I grew up watching strongman every morning before school, I would always wake up earlier than anyone else and watch Zydrunas Savickas and Mariusz Pudzianowski go head to head on atlas stones, or log press, or some other feat of inhuman strength. I always remember being so young and just wishing that some day I could be big and strong. It's hard sometimes not to be comfortable in your own skin, when you look in the mirror all you see is your pain manifested in some extra lbs. I vowed that nutrition and strength training will become a part of my life, a healthy obsession that I will use to achieve my goals.

I apologize for the emotionally charged rant, but this is the first time I've ever really shared these thoughts with anyone. Who better than to share with a community of people that have the same determination and fire that flows through their veins. Thank you everyone here at MAB for helping to keep kids like me on the straight path to reaching our goals.
Why I want this?

Ask your heart this question, and it will answer you. True motivation comes from within. Empower this superpower. And, you do this with the contents of your skull connected to the contents of the heart.

Through this partnership, you will find your personal vitality and intellectual ability; which will enable you to use the tools the body provides: Two hands and two feet, to get what you want done within the confines of your heart.

No one can stand in your way when you have this joint partnership connected to your balls--not even the enemy within you, and you will find peace along your journey. You swing them, now use them, as the ammunition between the partnership of your brain and your heart.

Achievers know that we are not born with the same physical, mental, and environmental attributes.

But they do know that everyone has the same potential and right to feel excitement and motivation in believing they can work toward any goal they desire.

Thank you guys a lot for all the awesome inspirational stories, and thoughts. I'm glad that this has been a way to help motivate each other. I'm looking forward to hopefully making my way to my first meet by winter time, and hopefully shaping up a little bit by losing some fat around the middle.

If it were not for honey men would regard figs as sweeter than now.
