How to get your A** Kicked

This kid grew up in Pennsylvania, most of his life he worked for his Dad doing manual labor and then when he snagged a job of his own it was manual labor.

Digging ditches, moving stones, carrying bags of who knows what – he never lifted weights, at least not the kind of weights you would find in a gym.

His dad owned a barn and in that barn was a 20 ft. climbing rope.

At age 7 he was already climbing the rope and by the time high school came around he was climbing that rope 5, 6 or 7 times throughout the day. No legs were used, all upper body.

When he wrestled others his physical strengths were overbearing to his opponents. Noone ever felt such strength and stamina and he literally took the energy right out of his opponents, that’s how dominating he was.

By the time he was in his 30’s he still did the same style of “workout” – lots of stone lifting, rope climbing, truck pushing and playground workouts – pull ups mainly, but also jumping onto and over benches and picnic tables.

My buddy and I wrestled this guy when we were in high school and he was in his mid 30’s

We thought he was an old man, washed up, after all, he was twice our age, right?

We got our a**es kicked, and handed to us.

He did something right!

Until the next time,

Train smart and train hard!
