Mr. Gravity – Super Athlete


Use Gravity – Don’t abuse it

Defy it – But you can’t deny it

Enhance Gravity – Don’t chance it

Resist Gravity – It will persist

You can cheat Gravity, but it’s tough to beat it

Mr. Gravity is an athlete of amazing force that determines everything we do in training. To re-frame your thinking think of weight training as gravity enhancement, that is what you are doing. It is gravity that tears ACL’s and sprains ankles. The implications in training and injury prevention are vast and opportunities to make Mr. Gravity a friend are infinite. Use your imagination and creativity and you will be amazed at what you can do with Mr. Gravity if you get him on your team.
