How to know if your training hard enough?

When I’m in the gym I do 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps. 3-4 exercises per muscle. I wait 1 minute between sets and do supersets once a week per Muscle, and dropsets once a week per Muscle.

Question Who motivated you to get into lifting?

What motivated you to get into lifting? For me, it was probably my gym teacher in HS, but beyond that, there's been tons of other influences on me. Who got you to get into lifting?
