Gymchat 252 - The Power of Mental Strength (Dru Patrick)

Think about it.


UPDATE (9 Jul 2014) :

Unfortunately a connectivity issue got in the way of this one, so we've rescheduled it to Friday, 8pm Eastern (the Event page shows when that is in your timezone). Apologies for that.

How important is it to be mentally strong? Does it help you gain physical strength?

This week we'll be looking closely at the area of Mental Strength - explaining exactly what it is, how it impacts physical strength and how to go about acquiring some. Helping us tackle this fascinating area is Powerlifter Dru Patrick - Powerlifting Instructor at Crossfit Gulf Coast - together with Personal Trainer and Strength Athlete Josh Hewett. Fantastic.


NB : We'd love to hear your questions and comments. If there's a particular subject you'd like Dru and Josh to address, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat and leave a comment or jump in the Hangout and ask them directly.

And if you'd like to point your friends/colleagues to the discussion, just use the 'share' button at the top of that page. The more the merrier.
