“Take a vision of what you want and make it real”.
I'm often asked how to build a strong mind. That ability to take myself to the next level. One of the parts to that answer is physical practice. You can't expect to read about it and then have it.. you have to work on it, forge it yourself so it changes you forever.

“Being hardcore starts with you” – Scott Evennett
What I mean by this is we all have the ability to forge that heartened mind and body. But first, you must know who you truly are and be comfortable with that. The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world that is trying to shape you into something else.
Starting from an early age in Soccer and Gymnastics I was always obsessed with the physical. It didn’t matter that I was the only boy in my school doing gymnastics. I was loving it. And unbeknown to me at the time this would shape who I am today, both mentally and physically.
Over the next few weeks, we are going to be looking at essential movements for a Commando utilising different style of training and equipment. This week we are looking at functional movements that can be done using small amounts of equipment, so there will be no excuses as to why you won't be able to find these basic pieces of equipment.
A Commando needs to have a holistic base level of fitness in which he can perform any task in any circumstance. The importance of these movements is that the exercises while they don't seem like they are exact movements that you would perform as a Commando, even though some are such as box jump and sumo deadlift high pull. What they do is build the necessary strength in the muscles that you will need to move whether it be during training or in combat.
