    Thumbs up A Treatise on Strength

    Primal Fuel
    Hi Guys.

    I have recently completed a 4 part blog series called, "A Treatise on Strength". Essentially the idea was to put down in writing a outline of the factors that create a balanced, strong, person. The idea is backed with a primal mindset.

    Help a brother out, take a look at it, and leave me some feedback. You can leave feedback here or on the blog itself.

    My next major post will be on the potential for enlightenment through powerlifting


    A Treatise on Strength


    Thanks!

    I will definitely read it later but as a stimulus for your next post you could think about how many ancient philosophers had an athletic background. Socrates, for example, was a soldier.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    You write very well. That is coming from an English professor, BTW. And I agree with your conclusions. Strength is something that has become undervalued in our current society.

    For some reason Part 2 doesn't load. 1, 3, and 4 do. You might want to check on that.

    @Paleobird, thank you, that means a lot. I try to be concise and specific with my writing.

    @Alex good, I have thought about that, but I may have to dig a bit deeper.

    All the links are fixed. The feedback really helps

    Grok on

    PB, you can read Part 2 here: A treatise on physical strength. The link he has at the bottom of his first post doesn't work, but you can get to it via his blog home page.

    Josh, I really liked these. I especially like how you summed it up: "Strength is the mental and physical fortitude to endure, resilience to bounce back, and force to create change, allowing you to thrive in any circumstance and through any adversity."

    That has been part of my personal philosophy, but I've never defined it so precisely. Well done!

    Actually Paleobird, how would you feel about doing a little testimonial for my writing?

    Would the word of one retired English professor really be a testimonial?

    Well, I am assuming your grasp of the English language is a good one, and as an English professor, people will hold your views on writing in high regard. So, yes
