I’m Just Saying…

1.  The primary goal of strength training should be to elicit gains in strength and lean tissue.  Some people may not care to be strong.  That is fine.  Please don’t ever ask for help when attempting to  open a jar, shovel snow, push your car out of a ditch, loosen the lug nuts to change a tire, carry the groceries, climb a fence to get away from a rabid dog, or any other physical tasks that may prove important in daily life. I’m just saying.

2.  What you really mean when you say you don’t have time to train is that you don’t care enough to make the time.  My day has 24 hours in it.  How many hours does your day have?  Perhaps you could skip American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Jersey Shore, and all of the other garbage that oozes its way from your television into your living room on a nightly basis.  Wow, look at that.  Thats 3 hours of gym time right there.  I’m just saying.

3.  Most people need more protein, fiber and healthy fats in their diet and less carbohydrates.  Carbohydrates are to your body as gasoline is to your car.  If you only drove your car 1/4 mile everyday, you would not fill your tank everyday on your way to work.  I’m just saying.

  1. Back off my Jersey Shore time- if I get enough lean tissue and strength I could be the next Situation! I can watch that and still have two hours to train a night.

  2. That last analogy is a keeper…keep up the good no nonsense posts!
