Life Lessons From Powerlifting #1


Back in the day when I trained alongside Ed Coan at Quads Gym on Chicago’s south side, I learned many a lesson that still apply to many aspects of my life today.

Lesson #1: Stay focused and do what you say you’re going to do.

If your training schedule calls for you to lift a weight for X number of reps, it doesn’t matter if you vomit, bleed or ‘hershey squirt‘ in the middle of your set – you’ll still be respected if you complete your set.  You can always clean up your mess later.
