A Deeper Understanding of Strength…

No, it’s not the 1 Rep Max…it’s beyond the set, beyond a single session, but something which sits right at the heart of the journey.

In The Daily Stoic, Ryan Holiday offers us a great insight into Seneca’s teaching of being tested and understanding our own capacity and inner strength.

Within that it unpicks the notion of facing difficulty and as a result discovering what capacity and strength that lies within. BUT how would you have known that without experiencing the difficulties, the set backs, the bumps in the road?

This is also helping me prepare ahead, do we know the full extent of what we are capable of now? Probably not, we have had challenges, we will have more. I’ve been trying more recently to take in those moments that were difficult and learn a little more each time.

We may not know full extent of our resilience yet, but my word we have it! Stay safe, my friends, you’ve got this!!

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
