In the absence or presence of any experience, your core values will always be there.
I believe it is the core value of a person who is able to push forward under pain and stress.
It is the core value of a person to realize the truth of failure and then ascend to even greater heights.
It is the core value of a person to commit to their goals and hold themselves accountable.
For strength trainers, the core value manifests physically
You feel more powerful as the body realizes greater potential. The changes can be found in the tendons, ligaments, muscular elements, mineralization of bone, endocrine efficiency improvements, and energy systems adaptation. There is little vanity in seeking to become a better version of yourself.
Lessons learned from intense training should carryover to mental toughness
We push ourselves in the gym not because we are afraid of the outcome, but because we embrace it. Either move forward or start dying because I don’t want to live a life without meaning. Intensity later balanced by harmony and back to intensity.
Raw strength has been valuable in nearly all cultures throughout time. As you become capable of performing heavy work through multiple planes of motion, you gain strength both inner and outer.
The struggles of life are best faced with strong core values, because no matter the outcome you strive to rise above it.
