Why be strong?
By birthright every single man and woman deserves to build up within themselves a great degree of bodily strength. To develop a large amount of vital power. There is much more to life then the pursuit of strength. Few people will devote their life to the ideal, to become the perfect man. However, every man must put forth an effort. Here you shall find out why.
The stronger you are the more energy you have inside, when that strength is built in a real way through proper exercise and a sustained effort over time. Vital power is the fire inside that sustains you and allow you to push beyond the levels of a normal human being. The building of strength is but one piece of claiming vital power but know that without strength you can have none.
When you are vitally strong and have built up a huge reserve of power, you must keep going. There is no point at which you can stop and say that you are done. It is an ongoing journey but with each new step you take the rewards will become greater.
After all you never know when you will need it. Should some calamity arise do you want to know that you have done your very best to prepare for whatever it is? What if your own life or the life of someone you love relies solely on the strength of your back and arms? Do you have the conditioning to escape certain death? Pray, that you never need it, but if you do, be confident knowing that it is there.
A great degree of strength gives you resiliency physical and mental. The health that courses inside your muscles and veins can only help to ward off injury and illness. The ability to bounce back from the worst will be yours, and so will be the ability to rebuild. Many of life’s stressful situations fall by the wayside because they become less important.
The bigger events can be dealt with and you will face them with a strong base of fortitude.
No matter what you do, you want to be healthy, right? Health cannot be had without strength. The stronger you get, the healthier you can become as well. Strength is but one side of the pyramid, but built along side with the others will give you a marvelous constitution.
The old-time strongman, George F. Jowett, said it best, “The word Strength fascinates me. It squares my shoulders and clenches the fist that drives me onward to a bigger purpose. Strength is Health. One cannot exist without the other. They are inseparable forces that bind the body to direct purpose. If you lack strength your body will collapse and double up like a jackknife.”

You will look good and feel even better. Part of being a man is to seize this opportunity of life and become proud of who you are. This holds true for the ladies as well, but men have a history of their manliness lying in their strength. After all, why do you think we challenge each other to see which is the stronger man. Part of being a real man is being able to protect your woman from any danger that awaits. And to sweep her off her feet, literally.
Why would you not want to be strong? There is no reason, no benefit to do so. Becoming a strong man does not degrade your ability to accomplish anything else in life. In fact, by virtue of giving you more by way of vigor than you put in, you can accomplish more. To help ensure a long, healthy life you owe it to yourself to step into your rightful attainment of strength.
After all, once the dust has settled, you can look back and be amazed at just how far you have come. The time will pass anyway, so you might as well spend it becoming stronger. After looking back, you’ll look forward and keep going.
Weakness is a Crime, Don’t be a Criminal
The foregoing title is taken from the father of physical culture, Bernarr MacFadden. You have set upon the path of acquiring the greatest of strength. For that you should be applauded. Since weakness is a crime you are likened to a law enforcer. Your example will inspire and guide others to follow.
Strength obtained in the proper way, will build up all qualities of health and life in balance. You are doing one of the best things you could to ensure a happy future.
Choosing to be weak is a disgrace. And it is just that, a choice. We are all different. Some are born naturally strong. Others are not born that way. There is no shame is starting from zero, in being a weakling. But there is shame is remaining that way.
Rudyard Kipling said, “We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse.” I don’t have the time, I don’t know how, I can’t do it. Strike these from you vocabulary. There’s no excuse.
Properly done strength training does not take a lot of time. In fact, done right it will take less time than improper training. You don’t need expensive equipment. If you have nothing else you can still use your bodyweight, which you should still use even if you do have all the greatest tools.
Learning how is simple. In fact you probably already know more than you need to train. If you don’t, it is easily remedied. Most important to just get after it.
