A tease for this week’s column on strength — strength earned in the gym that translates beyond the gym. Please check back Saturday, September 11 for the finished product. Here is an excerpt:
“I much more think of my weight-room as a theater where I practice gravity management, than as a place to just lift weights. To my way of thinking, the words which best relate to strength, in and out of the gym, are capacity, command, and concentration. I call them, The Three Cs Of Strength.
The three Cs at a glance:
Capacity = Weight; the poundage used in a strength exercise.
Command = Form; the manner in which the exercise is executed and managed.
Concentration = Intensity; the (psychological) limits an individual is willing to meet in order to complete an exercise in good form.”
Oh, and there is this epic theme song from the award winning movie, Pumping Iron.
Please check back this weekend for more. Thank you.
