I like it when you drop the weights and this is why:

It’s empowering as fuck.

We don’t always get a lot of opportunities to just make some fucking noise and unleash our beast mode. Dropping the weights and hearing that big thundering sound doesn’t just sound cool. It feels cool. Like, really fucking cool. It gives you that sense of like, “Yeah I’m a bad ass. I just lifted that shit” and not in a bro-y or douche-y kind of way, but more in a “I’m feeling strong and unfuckable within a world that’s always fucking with ME!”

Yeah, it can be a little loud and sometimes a little intimidating, especially for newbie gym people. Still, I think it’s an important thing to teach members not just because of safety reasons (sometimes the best thing to do is get the fuck outta the lift and just safely drop it), but also because it’s our duty as your coaches to strengthen you not only physically, but fucking spiritually too.

So go on and not only lift that shit, but “drop the mic” on ’em!
