The Barbell is Waiting

The barbell.

It lies there waiting to find out how hungry you are.

It is blind to how your day was.

It doesn’t care what is in your bank account or what your skin color is.

It disregards all of your excuses.

It just sits there, patiently. Waiting.

It wants to know if you will show up today. It wants to know if you will load up the plates and give it 100% or merely chat the day away with your partner and save yourself for the next workout.

What will it be? Strength or gossip? Power or rationalization? Dedication or half-heartedness?

You choose. A new PR or an extra few minutes to sit around?

And yes…

There is a correct choice.
