Life Lessons From Powerlifting #3

Lesson #3:  Surround yourself with people who have already accomplished what you want to do.

While I never broke any records on the lifting platform, I went from a sloppy 400lb squatter as a young 20-something while doing things on my own to a respectable 700# lifter in my mid-20s by training with guys who squatted as much as 300 pounds MORE than me (and at a lighter bodyweight, I should add) who’ve already ‘been there, done that’.

Experience is the best teacher.

(now that I’m creeping ever closer to 40, I’m still keep this lesson in mind every single day!)
