Pavel Tsatsouline /Pa-vel Sat-so-leen/

“If you think you are only strong if you can lift a certain number, whatever that number is, you will feel pretty weak most of the time. Strength is not a data point; it’s not a number. It’s an attitude.”

“If you are wondering what ‘strong’ is, it is probably not you.”

“Strength is a skill, and, as such, it must be practiced.”

“If you’re training for strength, you want to try and avoid the burn altogether. The burn is your enemy.”

“Training is something that should be enjoyed.”
