Weakness is a Choice

On October 12, 2013 by Physical Culturist

“It may be suggested that there is no reason why a man should go to the trouble and exertion of struggling with heavy weights, since there is no crying necessity for that particular man to acquire any phenomenal degree of strength. To that I would reply by asking why a man should desire to be weak?” – George Hackenschmidt

You Don’t Drown By Falling in the Water. You Drown By Staying There!

On October 10, 2013 by Physical Culturist

The well established conformists path is the easy one, it has been traveled many times and its rewards are mediocre at best.

The path of the freethinker, the adventurer, the one that dares to go against all the odds, however, has not yet been mapped out and as such must be created out of pure first hand experience, which is often times expressed unjustly as failure.

Do not be deterred but press on! Your ‘failures’ are making you stronger, wiser and enriching you with experience that few humans will ever know, and it is through these experiences that you will ultimately reach your goal.

“You’re Weak Because You’re Weak” – Jim Wendler

On October 6, 2013 by Physical Culturist

One of my favorite excuses from the Mediocre Army when defending their shitty numbers when compared to strong lifters is, “If I didn’t have a job and lifting was my job, I’d be that strong too!” No you wouldn’t. You’d be playing Xbox all day, engrossed in reality TV, and sleeping until noon. You’re weak because you’re weak.

– Jim Wendler

To Sculpt, You Must First Have Concrete

On October 5, 2013 by Physical Culturist

Good bodybuilders have the same mind that a sculptor has. If you analyse it, look in the mirror and you say, okay, I need a bit more deltoids, so that the proportion’s right, you exercise and put those deltoids on, whereas an artist would just slap on some clay on each side. – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Exercise Keeps The Body Young!

On October 1, 2013 by Physical Culturist

The picture below is great example of Physical Culture, and how physical exercise can keep the body strong, mobile and robust throughout our entire lives!

The Father of Modern Bodybuilding, Eugen Sandow, stated himself:

“My muscles have kept me young. This goes for both my body and my face. They question is often asked, why does one man look older than another of exactly the same age? I will answer this in the Irish way by asking another question, why does a healthy child look younger than a man of middle age? The answer to both is simply that in one case, the muscles of the face are kept in more constant movement than the other by the more frequent expression of varying thoughts, feelings, or emotions.”

This is my barbell. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My barbell is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My barbell, without me, is useless. Without my barbell, I am useless. I must lift my barbell true.

Exercise is Health Insurance

On September 25, 2013 by Physical Culturist

“It is my firm conviction that every young man who has not yet begun life hopelessly handicapped by an inheritance of organic disease, may build up a constitution and health which will enable him to live his life as gladly as does a child; to perform, without undue pain, the part in life Nature has destined for him; and to leave to his offspring, in later years, such a heritage of health as will make them bless his memory. Of course it will be thought by the foolish that all this talk of mine is a bit of special pleading for the system of Physical Culture with which my name is associated. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth.” – Eugen Sandow, 1902
