A quick note on what #discoverydeadlift is about. Pic 1 was taken 10 years ago in Seattle with my wife. I played basketball and ran on treadmills but rarely, if ever picked up a weight.
About 4 years ago I decided to get serious about strength training and have worked hard at it almost everyday since. About 2.5 years ago I attempted my first deadlift. It was in a word, ugly. My feet placement was somewhere in between a sumo and a conventional pull. My back arched terribly. The weight was juvenile. Still, I fell in love with the lift and continued to work at it.
Pic 2 was taken sometime late last year. I closed out 2019 with a 625 pound pull and have set a goal to hit 700 in the near future. The point, if there is one, is that consistent and dedicated work produces results. Not just physically , but mentally/emotionally. And that is what Discovery Deadlift is about. Doing hard things. Self work. Connecting with your surroundings and community. Getting out and getting clear.
I’m pumped by the early support and encouragement ya’ll have given me. Here’s to seeing more, lifting more, and being more. 🍻
