In the Strength and Conditioning world, we talk an awful lot about physical strength. We factor our body weights and size and compare absolute strength vs relative strength and yammer endlessly about what matters more: technique or strength. If you have a great mile time, you poo poo the athlete dragging ass behind you and while you’re squatting houses you smirk at that wispy runner squatting weenie weight.
But, tied with physical strength is mental strength and we all know how imperative believing you can move the weight is for success. Perhaps the coolest thing about strength training is that we get to work on the outside and the inside at the same time. We all know that the battle is ultimately won within and that you have to have that iron mind full of self belief. Who knows more about strength and self belief than THE MAN,Arnold!
I want to introduce you to someone else who blows me away with her will to win. She is the embodiment of real strength and is the kind of woman that those goofy “Strong Mama” socks were made for. Our dear friend, Heather, is sharing her story with the world and you NEED to hear it. Her struggle and unwavering strength is fortitude at its finest. What a truly tremendous show of strength. Please check out her story, like her page, and share it with the world. She is taking strength to a WHOLE new level.
