Pain = Gain

I always laugh when I see people in a gym.

Please re-read the wording of that sentence carefully. Actually, let me be even more concise since they aren’t any visual attached to this journal entry.

I always laugh when I see people in a gym doing nothing.

What’s the point of going? Why did they spend good money on a membership? They could’ve stayed at home for free for all the benefit it’s going to have.

Anyway, I’m ranting…

Recently I had someone ask me for a sample of my typical routine. I don’t believe in working out for hours at a time. If you’re NOT punishing yourself quickly and severely, you’re being inefficient.
