Make the choice if you are going to consistent or not? If you want something bad enough, be consistently Great.
How Strong is Strong Enough is a typical question strength and conditioning coaches ask themselves and each other. How strong is strong enough and what is the minimum standards. How do we know?
I’ve been a strength and conditioning coach for 12+ years now and have seen some very strong people and have devised the following strength standards for males and females. These are goals for our athletes and are good standards for the level of athlete that I see…not freak athletes by any means.
Enjoy and hope this helps

It’s tough to find a strength training exercise that can deliver more awesome benefits than the deadlift. Deadlifting variations are a HUGE part of our programs. They can be extremely beneficial but unfortunately, a lot of people perform the lift with incorrect technique – and it’s often due to the fact that they don’t consider what their posture is before initiating the lift. Luckily, today, Eric Cressey has a great video in place that’ll teach you how to overcome this common mistake.
In addition to coaching loads of athletes on the deadlift on a daily basis, Eric has a deadlift of more than 3.5 times his body weight – so he’s a good one to take us through this.
While you’re there, be sure to check out the two videos he posted earlier this week,
too; they’re both really well done.
