I saw a video posted over at Lex’s blog today about mental toughness. I thought is was good and I wanted to post the video over here. A few guys I train with like to compete, and I figure this will give them a bit of an edge.
I remember watching an episode of Bully Beatdown where the bully was a Russian dude. In the beginning, I figured this guy would get owned like all others before him, but I quickly learned that he was a different kind of person. No matter what his opponent threw at him, he didn’t go down. I was shocked, to say the least. I think I remember him vomiting and having to have to go to the hospital, or something like that, after the match, but still – he was tough. Kind of like the guys Cary Kolat talks about in the video below.
