Must See Video of True Inspiration!!

Amazing video I stole of The Diesel Crew's website.

I think too often we get caught up in numbers and only look to those lifting huge poundages for inspiration (I will put myself in that category also from time to time). The reality is that true inspiration comes in all forms. I've seen someone struggle and show more determination with a 150 lb deadlift than someone deadlifting 600+ lbs in competition. Yes you need to train intelligently, but if you don't have the internal motivation and drive you are screwed for starters.

No matter how "easy" it will be, there will never be any substitution for hard work. Even in a perfect world where a trainer shows up at your home to train you in your home gym, a chef comes in to cook you tasty and gourmet meals, someone mows your lawn, cleans your home, etc--YOU still have to LIFT the weights and put in the work! No one will ever be able to do that for you. Today's culture is too interested in quick fixes.

Dr. Cobb recently said at the R Phase cert, "The body you currently have is the body you earned"


What action are you going to take now?
