From the floor I'm currently laying on trying to get some life back into my legs, here’s how I see it:
The fact that you’ve clicked this page today tells me you’re a smart guy.
Smart, AND dedicated.
I say all this because you're travelling right alongside me on the same self-improvement journey we call life.

You’ve probably got all the ebooks and fitness articles, training programs and maybe even sports science textbooks (and journal articles if you’re a real muscle nerd like me) piled right up to your eyeballs by now.
And, like me, if you’re multiple years deep in the “iron game”, then you’ve likely already created some of your own pretty incredible before-and-after transformations off the back of your own blood, sweat, and tears.
(Honestly, at this point you’ve likely forgotten more lifting knowledge in the last month than the average Planet Fitness-goer or P90X-attemptee has ever learned in their life.)
Gains, cuts, recomps and feats of strength that you should actually be really proud of, dude. (Few will talk about this.)

And that’s no small honour.
And if consider how tiny a fraction of the general population ever manages to set foot in a gym in their entire lifetime – let alone keep at it consistently for month on month and year on year?

That's why I’m all about giving props to my fellow iron warriors.
That's why I'll be the first to stand up and say...
