I really needed this. I have been in a slump for about a month. Sometimes we need to be slapped.

Nice read a bit long for my testosterone heavy eyes but never the less kinda funny. The truth sucks and we all train for what we have.
I had worked with a boss for 8 months and everyone was asking me about about training right in his face. One day he asks "do you go to the gym?" I smiled and said "why yes I do." What do you do... My big round ass and chest bursting out of my shirt was to subtle for him I guess, at least the ladies noticed.
great read minutes before i hit the gym

Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.
It's that time of year.
Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

wow, awesome read.
Heck of a article man. One of the best reads ive had in a long time.
lol loved it
i just sent this to a couple people as a little christmas motivational gift..
i kno what this is like though
people come up to me all the time and ask me to give em a program or have me train them or for advice....

You cant buy strength, but you sure as hell can work for it
