“The weight room isn’t just a place to train. It’s a temple. It’s a Zen-like place on symbolically higher ground where we bring our hopes, dreams, and aspirations.
It’s where we commit to grueling personal discipline and the continuous challenge to improve ourselves by putting five more pounds on the bar, performing one more rep, putting on another pound of muscle mass, dropping another pound of body fat, or understanding ourselves better.
If we’re serious, it’s a way of life.”
– Dave Tate, Raising the Bar
