Sounds good in theory but not in practice. Someone standing 5 feet tall and weighing 90 lbs, is never going to develop the physique of Ronnie Coleman or even come close to some of the people on this board. This is especially true when the person is not using gear. I applaud what you are trying to say, but one should set realistic limits/goals for oneself. A TRUE mindset of "there are no limits!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" will end in overtraining, injury, giving up, or all three. So realistic limits are a better idea, and should one reach those limits, well then he/she always has the option of changing/surpassing those limits
