What does it take to get stronger? In general terms, consistency first and foremost, then you have to pick up heavy things and set them down. I have had a few injuries in the past. Motorcycle accident requiring 2 different surgeries, low back injury, as well as normal aches and pains. I have been able to overcome each of those things with the right work and attention. My latest attempt was to clean and press this log with 200lbs on it. I was so close, but didn’t lock it out. So, I am focusing on getting stronger as well. I will get it and I am sure of that. Maybe tomorrow maybe next week. But soon!!!
