Talk or Walk, Do or Don’t?

  I still remember that photo and poem on the wall in my old gym. It was dead center above the squat rack, the only squat rack in the gym. It was an OLD black & white photo of Tom Platz squatting, a photo I have never been able to find on the net or […]

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 […]

Life has a top 1% – You are Probably NOT in it!

Went to a wrestling club today and took them through some training. Spoke to them about winning and preparation at the end and they all said they wanted to win more than anything else. Yet they all do the same thing: go to a wrestling club, and wrestle. No dedicated off season / in season […]

What are YOU Waiting for?!?!?

Yesterday we had a crew of athletes training at The Underground, and one of our athletes brought his friend. His friend was just going to watch. I told him to jump in and test drive it, get a workout in. He responded, “Naaaaaaa, I’m tired”. I said to him, “Tired? Are you varisty? Do you […]

We are NOT created Equal

It’s funny, way too often people think that if they simply use the same equipment as a world class athlete does, they too will achieve world class status. Wrong.
