How's this for motivation?

Do you know what you get from lifting heavy weights? I don't think you do. Otherwise you wouldn't be questioning why the **** you're doing this right now. You would be doing everything in your power to make sure you increase that weight the next time you work out. Are you familiar with the...

Dealing with demotivation; my issues

I have no problem finding motivation, no problem in working out and sticking to a diet. I'm not at my goal but I'm pretty close. The only thing that bugs me is probably having too much knowledge. My brain likes taking something and turning it extremely negative. For example, I'm naturally...

On the subject of building muscle fast, what would it be? I'm losing the motivation to hunt down bits of information all over the internet and learning bits at a time. Don't look down if you don't want to deal with a problem.
