Strength Notes

Posted on March 17, 2010. Filed under: Performance, Strength | Tags: , |

Developing Strength is merely the uncovering of what we are truly made of, not something we build up. The Law of Conservation of energy states: “…that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only be transformed from one state to another.”

If you take out energy and substitute strength, we basically get a law for strength, as well. You don’t “lose it,” you change it to something that you need. Instead of absolute strength, you become an expression of what you do everyday.

Sitting. Office Work. Life.

Well if your life has little or no movement – walking to your car, to the store, and back to your car, than what does?

Well we can either do a lot of a lot (change the balance of sitting to training), or find something optimal that impacts your body faster?

Always think can I uncover it faster with good skill/technique and do enough of it to make my body adapt for the better?  Or you can become an endurer. A person capable of torturing yourself for long periods of Little to NO movement.

You can be the Sloth my friend, or be the Shark, What will you choose?

Daryl, when I first started having tics I was 6 years old. My dad always knew just what to say. He said, “There are sharks that can’t breathe if they quit moving. That’s going to be you. You can’t quit moving, but you’ll always be making progress while other people lie on the couch.”

I didn’t get it then, but I do know. Shark, absolutely. but not a nurse shark. Great post.

Thanks very much. Congrats on the “special PR’s.” There’s too much that can’t be explained that somehow movement seems to help. Oh the joy.
