Listen: Soccer, Tiger Woods, Four Hundred Pounds discussed on Mark Bell's Power Project
"That's important. Then we'll do the and seem did you get into lifting kind of simultaneously with soccer? Or did you get into soccer at a pretty young age? And I got into soccer when I was six, and when I was thinking about all the stuff that they do. I was just realizing how how lucky it was. Then I started a sports so young just because like if I didn't start doing that sport, it it's an especially with the coaches, I add it all of my leg. Everything. I do right now. Soccer. Possum? Kids watching us right now like I should play soccer. Yeah. And I just think about how crazy beneficial. It is what you guys are doing these. I didn't start lifting until I was thirteen kind of lucky to start that. But that aided so much into when I returned back to the field because I was so much bigger and stronger than everybody else that wasn't lifting and then all my other college guys started lifting in college when I played with them. So the fact that you're going to be building all these mutant kids right again out. Yeah. It would have been different too. If you would have met up with guys like this because you had a lot of neat problems. Right. My god. Yeah. At Ascot slaughter. So mean, okay. Yeah. You've probably you guys would have been able to identify that and probably help guide him in a different direction. Yeah. Absolutely. It's crazy. You know, I think coaches, and parents always pushed towards doing just more sport, more sport. And they don't see the benefit of the essence e program as the base like he said, you know, the sport should be the peak of the pyramid. It's not it's not your base, you know, but the the wider in the greater you build the base the further the athletes going to be able to go inside of their sport. You prove that with soccer, right? And you know, I think parents parents look at a camp, and they're like, oh, I need to send my kid, this Tiger Woods golf can't. Because they're going to they're going to be a better golfer in that might be true. Right. Like, they might come at the at the end of that can't they might be a better golfer. But if you hang fifty pounds in on their on their squat deadly. They're different golfer completely right? And then they have the ability to go further inside of that sport. Because that so building. Base is just that's what it's all about. And I mean, that's that's kind of cool that you experienced it personally to kids playing soccer walls out there. They have equal skills. Same size. One kid is twice strong as the other one who's gonna get the ball. The will kid who stronger is probably gonna run faster get the ball. If they meet up in the middle and the struggling over the ball who's going to get the ball, the one that's bigger and stronger stronger. So why wouldn't you want your could be stronger that was you know, it's just seems to me in every way strength is going to help you in a specific sport in every single way. What do you guys think about like, you know, like field strength? You know, like strength. That's a that. You can clearly see on the court or on the field of play versus you know, somebody squat and four five reps. You know in the gym. I'm sure you guys have had some mutant high school kids come in before. And probably had a couple of guys me bench close to four hundred pounds like on their way out of high school, or or you know, squat five six hundred. Pounds or some crazy weights. Right. And that's cool. But a lotta times it's not like, you know, the best guy on the field. And and so what are some of your thoughts on that, you know, trying to get that strength really translate into the onto the field. It translates in the way that they can express it best. So you take that athlete that may be strong inside of the gym, right? The are perfect example. We had an athlete that was benching, you know, you bench three sixty five his his junior year of high school. Wow.."
