It’s not because they don’t want to get stronger. The more you lift weights, the stronger you get. No matter what the task is, whether people have to hold the weights and do reps for a minute or 10 minutes, they won’t lift those weights.
Why? They know success is along the road. They know from seeing all of those super muscular people what happens when you lift weights long enough. But why don’t they do that then? Imagine being able to throw a football twice as far or lifting some of the heaviest things with ease.
The reason that most people don’t lift weights because success comes “along the way.” The muscles don’t come quick. It’s a commitment. It’s easier to sit on the couch looking at people who are fit than to actually lifting the weights and getting fit.
Everyone is reluctant to change, and when we have to make a commitment to see results, most people will cringe at the idea. Don’t cringe and know what lies around the corner.
