I love to lift heavy. It is what keeps me coming to the gym. My dad has always told me about a trend that he has seen in his lifetime and it goes something like this:
"I have never understood when perception became more important than reality. Guys would rather look strong than be strong. Girls care more about skinny than fit. People care about how much it looks like they make more than how much is in the bank. Why do people care so much about what everyone else is thinking?"
It seems like the entire world has shifted from doing things to showing off...
