from Mike Boyles Strengthcoach.com...

Quote
Charles Pazdera: Real Strength
Vince Gabriele

The other day we lost one of the strongest kids in the world. I refer to him as a kid because that is how I knew him. Charles was about six years younger than me and we grew up together as close family friends, even though far apart in age. You could never refer to him as a kid anymore. No kid could ever stare cancer in the face for 3 years and walk tall the entire time, never ever once saying why me. This was a man. Charles is now pain free and waiting for us. He defines the word strong.



In the training world we view strong as 500 pound squat or a 600 pound deadlift. Charles had a different strong. Early in his battle with cancer he had a major surgery that required the removal of his entire right scapula, shoulder joint and collar bone to try to remove the tumors. This was not some minor procedure - this was 12 hours of hell that would handicap Charles for life.



I knew Charles was very into lifting weights. I had trained Charles for a few months back in 2002 before I moved to California and I remember how dedicated he was that summer in the weight room. In fact, the way he found out about his cancer was from a visit to an orthopedist about an ailing shoulder that he assumed was from lifting.



What would you do if someone ripped out the major bones of your back and shoulder?



Most would not go to your friend and ask for an exercise program to work around it. This is exactly what Charles did.



I was not really sure how Charles was going to able to lift any weights. I wrote Charles a program where he was able to train his lower body with minimal use of his right arm. We have a safety bar at the gym so he was able to squat with minimal stress to his surgical area. For his posterior chain we used 45 degree back extensions, again minimal stress to his upper back, and these rocked his glutes and hamstrings and Charles loved them. I have not prescribed a Swiss ball crunch in years but when I looked at his program I added them along with Front Planks for his core. Again minimal movement and stress to his surgical area.



His upper body work consisted of Neutral Grip Incline Push-Ups and Blast Strap Rows. When he pulled himself up on a set of Blast Strap Rows he was crooked and the reps looked like he was pulling with only one arm but after each set he would smile and say "it's so great to be back in the gym." The push-ups were tough for him and range of motion was minimal but I still see him in the corner of the gym doing his best.



Charles loved arm work. I could tell that before Charles got sick he trained his biceps and triceps like crazy, typical college kid trying to look good. We put those in and that was like dessert for Chaz. Again, they were not pretty but just watching him perform DB Curls and Band Pushdowns made me so proud of him. I loved the face he would make when it really burned. He always had a smile and never once complained that something hurt.



For Charles's cardio we just did steady state walking on the treadmill at 140 BPM for about 30 minutes. I guess I prescribed this because I wanted him to be around the gym longer.



When you do not feel like getting up for work, think of Charles. When you get to the end of your workout and you do not feel like doing intervals, think of Charles. When it burns toward the end of your set, think of the smile on Charles's face after his arms burned. When you are having trouble starting an exercise program after it's been a few years, take a long look at both of your arms and legs and your cancer free body and then tell me you can't, better yet, tell Charles you can't. I am not sure if he will have any sympathy for you. Then again, he might, this is how incredible this young man is. Full of life, smiles and love - and unfortunately cancer.



Charles's funeral was like a party. It was a celebration of a young man that taught us so many things about perseverance, bravery, toughness, stubbornness and love. The number of people that showed up for Charles was incredible. It showed how much he meant to so many and confirmed the footprint he leaves on all who knew him -- or about him -- and how missed he will be.

dinosaur training is a GREAT book.

That's what my program has been for the last several months basically. I'm switching to S2B again, with massive eating to get up weight (if you saw my post on facebook, part of why I had a little breakdown was the 12 pounds I lost since track ended). Plan for then next 4 months: Scrawny to Brawny, pack on as much weight as I can, if it doesn't happen, I'll up my kcal until I've grown to at least 150, then I'll be back on Dinosaur Training for the pure strength.

"If you guys are really wondering if you are 'burning out mentally' take a day off and go to a hospital. Go to the cancer wing and look at a 4 year old, who won't ever see their teenage years, probably won't ever see their next birthday. Go and see someone who is mentally or physically retarded. Or see when a soldier who just came back from the war who doesn't have a leg anymore. Stare that guy down, look him right in the eyes, and tell him, as you stand there on 2 capable legs, that you are 'burned out'. That you don't want to use them. See if that doesn't kill him right there. Because he'd do anything to have that opportunity".

Only further advice that springs to mind is that you are gonna feel like crap for a couple of weeks probably, work through it. And develop a strong mind, and keep in mind that many big squats have been developed this way, belief in the program is the main thing. If your belief gets shaken, the whole thing will come apart. And upon further consideration, that last sentence is most probably the most important thing for you to hear upon undertaking this.

