[GTS Mindset] Strength king in sports.

Quote via Pavel and Dan John's Easy Strength

" Strength will always be the king in sports.

Russian scientists insist that it is strength that is the foundation of all other physical attributes. And don't let anyone baffle you with the argument that a weak fighter can beat a powerlifter. No one is suggesting that strength is all that matters.  You still need the skills, conditioning, and other attributes of a warrior. But everything else being equal, the stronger fighter shall prevail every time.

A stale joke explains just how strong one needs to be:

Two Russians were attacked by a bear and started running.  One of them yelled, "Why are we doing this?! You can't outrun a bear!"
The other one ran even faster and yelled back: "I don't need to outrun the bear. I just need to outrun you!"

A fighter does not need to be stronger than a powerlifter, just stronger than other fighters."
