The Top 10 Excuses for Not Training Heavy

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

I've done a number of top 10 lists over
the years, and they're always lots of fun.

Here's a new one.


10. "I don't want to get too big."

9. "I don't want to overload the Smith machine."

8. "The pec dec is broken."

7. "I'm sure that if I asked, they'd tell me that
heavy training is against the gym rules."

6. "I just want to look strong."

5. "I just bought some new jeans and I don't
want to grow out of them."

4. "A guy on the internet said you don't need to
do it. Light training works better. And he had a
really cool looking avatar."

3. "It's too old-fashioned."

2. "I don't want to be rude and hog all the plates."

and finally -- drum-roll -- the number one excuse
for not training hard and heavy --

1. "If I train hard and heavy, I might get too big --
and if I get too big I might be mistaken for a
gorilla -- and if I get mistaken for a gorilla I
might get put in the zoo -- and I don't want to
get put in the zoo."

So if you're wondering why most people avoid
heavy training, those are the reasons -- along with
the fact that they can't stand the hard work!

As always, thanks for reading and have a great
day. If you train today, make it a good one!

Oh, I almost forgot -- the July issue of The
Dinosaur Files

Yours in strength,

there are 100 who don't -- and they look like they
don't." -- Brooks Kubik
