Life is like being in a boxing ring. You never know where the next blow is coming from or when it will arrive.

Strength coach, martial artist, and top trainer Alwyn Cosgrove likes a metaphor of learning how to take a punch.
“When you’re learning how to fight, and someone throws a punch at you, your first instinct, of course, is to duck backwards. But this is the worst thing to do. It throws you off balance and exposes your entire front side to attack. As counter-intuitive as it sounds, you actually want to block and close the distance — to go into the punch.” (quote from Precision Nutrition)
