    weight lifting quotes

    what quotes do u guys use to keep yourself motivated to hit the weights and push through pain everyday?

    mines are:
    "sacrifice is giving up something good for something better"
    "Pain is weakness leaving the body"
    "luck is the result of hard work and preparation"
    "Success comes before work....only in the dictionary"
    "Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal"
    "To be upset over what you don't have is to waste what you do have."
    "starting something is easy, but to finish it you must be willing to pay the price of sacrifice."
    Height: 5ft 8in
    weight: 140lbs

    Bench: 170 max
    Squat: 210 max

    Be charitable, lift harder for those who can't!!!

    Someone here has a quote in their signature by Ronnie Coleman (I think) that goes something like: "If you always do what you always did, then you'll always get what you always got"

    Pff don't use quotes. If I need motivation I look at how much is on the bar.

    But if I had to choose?...

    this sounds corny but to get myself motivated to go to the gym I say to myself over and over

    "Want it"
    "Need it"
    "feel it"
    "love it"

    "Persistence Persistence. Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - Calvin Coolidge.

    Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it.
    Author: George Halas

    A man's health can be judged by which he takes two at a time -- pills or stairs.
    Author: Joan Welsh

    People who don't know how to keep themselves healthy ought to have the decency to get themselves buried, and not waste time about it.
    Author: Henrik Ibsen

    The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens.

    "Down this road, in a gym far away,
    a young man was heard to say,
    "no matter what i do, my legs won't grow"
    he tried leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses , too
    trying to cheat, these sissy workouts he'd do.

    from the corner of the gym where the big men train,
    through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain
    where the noise is made with big forty fives,
    a deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees.
    a very big man with legs like trees.

    laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack
    chalking his hands and monstrous back,
    said, "boy, stop lying and don't say you've forgotten,
    the trouble with you is you ain't been SQUATTIN'.

    The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds. " -Henry Rollins
