You don't need to be at the gym 7 days a week, but it helps if you don't have to worry about me hugging you too hard ;)
this is HEALTHY
and a great GOAL...for all of us..
watch, and see.
"the goal, here guys"
"No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training...what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable." -Socrates. "
-------------thanks to another fitness athlete here on RJ who writes this and it is meaningful for all of us.....: he wrote
I'm a hard working guy and I love to push myself during my workouts. High intensity training helped me accomplish my physical goals at the gym. I don't cheat at the gym and in my relationships.
I treat others the same way I would like to be treated.
I'm blessed to have my friends and family who love and support me.
I learned that life is too short to wake up every day and worry about how you are going to make random strangers accept you.
I'm truly enjoying life right now.
great friend wrote to me.....
""""'m pretty nuts and my sense of self confidence is tied to how I look and how much I exercise. So I'm motivated by wanting to look good, but mostly for myself, and not necessarily to get sex. I like to have other people like to look at me, but not really for sex. Just to feed my ego'''''''''''''''priceless...I love this....

I wasn't like, 'oh, I'll just go because I was eating a lot' or 'I'll just go because my abs are going away' and I actually started going 5 days a week. After about a month of research, tears, and working out with proper form, my muscular endurance sharply increased and I was stretch marks because my pecs were just getting way too big way too fast for my skin to stretch out. I went from 30 minute workouts to 70 minute minimum workouts because I need the intensity, and that's not including my cardio. Really what you need to do is make a realistic plan and you need to do your research or hire a personal trainer. It's better to lift light with low weights with proper form then to lift heavy and not do it properly, along with the risk of injury.
