My Greatest Strength Feat


For those of you who don't know, my mother passed away this past June. Dealing with that loss for the past few months has been a walk in the park. Except it's a national forest park...with unmarked trails...at midnight.

Still, there are gifts that my mother has given me that transcend the barriers of life and death. She showed me what true empathy looks like, how to find joy in the toughest situations, and how to literally smile in the face of the Grim Reaper.

And while looking back on my life, I realize that my mom not only inspired my career...but she also gave me my greatest strength feat.

Please read along in the link below, and share the story to those who it will inspire most.


My Greatest Strength Feat


"The sound was deafening. A loud snap, like a crack of thunder, followed by 2 more in quick succession. Then there was the scream. Like nothing I’d ever heard before and I was shocked to realize it had come from me. Then there were pounding steps, blackness and then nothing.

I awoke feeling the clammy, cold sweat on my skin. Confused I tried to figure out what was going on, why was my brother here, what was he staring at? Then it hit me, a wave of excruciating pain and the sound rushed in to the room, and I realized what had happened.

While attempting a test of my leg strength, pressing over 2,850 lbs, a safety mechanism on the equipment I was using failed. A chain snapped and flew in to my left shin, shattering my tibia in three places. A weight plate crashed into that same leg. My body, unable to cope with the excruciating agony did the only sensible thing it could – I passed out." - Case Study on Isometrics

As a BONUS, I've included a free case study of one individual's case of losing 20.3lbs of body fat in a matter of 4 WEEKS. If I were you, I would check that out ASAP on the LFM blog page.

P.S. Did you know that Bruce Lee was an avid trainer of isometrics? He trained using a power rack in the style promoted by Bob Hoffman. Though that style is not the alpha and omega of isometric training, it developed the crazy tendon and ligament strength that enabled Bruce Lee to do the powerful things he performed with his small stature. If you want to learn an isometric style that goes beyond the depth of Bruce Lee's isometric exercises, check out the 7 Seconds to a Perfect Body link below.
