Today, the 3PP reopened. Indoors. The TRX hung from the ceiling, begging to bring the pain. The beam and bars called our name. There were only four of us. Two young athletes. Two old men. Did. Not. Matter. It felt great to get back after it and let the bar and TRX kick my ASS. They did not disappoint.
It’s been great working the core outdoors. It’s been challenging but not nearly as challenging as the relentless demands of the bar, beam, or TRX. Today, we crushed our cores. We got uncomfortable with a couple athletes and a couple old dudes. It had been far too long since we got after it in the cement block, cement floor, and uncomfortable confines that are the 3PP.
Today, during practice 5 with a team that’s just learning to come together, we got after CORE work of another kind. We introduced them to their figurative, transverse abdominus – their worldview. We told them there’s never time to build within, so build it now anyway. We pushed them into the hard stuff and they responded quite well. Kinda like Regina today they did not shy away from getting uncomfortable. They embraced it.
Your greatest leadership challenge is not out there, friend. Your greatest leadership challenge is always in here – the challenge of leading self. Want a better team? Become a better leader. Build a more resilient CORE. Are you?
Live hard. Love harder…
