Weights are ostensibly lifted with the body; they are first and foremost lifted in the heart. There exists a primal, latent spirit inside each young man’s proverbial heart that is unleashed and revealed in the strain of training with weights. The lifter reveals his heart when he attacks his lifts with malice and without fear. The lifter reveals his heart when he does not acknowledge discouragement at a failed lift. The lifter reveals his heart when he lifts instead of watching TV or playing video games. The lifter reveals his heart when he lifts years on end without ceasing in an effort to maximize his strength. Similar to the cardiac heart, the heart of resolve is strengthened and its capacity expands in proportion to the demands placed on it. Reveal your heart, reveal your greatness.
