There’s a story about how one morning the Bulgarian weightlifting team came to breakfast and found Naim Suleymanoglu asleep at the table, head by his plate, fork in hand - just where he’d passed out from fatigue while eating dinner the night before.
This month, Steve Jeck digs in his quarry for a little wisdom on fate: Lifting heavy, training hard - is it your destiny? Logo courtesy of IronMind®.
True or not, this is quite an image of commitment and the inevitability of one’s fate: speaking of his star pupil’s success, Suleymanoglu’s original weightlifting coach - Enver Turkileri - once told IronMind®’s Randall Strossen, “Naim came into this world to do this. He had this destiny.”
How about you? Are your knees weak? Are you ready to throw in the towel before you even start?
