Where would you rather be uncomfortable?
Here in training or under the bright lights of competition/life?
Uncomfortable isn't a choice, but where you experience it is. Life will always be difficult somewhere. Hard isn't a choice, but where you experience it is.
Holding ourselves to a hard standard in the gym forces you to FEEL difficult to FEEL impossible. WHY do we push so hard in the gym? Why do we make you feel uncomfortable? Wouldn't it just be easier to post long slow distance workouts and stay in the "fat burning zone" on the elliptical? YES, it would be easier, but WE DON'T WANT EASY. Easy means nothing. When difficulty arises in life (and it will) HUMANS never rise to the occasion. They merely fall to their lowest level of training. You want/we want that lowest level of training to be hard. We want that lowest level to be perfect, so that you can walk through life's difficulties with relative ease. Train hard in the dark, to shine the brightest in the light!!!!
