Yesterday I trained a baseball team.
I had a short amount of time, so we rocked out lots of bodyweight training and then we spoke about the advantages of strength:
- increased speed / power
- reduces injuries
- reduces chances of overuse injuries
- improves conditioning & work capacity
- improves mental toughness
The list goes on and on.
Now, if you were a serious athlete, coach or parent, you would do anything you could to get an advantage over your competition, right?
Well, one kid said, "I'm just not into weights."
Think about it.
I went to a baseball club, not a team that just anyonce can join... this is a team, hand picked after try outs and applications.
Here is a "serious" kid who isn't into lifting weights.

So, here's a kid who said he wants to play in college, wants to get a scholarship and even go to the majors.
Yet, "I'm not into weights."
Translated into "our" language:
"I'm NOT into Winning."
he truly doesn't want to win.
What are your thoughts?
PS: for those into winning, here is my home study course, you'll kill it with this bad boy:
