“Not less than 2 hours per day should be devoted to exercise and the weather should be of little regard. If the body be feeble the mind will not be strong” -Thomas Jefferson
-our workouts are just as much about building mental strength as physical. The physical advancements of the PAX sometimes overshadow our mental growth but this is just as much about metal toughness as physical. This is my pep talk to you PAX. If you are coming to these beatdown regularly and grinding through these workouts then to me you are the top 1%. As the top 1% you should be winning and expect to win at whatever you may be doing. Winning at work, home, the physical and mental. Winning overall. We are not “normal” men. We don’t desire to be average, we desire to be well above average. We have every right to be confident, to have some “swagger” in our steps. My ask for you PAX is that you own that swagger and confidence and put it in play. YHC
