The New Rule for Advanced Lifters & The Fitness Teeter Totter

The New Rule for Advanced Lifters & The Fitness Teeter Totter

Why working out every other day has massive advantages, the problem with virtue signaling, how to choose your trade-offs for a fit – but not restrictive – life, and what your social media says about your relationship commitment.
ON OUR MINDS
A quote from Dr. Laura, "life is a trade-off," hit home for me. If we start thinking about our current level of fitness as a choice we've made (or a trade-off for something else) instead of just the result of bad luck or an aging body, then we'll have way more control over our circumstances.
The truth is, when we're not as strong, lean, or muscular as we'd like to be, it's usually because we've chosen to prioritize something else. Even if we *think* we haven't. So is there a way to put the emphasis back on the goal? And is the goal even worth it given the trade-offs or sacrifices?
