Most important for me is the training menu and the instruction given by my coach, Irving. With the training menu, I can easily figure out and focus on nearest goal in every session. And Irving’s instructions always guide me to the goal in efficient and safe way.
It’s neither pain nor injury but something was wrong and put inner limit in my mind. I have been feeling like this for these several years. And I almost convinced myself that it’s quite natural to have such feeling for my ages, (I just turned fifty years old.) My biggest concern was how to keep my condition well and healthy with minimal effort not only for sports activities but also for my daily life. But more I stick to my comfortable zone, more my inner limit bothers me and less confident I feel for everything. When I reached the web site of The Pit and got to know the concept of “Strength before Conditioning”, I realized that I have nothing to “keep” but must gain what I lost as aging. Then I decided to open the door of The Pit but thought if the gym was packed with massive, scary “muscle guys”, I can quit anytime. Eventually it was NOT so big deal. The gym is always filled with friendly vibe (sometimes with funny jokes‚Ä¶). It’s really fun and I always enjoy my regular strength training session every week. Most important for me is the training menu and the instruction given by my coach, Irving. With the training menu, I can easily figure out and focus on nearest goal in every session. And Irving’s instructions always guide me to the goal in efficient and safe way. Recently what I feel about my limit is it always stays in my mind and never go away. But with certain goals designed for each person and the instructions given by skilled coach, the limit can be a target to challenge. I can improve my strength step by step and establish stable base in mind as well as in my body. And I can visualize my limit and figure out how to cope with it. Upon closing let me share my favorite tool I learned at The Pit which I say to myself like a mantra not only for lifting barbell but also tackling with problem in my work or daily life.
