1001x3 squat today. Despite all the uncertainty in the world and our lives right now, I set out on a clear and defined path 4 years ago. A path to do something epic, to inspire, and to raise money and build awareness for causes I believe in. It was a major battle for me in the last year to pull off the last portion of this goal. With where my body, mind, and health are...there was no way of repeating this training cycle again after current events pass. It was now or never. With the original event at IHRSA in San Diego shutdown along with everything else, we adapted to the changing circumstances. I was going to finish what I said I was going to do. Commitment, perseverance, victory. It’s how I live my life and hope to inspire in others. If you are going to talk the talk, you must walk the walk or your words are no different than the sound of the wind. Words can’t accurately convey how challenging this training was mentally, physically, or emotionally...but I can say I’m proud to have finished things on my own terms. Yeah, it’s not recorded in any record books anywhere, but I don’t give a rat’s ass... my goal was to be the first person to deadlift and squat 1000+lbs for reps. I did it, and no one can take that away. DONE
