Coach
Joseph Lucero

If you want to become a superior type of athlete, it's important to break the norms of traditional strength training by getting creative.  With using unique, dynamic, and explosive movements...you give yourself an edge against the competition. Some of the best deadlifters in the world use movements such as farmer walks and suitcase deadlifts to increase their ability. Some of the best football players in the world use tire flips and sand bag carries to increase their ability. Becoming "harder to kill" is the ultimate mindset that you are not only strong enough to reach your goals, but you are becoming an individual that could very well be HARDER TO KILL!
