Underground Strength

Lead From The Front

If you've been with us for a while, you've undoubtedly seen or heard the phrase, "Lead From The Front".  This is a phrase that was first introduced to me by one of my mentors, Zach Even Esh.  He used it in several contexts, but it ended up being far more than just a phrase to me.  I adopted it as a mantra and applied it as a way of life.

I'm not going to sit here and spell it out for you.  It's such a simple and perfect idea that it deserves to be left untouched...un-f*cked with.  It would also be silly for me to inadvertently  influence your understanding of "Lead From The Front" with mine.

All you really need to understand is that this is part of what makes TCS such an awesome place to be a part of.  The people busting their ass on the floor day in, and day out, apply this idea - whether they know it or not.

In fact, the inspiration for this post was not some amazing act of athleticism or human performance, but something vastly more important and profound.  The inspiration for all of this is an image that was caught during the Women's Only Friday Night SWOD.  

Take a second to really look at this picture.  This is what "Lead From The Front" is all about.

Friday Night SWOD - SIGNUP!

Alright!  The time has come!

We are throwing down another Friday Night SWOD (the TCS Edition) Friday, the 10th of January.

The underground strength/strongman-inspired competition is open to all, but is only taking 15 men and 15 women so you'll need to act FAST if you wanna play.

Athletes will have the option to compete as an "Rx'd Athlete" or a "Scaled Athlete".  This is simply a matter of loading, NOT skill.  It's important that you understand - Everyone can play!  It should also be noted that only "Rx'd" athletes will be in the running for the CA$H prize for 1st place male and female.

The night will be comprised of 3 Fast'N'Nasty workouts that will bias towards strength and the ability to handle odd objects and tasks.  To put it simply: This will be about WORK.  But, it will be fun...

Lastly, all spectators are welcome!
