What are "meathead problems"? Allow me to list but a few of them:
- Unable to do most leg exercises with two legs (leg extensions, leg curls, standing calf raises) because you've maxed-out on the machine's weights.
- That odd look you get when you spot a fellow lifter with two fingers on each side of his bench press.
- Lamenting how slow the water fountain is at cooling the water (because you're always there between sets).
- Griping about how your grip strength is slightly behind your dumbell trap shrug holding requirement. Now you need straps, you wimp.
- Having to improvise on your workouts / breaking your sets into novel groupings just to make sure you're absolutely hitting yourself as hard as you can for maximum growth.
- When you actually hit your second wind during cardio and realize you could do this for hours, much to the chagrin of those around you. Hello economy of motion!
- Performing tasks that seem easy to you, then suffering the realization that "hey, not everyone can boulder straight up 20+ feet and haul themselves over an edge like an action movie stunt".
- One of the only real exercises that pushes you to the point of breaking anymore is dead-lifting.
- Having to scrutinize labels for carb, protein and healthy fat content, while not paying as much attention to "calories".
- Planning your entire week solely around workouts - not work or time off, or recreational activities. Can. I. Get. In. One. More. Workout?!?
Food for thought on this awesome Wednesday. :)
