Even though I started lifting with the mentality that you need to focus on lifting and put conditioning aside, now that I've incorporated sprints, runs, and mobility like the Agile 8 every day I feel like I'm much stronger and more capable than I was before. I recover better, too. I've been doing jumps similar to what you just described as of late and it makes me wish I was this focused and in this kind of shape 12 years ago when I was playing football in high school. I wouldn't have been a mouth-breathing offensive lineman that only got the position because I was fat.
Basically, ever since I've actually fully committed to taking your advice, I've improved drastically in all aspects.
Also, I completely understand the music reference. More people should give Neurosis a chance, much like the rest of your advice.
Thanks, Jim. I'm serious when I say that 5/3/1 has been slowly changing my life for the better.
