Stay in the box


Maybe Lynyrd Skynyrd is right, be a Simple Man. As I have grown older and hopefully wiser, I have grown simpler with my thoughts on training. I used to be WOWed by various sites and exercises thinking I should include this and that in my training. Now, I have learned to sift through the sea of bull that floats around. If a company or person is promoting that they know the secret and their training is outside the box. Most likely, their secret is a bunch of hoopla, yes hoopla, and isn’t worth the price of the elastic band they claim is MAGIC! If I learned one thing after listening to Boo for a week this summer, there isn’t any magic out there. Those that promote the magic and market the hell out of their idea, are in it for the money. Stick with the simple and stick with your coaches.
