I recently hit over 21 followers, and I really want to thank you guys. I didn’t expect that in the slightest, especially since this site has only been around for a month. I truly appreciate the support, and promise to keep delivering the goods. Unless I get lazy and decide to just coast, which is a huge possibility, but until then, I’ll keep the ship right.
Anytime you look at the New York Times Bestseller List, or Amazon’s Best Seller List for books, you can almost guarantee that the lists are going to be heavy with diet books. It’s been like that for decades, and it’s going to continue to be that way. Why? Because people want the silver-bullet to their health issues. With everything in our society being available at the literal touch of a button, people are more impatient and lazy than ever.
What? Work for something? Time? Paitence? The hell with that. I want results, and I want them NOW. It’s absolutely ridiculous that diet books keep selling, because the information is so damn simple. Eat in a relativity healthy manner, and exercise often. THAT’S IT. There is no super-secret algorithm that unlocks the weight-loss & muscle gain.
These programs that promise you 10 years worth of results in 90 days, pills that do the same, magazines promising you massive arms in 30 days. It’s all bullshit, guys. It’s all a joke. If these things were as easy as promised, then everyone would be walking around, buff as all hell. But society is more over-weight than ever.
Another big problem is celebrities. If you type in “Chris Evans” or “Chris Helmsworth” into google, usually the first suggestion that comes up is “Chris Evans/Helmsworth workout”. These guys look great, so obviously people want their programs. But here’s the problem: A celebrity’s job is to look good. Before they start filming, all that matters is getting them into shape. They have the best personal trainers, equipment, and personal chefs that money can buy, and without a doubt, PEDs. I mean, they’d be fools to not use steroids/HGH, as it gives them exactly what they want in no time flat. Again, people look at them and want their workout, thinking it’s going to be the magic bullet. But don’t realize, because it’s never mentioned in magazines, that these guys workout, then just hang out at home while their chefs cook their egg-white omelets and their masseuses rub them down.
Anything worth having is worth working for, guys. I know most of you who read this are already dedicated, but for those that come across my site as beginners, looking for advice, there is no silver-bullet. Don’t be a punk. Buckle down, and start kicking ass. That said, if anyone ever needs help, or has a subject they’d like to see me cover, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alright, let’s get on with today’s pull workout…
