Thank you to #football #coaches for your questions last week about how to motivate student-athletes in the weight room, from scratch to high-level strength-building. Here’s part 1 of the answer. It’s the starting point, #TheBase foundation that guarantees a wildly-driven team that will never be out-lifted or outworked. Guaranteed.
My poor illiterate #Italian immigrant father Antonio should have written a #book but he couldn’t write in English or Italian or in any language. And he couldn’t read English or Italian or any language. He spoke his own language – dual meaning:
1. Broken Italian and broken English. Neither is recognized by Google Translation.
His qualification to write a book was that he was the toughest, hardest working human I’ve ever met, witnessed, worked with anywhere. Second place isn’t even close. Antonio was uneducated but he knew the secrets of #motivation, #lifting heavy weight, beating unimaginable adversity, and outworking your competition anywhere.
Antonio’s secret was not a secret when he was alive. It was common knowledge when he was alive. Now, it has become a secret in PMS – Post-Modern Society – a society that is searching for secrets and whys when the answer is right in front of their eyes. Antonio’s secret transformed every football team I have every coached in a level of Football Poverty that 98.6% will never, ever coach in because of no-pay and the prerequisite extreme heavy lifting – dual meaning – need to build peak mind-body-soul strength of every athlete and build a Extreme Lifting Culture that allows The Poor to beat The Rich.
Antonio wasn’t a #motivationalspeaker. He was a Motivational Worker. Watching him work ignited your #soul on fire. He didn’t need #YouTube or #IBS – #Internet BullShit – to work like a #BeastOfBurden.
Because he was too illiterate to write a book, I’m doing it for him. I just finished book #63 last night. That’s just a warm-up.
One of the books I’ve written, #Soulofalifter, is free to all X Fitness members. The book will change your life because what I learned from Antonio changed mine. You will lift more – dual meaning. Guaranteed.
