it's the same this side of the bothnia as well. in strength sports there's very little money involved, especially in the coaching sector. my coach who's regularly at the WWC, EWC and wherever our lifters compete in gets nothing in compensation.

seriously though if I wouldn't have found weightlifting I probably would have stopped lifting a long time ago. I find the vapidness of bodybuilding and all this shit extremely high.

before you go all apeshit on me, I'm not putting down people who do it, I just personally find little in it to interest me.

also back on ibuprofen 2400mg/d fml

I kind of agree with this (if I understand you correctly).

 

You probably notice by my posts that I read a lot about the technical aspects and theories related to lifting, diet, mobility and that sort of stuff.

I have to keep myself intellectually stimulated (in lack of better explanation) in whatever hobby I have or I'll lose interest. Maybe a reason to why all the russian programs with intensity percentages and specific macro manipulations in my diet interests me.

 

I have a hard time to just "go and lift" because I simply don't find that approach very engaging.

IDK I just love to lift. I look like shit right now, at least shirtless... but I definitely enjoy lifting heavy shit for no other reason than seeing if I can lift more today than I did last week. Doesn't hurt that I can see the fruits of my labor outside in the mirror too. I love the technical aspects of it, if for no other reason than that I get to make fun spreadsheets.... but at the end of the day, it's about lifting heavy shit and being a big motherfucker for me.

I lift so I can eventually reach my goal:

Woke up early to train. Hit a DL rep PR. Came home and ate myself into a coma. Gonna take a power nap until the game starts. Good feels.

Of course the actual lifting is what I enjoy the most. I'm just saying that learning new stuff keeps it from getting stale. Its more that I can't identify myself with the meathead mentality, but I don't think I'm alone in that either.

I enjoy some of the technical and deeper aspects of lifting too since most of the time it translates into some technique revelation for me and I end up crushing a PR. At the core of it though I'm the guy that just enjoys seeing some huge weight move through nothing more than the human body and determination.

I'm sorry, but that is blatantly wrong, success is never guaranteed, there's a lot of luck in there as well.




Need to get going on my cut, but can't get my ass in gear. shog[1].gif

Luck is what lazy people call hard work and persistence.

Words of the young.

You can be the best and the hardest working, if you don't have luck, you are not going anywhere, believe me I've seen it more than once.
