experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face… Do the thing you
think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

sizes in one day. You won’t lose fifty pounds in one month. You’re going to
binge every now and then. You will go a day or two without working out. Your
weight is going to fluctuate here and there. You’re going to try new techniques
and they’re not going to work, You’re a human being. You’re going to fail. But
nothing great is ever accomplished without a few obstacles. JUST KEEP GOING!!!!!”
11. “If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing
to do something you’ve never done.” – Thomas Jefferson
12. “I’m sure you’ve all read the latest article on the
popular muscle building sites about how to develop a fuller, thicker back with
“these 2 NEW maximal hypertrophy igniting muscle shocking lifts!” The title
lures you in, but when you get inside, you find a small man doing strange
movements that make little sense and use almost no weight. They aren’t making
him any thicker, and they aren’t likely to add slabs of lean mass to you
either.” – Jordan Martin
13. “If you can’t explain the essence of your program to a
three-year old in 60 seconds, its too complicated. I’ve trained with Olympic
medal winners and I can assure you, they don’t do anything mysterious, they
just do the exercises better than we do.” –  Maik Weidenbach
14. “Some people like to live without too much risk.
They’re satisfied leading a safe existence. This attitude of caution
infiltrates into their goals. Every successful athlete – or businessperson –
enjoys taking calculated risks. You have to. Especially in the gym when you’re
squatting 500 for reps and you can’t get one more but grunt out ten. Your nose
starts bleeding, you fall into the rack and that’s set one.” -Tom Platz

 

15. “There’s more to life than training, but training is
what puts more in your life.” – Brooks Kubik
