So, last weekend I was talking to a girl that I recently met and we were just lying there and she started to ask me about lifting. How I got into it, why don't I do something easier, what kind of injuries I've had, etc. After answering all these and finishing up with telling her that my shoulders are always hurt, my hips are usually tight, I have trouble sleeping through the night, etc. She asked me a very simple question. "What's the draw?"
My answer took no time at all to think of. I do this because it makes everything else easy. Powerlifting is the only place where you constantly push your body to its absolute limit. You either do or don't. You always know what your body is absolutely capable of. When you give it everything and it takes forever to get that last half inch, you know what it takes to get it done. After that, nothing is hard. It's also the only sport I can think of that doesn't get easier as you get better at it, it gets HARDER.
Anyway, the reason I keep going back to is simple. I do this because it makes everything in life easy.
So what's the draw? Why is it all worth it to you?
