Stand Like the Rock

“In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like the rock.”—Thomas Jefferson 

Some squat in old-school Chucks, some prefer elevated heels; some swear by whey protein while others go milk and egg.  Some lift five days a week, some lift four, some lift three, others two; some wear gear, others go raw.  Let's face it, there are a whole lot of choices in the iron game with consequences that amount to little more than personal preference.  And then there's that one big choice—the only real choice that is a matter of principle whose consequence determines if you stand like a rock or build your strength, name, and future on pillars of sand.



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, define the world of stonelifting.
