You say it, but do you Do it?

You say you want to win, but do you do everything possible that allows you the extra edge & the unfair advantage that puts you in place to win and become better than everyone else. How can you win when you don’t do the extra little things that add up to BIG wins? I look back […]

Eye of the tiger – do you REALLY have it?

So, you say you want to win and be the best, but are you doing what it takes to become the best? Do you train smarter, not just harder? Do you make excuses for your poor eating, such as: “I woke up late” “I’m too tired” “I don’t have time” You either have the eye […]

I Question What Athletes are Doing

I will simply be up front about this because I am very disappointed in what I see lately. Athletic Coaches are training their athletes in the weight room and the results are poor at best most of the time (notice I did not say “all the time”). Our new athletes must go through a baseline […]

This School & their athletes will Pay the Price, VERY Sad!

When I first opened my Underground Strength Gym I began the planning for my fundraiser which was motivated and inspired by my homeboy, Alwyn Cosgrove. I sent invites to compete in this strongman fundraiser to surrounding schools. It was 3 other schools in addition to the one school where I had many Football players. I […]

SERIOUS Wrestlers in Training…FINALLY :)

Yesterday I spent 30 minutes with the South Plainfield Wrestling Club training them with some Underground bodyweight and partner drills. It was refreshing to be around an entire crew of motivated wrestlers. Yep, I’m still disgusted with the ENTIRE team that doesn’t even take advantage of 2 FREE weeks of Underground training. There were 5 year […]
