Barbells and bumpers

The thing about training, specifically strength training; it teaches you who you are.

There are no excuses, no slacking off, no snow days. If you have not been doing the work, the reps, the math, the training, you will be met with like in/kind. There are no Cliff Notes in barbells and bumpers.

Rather, if you do not do the work, what you will be met with, the only thing that waits for you at the end of that finish line, is more you; The one that says, I Can’t.

The barbell wins, every time. It leaves you exactly where you left it.

You can’t rationalize or good intention or Bad Day it away. You still have to face where you left off. And if you have not put in the work, further back, it may leave you still.
