Any athlete knows that the road to setting a record, even a personal one, is filled with a whole lot of sweat, soreness, and some failure. But the challenge, and especially the reward, is worth it.
This Saturday we’re sharing one such hard-earned personal record that a client at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning (MBSC) recently achieved.
In the video below, an ice hockey athlete, Elie DeCaprio, who trains at MBSC pushed her strength to the max by doing a Turkish Get-Up with a 36-kg kettlebell! That’s 79.3 lbs. lifted with one arm!
Check out the video below:
This Turkish Get-Up may not be the steadiest, but it’s still a show of strength, a personal record, and an achievement. And, in our experience, raw strength usually doesn’t look pretty or perfect—think about all that sweat and soreness.
Have you achieved any personal records lately? We’d love to hear, so tell us in the comments below!
