What’s so wrong with being strong?

Why is a six pack viewed as so great? Why do people revere someone simply because they have the discipline to diet for 8, 12 or 20 weeks? Why don’t we share the same respect for someone who has the discipline to train hard and consistently for 8, 12 or 20 YEARS?

It’s saddens and sickens me how little respect for strength our society has today. People could care less that you might have a world record if you didn’t do it while being shredded to the bone. For the majority of human history, strength was something that inspired awe and envy. When did this change?

If you tell someone you are training to be as strong as humanly possible they laugh at you. If you tell them you are trying to get “shredded” for summer or to look good at a high school reunion they applaud your effort. I say fuck that.

I’m not arguing people should become obese slobs in their pursuit of strength. Rather, we should view the dedication that strength, true strength, takes as much more laudable than being kinda hungry for a few weeks.
