First – last week I told you that the 5 people who post the coolest picture on the StrongLifts Facebook page will receive a special gift. I’ve decided to wait until I got 100 pictures to select 5 winners, because some guys didn’t seem to know how to upload a photo. So here’s how to do it:
- Click here to go to the facebook fan page
- Click the like button at the top to gain access
- Go to the wall, click “photo” and then select “upload a photo”.
(Make sure you click the like button at the top first or you won’t see the button to upload a photo).
Here’s some of the stuff posted this week on the StrongLifts fan page:
What Do You Think of Will Smith’s Physique? FYI: there are guys from 187 countries reading StrongLifts. Many are white, but a lot are black, asian, latino, indian, etc. Add that I got North-African roots and my gf is Asian. Yesterday this guy posted racist crap about Will Smith, I banned him. Don’t be like him.
Regarding Will Smith’s physique, I think he looks great. What I think his secret is: it’s, the Scientology crap aside, obviously his mindset. Quote by Martin Wood: “Find it funny how a question like “what’s his secret?” evolves into people saying a load of negative things about the guy just from one picture. I’m guessing most of it is jelously and some of it people just find it hard to compliment people. Will smith came from nothing so he obv is dedicated in what he does, he’s not a platinum selling rapper and top actor from sheer luck. He works hard, and put this same frame of mind in training, u don’t get like that at 40yrs of age from luck.”
Are You Making Excuses? When I post “If its important to you, you will find a way, if not you will find an excuse.”, I’m very aware that some guys do have good reasons. And I’m frankly probably extreme in my insistence in training whether sick, sore, tired, injured etc. But I also know that most guys are even more extreme in how they skip workouts for just about anything, like a silly cold.
Good post by Jeff Bradbury “There’s a difference between excuses and reasons. Put simply, excuses are roadblocks we can remove or go around (very often put there by ourselves in the first place), and reasons are roadblocks we cannot. The tricky part is, very often you don’t know if it can be removed or avoided until you try, and try, and try, and try, and try.Obviously the main focus of Stronglifts is not on people who are physically unable to do the exercises. It’s not mainly a rehab site, and it’s definitely not aimed at people with negative attitudes. Mehdi doesn’t need to write a book about all the exceptions every single time he says something- what he said is extremely valuable and relevant for the vast majority of situations faced in life, at least in free countries. It’s not empty, though a person reading it may be.Greg, where’s the part about “…but I’ve done other exercises and have watched my diet while I heal up so I can be ready to go ASAP”? Maybe you are doing those things and maybe you aren’t, and I’m sorry for your injury, but if you leave that part out and simply complain and shoot down, you are pretty much asking not to be taken seriously. Don’t pee in the pool because you can’t swim.”
There’s more on the StrongLifts Fan Page which you can discover by clicking here (click the “like” button at the top to gain access). Ask whatever question you might have on the wall, StrongLifts fans will help you out. And remember to upload a cool photo, once there are 100 I’ll select 5 who will get a special gift.
