The Roads to Rome


Many people talk about many ways to skin a cat or in this case, many roads lead to Rome. Why does the conversation end there? For me, I find it strange that people talk about Rome when they have never gone in the first place. In the movie Gladiator, Maximus boldly claimed that Rome is the light, but Marcus Aurelius quickly reminds him that he has not been there. I think of that when I see about many methods in training, especially shortcuts. I think the lesson here is that the long way is more sure and less likely to be troublesome. Development takes time, and if you get there, the map you just made is a path that is based on reality and not rumors. The ASCA Gold Medal Clinic has shown clear paths to Rome for years, and it’s time to get back to history. I suggest the book Another Hurdle by David Hemery as it’s a good read and has his workouts written in plain english.
