Last night I was at Shore Thing Wrestling Club.
The room was packed and as always, before I train guys, I give those who don’t want to do the work an out. I have NO desire to work with lazy athletes who are too arrogant or too lazy to train.
So, I tell them, if they have to get home because they are far away OR they don’t want to do the work, to leave. Nobody needs arrogant athletes or dead weight. It kills the energy of the room.
Yes, some have to get home and live far away, but I tell them that a short, 15 minutes of extra work is about to go down and the choice is theirs.
With no shame, many leave. They walk away.
The arrogant athletes are already too good. At least in their own head they’re too good.
They don’t need to be stronger or better. They’re already strong enough.
Imagine that? No need to improve? VERY Interesting. I could only imagine as I doubt I’ll ever be good enough at anything. There is always room to improve.
To kick off our training, I had one of our athletes demo most of the bodyweight exercises and as the group went through the training, our Underground trained Wrestler realized something very important……
