Down the road, in a gym far away
A young man was heard to say
“No matter what I do, my legs won’t grow!”
He tried leg extensions, leg curls, leg presses too
Trying to cheat, these sissy workouts he’d do!
From the corner of the gym where the big guys train
Through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain
Where the big iron rides high, and threatens lives
Where the noise is made with big forty-fives
A deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees
A very big man with legs like trees
Laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack
Chalked his hands and monstrous back
Said, “Boy, stop lying and don’t say you’ve forgotten!
Trouble with you is you ain’t been SQUATTIN’!” - Jeff “MADDOG” Madden

“My goal when I come in here everyday is to make sure that if someone beats me – its not because they outworked me!” – Layne Norton, Natural Pro.
“7 months straight. No stopping, no maintenance weeks, no cheat meals. Why? Because if someone beat me, I didn’t want to look back at any cheat meals and ask “what if”. I did what it took every single day, and THAT is why I looked the way I did. You either want it or you don’t. Just so you know, there wasn’t a day that went by in the last 8-10 weeks of that prep where I didn’t want just ONE extra yogurt, or 5 less intervals of cardio. But, I was not going to be outworked! I was NOT going to be denied! And you know what? It was all worth it” -Tommy Jeffers, Natural Pro

“I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts.
Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate.
I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.
The Iron is the best antidepressant I have ever found.
There is no better way to fight weakness than with strength.
Once the mind and body have been awakened to their true potential, it’s
impossible to turn back.
The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get
told that you’re a god or a total bastard.
The Iron will always kick you the real deal.
The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver.
Always there like a beacon in the pitch black.
I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend.
It never freaks out on me, never runs.
Friends may come and go.
But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.” - Henry Rollins
