You Need Strength

By Bo Hickey, Ritter Sports Performance, 06/12/18, 12:00PM CDT


In our youth, strength opportunity comes a little more naturally. As adults, we become really good at excuses and almost begin to fear being strong. 

I’m going to hit you with some tough love today. You need strength.  Now I’m not saying you need to be strong like 100 Spartans. I’m not saying you need to deadlift a house. However, you need to strive for strength. It will not only impact your performance but it will enable your life. 

Here’s my next bit of tough love. Strength is not maximized in the pool. Recently, I wrote a blog post for US Masters Swimming on why you can get faster with age.The response was mind blowing.
