stepping up and crushing they heavy sandbag today. Blake and Dylan are very consistent with their attendance AND effort. Showing up is NOT enough. You can't just go through the motions and expect big results. #Work
This isn't a big deal for most people. Squatting isn't the movement that gives most people the hardest time. I've been fighting for four years to squat correctly. My fucked up knee and back have made every squat session a fight. It's not a big deal for most people, but today is a big fucking deal for me. This is the best bottom position I've ever had on a squat. And I'm doing this CONSISTENTLY nowadays and with zero knee pain during my sessions. I cannot express how happy and proud I am of this improvement. I cannot tell you what kind of relief it is to be able to do what I love without pain and to finally enjoy squatting, instead of dreading it. Fuck you to everyone that said I just shouldn't squat. Fuck you to everyone that just said "that looked terrible" and walked away. Fuck you to the people that have heard what my goals are and told me "there's no way" or "don't waste your time." Or even laughed them away. Fuck you to the dickheads at the YMCA that used to laugh at the overweight kid in the corner trying his best and wishing he could do better. You all used to call me "fatass." Fuck you. Where are you? Because I'm right here. I'm not big on bravado, but you better be fucking ready. I'm not the strongest by any measure. I'm not the fastest by any clock. But I'll be damned if I won't work as hard as any other motherfucker around. Move that fuckin' dirt. Pay the fuckin' man. Let's fuckin' go. #fuckmediocrity#movethedirt#duespaid#squat#powerathlete#getyourmindright#HWPO@powerathletehq@paythemanofficial#attitudenation#thedarkorchestra#loveyourlifeorchangeit@attitudenation@thedarkorchestra
Someone tried to tell me selective hearing is a bad thing, but I stopped listening.
Criticism, coaching, advice, and input are valuable; bullshit is not, even the bullshit we like to hear. Don't be distracted by the noise. "Absorb what is useful. Discard what is not. Add what is uniquely your own" #movethedirt
