Bands and chains have been made famous by Westside Barbell and with the strength results that they have achieved using them it triggered me to look deep into their methods and trial out using their systems on myself and some of the RF members
Due to the massive arguments and worldwide debates from strength coaches and the industry ‘authorities’ I had some doubts on if what Louie was teaching would be bullshit or not.
As with everything results ALWAYS beat theory.
I am lucky that I live chasing results rather than by trusting the experts who sit behind a laptop all day or in a commercial gym where they simply aren’t even allowed to play with chalk let alone chains and bands all over their bars.

I have struggled with this problem for my whole life where I will hit an achievement, a target, a goal, a milestone or whatever you want to call it and once I have hit that thing I have felt nothing.
I have hit these ideals that I wanted so bad and once I am there it is like I have just been told I stood in dog shit
You may have been through this too

It has hit me multiple times and every time it has felt like one of ‘Iron Mike’s’ famous power punches.
I had put in all of the work to get my body, my business, my relationships, my mindset and my social life all in check by hitting all of my targets and living the results that I chose to create.
In the growth to this space there was a heap of roadblocks
Lack of time

I’ll start with why I started, and the obvious, should you ever attend a competition; it’s fucking fun!!
Biased yes, but strongman training is the most fun way to get strong and turn into an animal!
Believe me. I think the thought of doing strongman for a ‘purpose’ never crossed my mind, I saw logs, tyres and farmers carries and just thought “OATH! Let me get in on that”.
Little did I realise the benefits it would give not only to my body, but more importantly my mind.
No matter what sport you’re in,

What is holding you back?
I see it all the time and it kills me inside
Whether it is not being able to lockout a deadlift due to not wanting to perfect form and build the back strength up or hearing a fully grown man say no to training because he can’t afford the training fees at Royale Fitness (which is less than the slab of beer that he is trying to cut back on anyway)
Priotity Needs To Be In Health and Success, Not Beer and Cars Or Football
What I am talking about is people who avoid their weak areas and who are pulling the blindfold over their eyes when it comes to the things that they don’t enjoy and aren’t that good at.
Let’s break this down so that you haven some context
The strength goals that you have will get capped out by whatever your weakest muscle that contributes to that lift is…

So, you want to bench more?
Shane Getting After it
The bench press is either seen as the best or the worst upper body lift in the strength and fitness world depending on who you talk to
What you will notice is that those who suck at it won’t do it and come up with 4000 reasons why it’s bad for your shoulders and why it shouldn’t be done blah blah blah, fact of the matter is that people want a bigger bench and there are saf(er) ways to get one
The main thing that I want to emphasize is that the bench like any lift is just a tool or weapon that we have access to, to get more jacked and less womanly.

This game of life can be a busy one
You always having to hustle your face off to keep your wife or girlfriend happy, your family happy, your clients happy and even the bloody tax man happy
So much shit to get done and so little time.
The first thing that I have done in the past and see ALL the time with the people inside my businesses is we cut out the things that make us great
We skip a few training sessions to catch up on a project
We skip out on meditation or floating because we ‘just don’t have the time’
We eat like shit
We even stop appreciating the ones we love
We literally stop growing as a person.
This NEEDS TO STOP
MY REVELATION in 2012
If I am not being or becoming the best version of myself, then my wife, my family, my clients and even the outsiders who just like to follow my stuff ALL SUFFER
I had this realization and since then I have studied, sought out, tested, created and built a series of daily and weekly non-negotiables that I will make sure are a part of my schedule
Here is the list below in no particular order
