Stripes or Meatballs?
Twizzlers or Redvines?
French Queen or Scottish Peasant Girl?
The world can be divided into two groups. Which are you? Bill Murray in Stripes, or Bill Murray in Meatballs? It's really rather simple. I am a Redvines guy, so is my wife. Everyone else can sod off. But you get the point. How you answer one simple question really ends up putting you into one camp or another.
On to the point.
We are asked on a consistent basis, "What do you do when it rains?"
People are shocked to discover that we still train, outdoors (we do have 1200 square feet of canopy for crying out loud), in the rain, in the wind. Nothing changes, except that sometimes we do fewer burpbees (sometimes).
And, at the instant that we respond, "We Frakking do high-rep Olympic lifting, what do you do?" That person drops into one camp or another. They either totally get it and see the advantages of always being outside under the beautiful bridge while performing training that actually reflects real world conditions. Or, they don't get it. At all.
They look at us like we've got a third eye (which we do, we ARE good coaches).
And at that moment we know pretty know all we need to ever know about that person.
SFCF isn't right for everyone. It's just right for us.
Well, which are you, Stripes or Meatballs?