Quote
love to tell this story, and now I have a perfect chance to tell it.

I first heard this story from Martin Rooney when he came out to do a seminar at MSU when I worked there. I may be getting some parts a little wrong, but here it goes.

Many years ago a famous tight rope walker named Jean Francois Gravelot AKA "The Amazing Blondin" set out to show the world he was the best ever. He decided to go about walking on a tight rope across Niagara Falls. However, he wanted to show how talented he was, so he ditched the long pole in favor of pushing a wheelbarrow. This made the trip much harder, as he couldn't balance as easily. To make a long story short, he eventually walks all the way across the falls and safely to the other side. Upon reaching land he is greeted by journalists and fans who compliment him and praise his efforts. While the fanfare dies down, the tight rope walker is left alone with one last reporter who asks him a question.

"Mr. Blondin, what made you think you would be able to make it across?"

Blondin responds by asking the reporter, "Do you know the difference between thinking and believing?"

The reporter is a bit confused at this point and says, "I guess I don't."

Blondin says, "Well, do you THINK I could walk across the falls again?"

The reporter says, "Sure. I just saw you do it."

Blondin then says, "Well, do you BELIEVE I could walk across the falls again?"

The reporter says, "Whats the difference?"

Blondin says, "If you believe, YOU will ride in my wheelbarrow!"

BELIEVE every time you go to the gym.


believe in what youre doing.

"Well, what I can do for you is to help you understand if you're going to stand any chance whatsoever of achieving your dream there is no back up. There is no comfort zone. There is no safety net. There is nothing else. Your focus has to be on this and this alone!"

That mindset is what sets champions apart in entertainment and sport. Somebody that has backup plans is never going to have the same hunger as somebody who's life depends on achieving their goal.

We drink too much; smoke too much; spend too recklessly; laugh too little; drive too fast; get too angry quickly; stay up too late; get up too tired; read too seldom; watch TV too much and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values; we fly in faster planes to arrive there quicker, to do less and return sooner; we sign more contracts only to realize fewer profits; we talk too much; love too seldom and lie too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life; we've added years to life, not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We've conquered outer space, but not inner space; we've done larger things, but not better things; we've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul; we've split the atom, but not our prejudice; we write more, but learn less; plan more, but accomplish less; we make faster planes, but longer lines; we learned to rush, but not to wait; we have more weapons, but less peace; higher incomes, but lower morals; more parties, but less fun; more food, but less appeasement; more acquaintances, but fewer friends; more effort, but less success. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication; drive smaller cars that have bigger problems; build larger factories that produce less. We've become long on quantity, but short on quality.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, but short character; steep in profits, but shallow relationships. These are times of world peace, but domestic warfare; more leisure and less fun; higher postage, but slower mail; more kinds of food, but less nutrition. These are days of two incomes, but more divorces; these are times of fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, cartridge living, thow-away morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies and pills that do everything from cheer, to prevent, quiet or kill. It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stock room. Indeed, these are the times!

Celi dropped another gem.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgqZyMDHmEE

I watched his video a few more times, decided to share it:

Quote
A superb video my friend Steven Celi put together. He's well known in the dunk game for his commitment, passion, relentless hard work, creativity, motivation etc. The thing that stands out the most to me, is simply how he immerses himself in the process and tries to understand how all of the tiny details fit together. Transformations are difficult, no matter what the endeavor. It's a puzzle, that must be put together. It's easy to look outward for answers - but truly understanding why one component works & another doesn't, is crucial and most often discovered inward - through trial and error. A few of those sentences rhymed, though that was not intended. Closing 2017 on a positive note. GO.GeT.IT 8|

Thing is.. his video editing & photography have improved so much, just reminds me of how he approached dunking. He has gotten really good at learning through trial and error IMHO .. which is great stuff. Gives him a unique angle on things IMHO.

“People think confidence is the belief that you have the ability to win, or at least to compete with the best. But that’s not what confidence is, or where it comes from. Confidence has nothing to do with outcome. Confidence doesn’t come from knowing that you control the outcome of a given event or moment. It comes from knowing that you control your response to a given event. Can you maintain the characteristics of a champion, regardless of what life throws at you? If you can – that’s confidence.” - @benbergeron .

Just a small clip. I love it, especially because it's "words during a press conf" by LEBRON.

love this.. sometimes you forget how much of a manchild he was.. at 18, sounds "grown", from his words to his actual voice. hah.

and, he tried to get into the NBA at age 17 (junior year h.s.).



this is so good
