I still see a conglomerate of lifting groups, circles, etc that espouse the entire theme of "I don't care what I look like, I am a strength athlete. I eat to get stronger." That or "I'm a strength athlete. I eat for performance, not for looks."

This is nothing more than an excuse to eat shit, get fat.

I am not proclaiming that you need to be ripped as a strength athlete. However as you look around the strength landscape the majority of the guys that are dominating are not tubby fat asses.

If you are eating for performance then your physique should be a reflection of that. You are not Big Z or Benni, so stop using the 1% of the 1% to justify your lard-assedness. If you are eating to perform, then your physique should be a reflection of that.

Training for looks isn't the name of the game. However as I've written 100 times before, your function should create your form. If you don't LOOK like you lift, then something is very wrong in regards to your diet and training.

Being "thick" because you're FAT isn't any different than.....being fat because you're fat.

Stop making excuses and get your shit in order.

"Leverages! Fat gives me leverages."

You know what else does? Muscle. Build some.

Watching skinny dudes do abs at the gym is like watching monkeys trying to catch each others farts. Funny, amusing, but mostly pointless.

It's not always about lifting heavy. Slow controlled reps can be the best way to achieve high level strength and break up the monotony of always training heavy!!

I don't ever wish a sick or hurting child on anyone. But these things always put life back into proper perspective.

Lifting weights? Something we do. A hobby.

Taking last at your bodybuilding competition or bombing out at a meet really aren't big deals in the grand scheme of life.

Having a bad workout is about as meaningful as missing an episode of something you wanted to watch on TV. You can always make it up later.

One of my favorite quotes is about love and loss. And that is, "Love cannot measure itself until the hour of parting."

You cannot understand your love for something until the loss of it. We may love our hobbies or a TV show but we really learn what's most important to us when the thought of the loss of it overshadows everything else in life.

Perspective can get loss in the mundane routines of life. Try your best not to let it.

"I am fond of telling doubting trainees that it's just a matter of always adding weight to the bar, adding another repetition, If you could get to the point where you're squatting 400 lbs for 20 reps, stiff-legged deadlifting 400 lbs for 15 reps, curling 200 for 10 reps, pressing 200 for 10 reps, doing 10 dips with 300 lbs around your waist, and chinning with 100 pounds, don't you think you would be big - I mean awfully big? And strong?
Obviously!"
Dr.Ken Leistner
