“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it” – Lena Horne
Sometimes the heavy burdens of life seem, well, heavy. But we hold our heads high, shoulders back, straighten our stance and carry on.
It is essential for growth and success.
The proven benefits of regular exercise are numerous. One of the most important is that of clearing the mind. Once you get the heart rate up and endorphins going the worries of life seem to fly right out of the head, (at least for the time being) and you are free to think about whatever it is you want to think about.
I’ve always said I do some of my best brainstorming while walking.
There are always going to be stressors of some kind. But it’s how we handle them that matters.
A staple in any strength training routine is “The Mighty Squat”, a serious compound movement exercise requiring laser focus and multiple muscle groups. It requires a strong stance, shoulders back, and a determination like no other.
Whether it be in the squat rack or in life, proper form is key.
