And that's the important: Just keep going and the weights will come, the strength will come. If it was easy, it wouldn't be worth it, if it was easy, you wouldn't appreciate the final outcome, if it was easy, you wouldn't understand the drive and fortitude the it takes to get strong or big or whatever your goal may be. Think about it, think long and hard. In history, ease of effort is never rewarded with greatness, but hard work and determination eventually are rewarded.
So what is the key to getting big and strong or lean or whatever your goal may be? Consistency. It's going to the gym when it is a holiday, it's going to the gym when your girlfriend breaks up with you or your wife is complaining that the garage is a mess, it's going to the gym when you are on vacation, or when you feel like you have a cold coming on or just don't feel quite like yourself. It is never, ever saying that you don't have the time or that you are too busy.
It's going to the gym when you know that you have 10 sets of squats in front of you and it is a Sunday morning and the whole family is in their warm beds, and you have to brush off the snow from the windshield of your truck and start that engine and crank up the Hatebreed and just get going to the gym. You see, that is what makes you special. That is what sets you apart from the talkers and the "I remember high school before my knee injury" people. You are doing it, it's important to you. And no matter what anyone thinks or says, you know that when you challenge yourself with the weights and you come out stronger, that you have achieved something of which you don't care if others understand one bit.
You like that people think that you are a little nuts. To you, it's nuts that they don't do what you do. It makes you feel like you have something inside that they don't have nor will they ever understand.
