Hello friends of Bold & Determined.
Long time readers and new readers alike will all know that here at B&D we are big on strength, weight training and muscular development.
Recently a study came out that confirms what I can already see with my own eyeballs: men with upper body strength are less likely to support wealth redistribution and men without upper body strength tend to favor the nanny state.
Professor Michael Petersen said: ‘In all three countries, physically strong males consistently pursued the self-interested position on redistribution.
‘However physically weak males were more reluctant to assert their self-interest – just as if disputes over national policies were a matter of direct physical confrontation between individuals.
Obviously I don't truly care what the study says because I already know weak bodies tend to have weak minds.
I know it's true because I used to be a skinny twig and I used to self-identify as a liberal. When I started getting strong and started making more money I changed almost instantly and started to despise liberal nancy boys for what they are, Rats.
You see, friends, working out with weights and building a body will give you one very important thing: confidence.
It will give you confidence for two reasons. 1) You will know what you can achieve and overcome when you put your mind to it and 2) People will stare and give you compliments daily.
Weight training and bodybuilding can teach you how to overcome obstacles, how to achieve goals and how to push past your pain barrier. The gym can help you become more successful in life, in every way that matters.
When you are physically strong people treat you better, they smile for you more and they rush to do things for you. When you are a weakling you get spit on and that's why you like and identify with the nanny state so much, because you don't have to do anything for yourself and you are provided for.
But being provided for is for women and high estrogen males only. Men take, do and build. Men do not rely on others to be taken care of.
I was combing through some old photos the other day and what I found shocked me. I found some shirtless pictures of myself. If I had to use one word to describe those pictures, that one word would be “yuck”. I looked like 160 lbs of estrogen from years of eating macaroni and cheese instead of steak and drinking coca cola instead of water.
I hear this word “genetics” thrown around all the time as an excuse to be a slob. “If only I had good genetics boo-hoo”. Friends, “genetics” is an excuse to be a non-achiever.
Genetics don't mean anything. The estrogenic food you eat and the lack of activity is what makes your “genetics” bad. Anyone on earth can build a body but the longer you put it off the longer it will take to achieve.
It starts with four things.
- Yes, I will go to the gym minimum 3 days per week from now on.
- Yes, I will put in the hard work.
- Yes, I will eat better.
- No, I will never mumble another excuse for as long as I live.
Now I want you to walk to the mirror, take your shirt off and snap a picture. In a year or two or five or ten I want you to look back at that picture and laugh at how disgusting you used to look.
I always get a lot of flack on the internet from high estrogen males who like to tell me muscles are fake, it's not functional strength, girls don't like muscles blah blah.
They will say anything to make themselves appear better, but they won't actually do anything to improve. They will tell you degeneracy is normal and the best.
But I know the truth and you know the truth. Life is better as a strong man, in every way. Girls smile at you so much more, you have better posture, you have knowledge in your strength, and you have pride.
Rodney Dangerfield got no respect because he was fat. If he looked like Superman it would be a different story.
Do yourself a big favor, go and buy a gym membership.
Buy some iron for the garage.
Do some pushups.
But for God's sake, don't look like a slob for even one second longer.
