DYEL Month: Do You Even...
Anyone who tells you strength doesn't matter in a fight either selling you something or is a damn liar. Weight classes in combat sports don't exist to make it easier to figure out who's going to eat the most hot wings at the Hooters afterparty; they exist because it takes an astronomical amount of skill superiority for a smaller guy to overcome the strength advantage that comes with having more pounds of muscle.
If you're not regularly lifting heavy things, you are, plain and simple, not doing everything you can to prepare for a fight. And if you're not preparing for a fight, then why the hell would you bother learning how to punch and choke people?
This month, Bullshido focuses on the fundamental movements necessary to increasing strength. We're also going to sing the praises of the strength prophet himself, Mark Ripptetoe (PBUH), and how his Starting Strength program will put you on the road to being your own goddamn power animal.
Do you even... you'd damn well better.
Use this space to post your favorite lifting videos, bask in the glory of men named Magnus, and discuss whatever it takes to get your ass under a heavy bar.
