Athletes come to The Underground Strength Gym, more often than not, weaker than a 98 lb weakling, no joke.
My motivation is to get them strong as hell, and while doing so, I need to walk the talk and remain stronger.
You never know what must be done to represent.
On New Years, 1 of my athletes hit a 115 lb pull up weighing 240 lbs, I hit a 106 lb pull up weighing 220.
One of the young guns, a high school sophomore is addicted to The Underground - he wants to train all the time and always does extra work as he awaits his ride home (that is, if he's not running to the gym).
Let's see who wins....
Now, EVERY workout Pierce busts out a challenge at me.
Monday he challenged me to pull ups, so, I let him go first. I also added that I would wear a 20 lb chain. I did that for the mind games, ala Muhammad Ali 🙂
I hit 15 no problem, Pierce hit 10 🙂
Next year he might get me in something, so stay tuned!
PS: I'll be around during the day tomorrow, so if you have questions about The Underground Strength Gym Licensing Course, feel free to call me at the gym or e mail me.
