I was having a chat with a friend a few weeks back and he commented that my precious home gym will be lying in my living room collecting dust sooner or later.
If he would have said that a few years back I would have given him a snide remark as a reply and we will no longer be friends.
But I just looked at him square in the eyes and told him I have been training consistently for about 5 years now. Having shared that little detail with him, does he think that my barbell would collect dust?
He changed the subject after that. Rightfully so. I have enough ammo to put bullets the size of a bowling ball through his body if he so choose to continue with the conversation.
You see, people who do not train consistently do not have the right to make any kind of statements about my training lifestyle.
People whose idea of training revolves around a few sets of benchpress and bicep curls do not have the right to make any kind of statements about my training lifestyle.
People who have the audacity to say they don't need to train legs because it could grow big too easily (seriously... you gotta be shitting me!) do not have the right to make any kind of statements about my training lifestyle.
You do not deserve to make any kind of condescending statements about my training when you:
Do not bust your ass each day trying to achieve some kind of PR (be it reps or weight).
Do not have the discipline and self control to not go overboard when you have your nights out.
Do not have the discipline and self control to stick to a schedule.
Do not spend a bit of time and/or cash to gain some knowledge about training and nutrition.
So until you walk the talk, you can shut your stinking trap and leave me be.
