Do You Need to Be Strong?
“Strength is the outcome of need.”—H. G. Wells
While there are many reasons why a lot of lifters hit plateaus and fail to make progress (they've ceased or more realistically never started serious squatting; they still devote certain days to train certain body parts; they consume about a third of the protein they need; their intensity level is permanently stuck two clicks shy of lethargy), the most common cause remains their goals simply don't require it!
Editor's Note: Steve Jeck’s books, Of Stones and Strength and The Stone Lifter; and videos, Kviahellan DVD, Jeck on Stonelifting video, and Classic Jeck: The First Works CD, are available in our on-line store.
