Day 241 of 365: Band Walk Testimonial

I unveiled the Band Walk Challenge 1 month ago in hopes of giving y’all something very simple and time effective that would bring some big results in your lifts.  I heard numerous positive reports, but this testimonial from Steve Kurvach of WarFighter Fitness was above and beyond.  So, today, I am stoked to share how this came about and the amazing results Steven and his WarFighters have seen simply by incorporating the Band Walk Challenge.

About a week after releasing the Band Walk Challenge, I recieved a comment from Steven that read,

“Did the lateral walk x 20 x 3 on Saturday. What I did not expect was the way this activates the posterior chain! I felt totally stoked and added 40# to my Back Squat 3RM the same day! This shit’s legit!”

I quickly responded with how pumped I was that he was taking on the challenge and actually incorporating it in the way that he trains his athletes.  One thing lead to another, and Steven actually did his own lecture and demo on the lateral band walk.  Here it is…

If that shit isn’t cool enough….He followed up with these kind words,

“Love what you’re doing with the project man – I coach a group of guys from Ranger Battalion and a group of civilian athletes as well, and your site is a constant inspiration for the meatgrinder sessions that I put these guys and gals through. So again – thank you.”

This is exactly why I F*cking love what I do!  I had big visions for what this 365 Days Of Strength project was going to provide for people out there, but hearing testimonials like this and getting such awesome feedback and dialogue with outstanding people is completely worth every key-stroke on this computer!  Thank you all for your support and continued feedback.

BTW…I will be sending a Strictly Strength shirt to Steven for his participation in the Band Walk Challenge.  I would love to send more to people, but you gotta let me know what’s going on with you and your athletes, people!  Let me hear and see it!
