Politics Provides Weightlifting Impetus

I talked to a client today. He had stumbled across my blog and read the article about my weightlifting. He told he me he was amazed at how much I lifted and how much I had increased in a short period of time. "How do you do it?" he asked.

I said, "Simple. I'm a news junkie and love politics, but I get so upset everyday just reading about the candidates and all the lies they are telling, plus the incredible distortions and plain old dirty politics, that by the end of the day when I head for the gym I am so ticked off that my adrenlin has reached massive dosage levels within my body. And, it is amazing what adrenlin can do. Weights that I previously thought were way beyond my capacity (at my age and weight) are now quite easy."

By the way, weight lifting offers you a great sense of accomplishment when you can compete head-to-head with a 20 or 25-year-old without being offered or requiring any handicaps whatsoever.
