One phrase, “Strength builds confidence.” Powerlifting allows me to continue to learn and grow every single day. It gives me an opportunity to build confidence, surprise myself through strength, and push my mental capacity beyond its limits. For me, this provides as much fulfillment as my family and my career. We all need our own thing. That thing that drives us, that gives us a reason to wake up in the morning and get excited about the day. For me that is Powerlifting.
Is that to say other avenues can’t do the same for you – of course not. Some love running (not me personally), some love crossfit, some love kickboxing, some love dancing, and some love bodybuilding. Whatever it is – don’t do it because you feel like you have to in order to be fit. Do it because you love it and use your resources to give it your all. Consistency and effort is going to determine how far you go. Can you love and do more than one? Of course – but determine your goals and use avenues to help to get there. Too much of everything is not effective.

Happy Friday, Happy Lifting, Keep raising the bar!
