Jacked is when you take your shirt off and your girlfriend or some random hussy's eyes pop out wide and she says “whoa!“.
Jacked is when every guy stares at you in the locker room when you have your shirt off.
Jacked is when you finish your set of deadlifts and the fellas in the gym come to compliment you.
Jacked is when people ask you to take your shirt off.
Jacked is when strangers call you “big man”.
Jacked is when people say “Do you workout 5 times a day??“
Jacked is when girlies touch your abs with confused eyes, thinking “how can abs feel this hard?”
Jacked is when you start off at a weakling 130 lbs or a fatso 300 lbs and mold yourself into granite.
Can you become jacked if you don't touch steroids? The answer is yes and no. You can't look like the magazines but you absolutely, positively can develop your body to become the most jacked nature will allow. To become the best you can possibly be. To have the body of a Spartan warrior, drugs are not needed. The body of a Spartan can be achieved with 3 things:
If you can eat the right food, train 4-6 times per week and be committed then you can achieve a state of jacked-ness.
The lean and mean Spartan almost looks like a normal guy with clothes on. Almost. But his face is lean. You can see that there is little to no tummy fat. He looks like an athlete. He looks like he can swim across the lake with no problems. He looks like he can do 100 pushups no problem. He looks like he can run around the block and not break a sweat.
The secret to becoming lean and mean like a Spartan is training like a warrior, not training like a bodybuilder. You need to hit the weights, and hit them hard, but you don't want to follow the baloney 1 body part per day workout plans you see in the magazines.
You don't want to play with triceps kickbacks, you want to work the exercises that give you the most bang for your buck. Your whole body needs to become strong, you need to be whole. Your body is connected, it is not just biceps, triceps, lats and quads. Your muscles are connected and you want to train all of those muscles, not just the ones with a cool name.
Is it easy to get jacked?
It's easier than you think it is. If you're doing the right exercises and not the bullshit you read about in the magazines then it becomes a hell of a lot easier. But it isn't easy. If it were easy everyone would look great instead of looking like poop.
That's one of the great things about looking great – you don't have too much competition. Especially when you aren't in the gym. Most people are skinny twigs or they are fatsos. You will catch the skinny twigs staring at your arms, chest and shoulders. You will catch the fatsos staring at your flat stomach. And you will catch all the smiles from the pretty girls.
Does being jacked actually help you get girls?
It's incomprehensible that some guys will actually ask this question and not know or understand that the answer is a big, fat yes. If you could change your skinny twig body or your fatso body for a Spartan body for a single, solitary day and see all the smiles you get from the girlies you would be in the gym every day after that to achieve your Spartan jacked-ness.
Do you lift just to get girls?
Just like every straight man on the planet you will start lifting for all the hot cooz. Over time your lifting takes on a meaning of its own and you start developing goals just for yourself. No broad is ever going to ask you if you deadlifted 500 lbs that day. No girly in some bar somewhere is going to ask you if you bench with 100 lb dumbbells.
It doesn't matter, these are goals that you set for yourself. This is you making the decision to push it to the limit and lift what you could only dream about lifting before. It's about setting goals, achieving those goals and then setting more goals and crushing them. It's about not being satisfied with average or good, it's about becoming stronger and better than you were the day before.
Jacked, fit, lean, spartan…whatever you want to call it. Becoming it is imperative to your betterment. Just because you are a skinny twig now or a fatty now does not mean you can't become jacked. No one starts out jacked, it takes work to get there. But the beautiful thing is that anyone who wants it, truly wants it, will become it.
You may have been living your whole life making fun of the meat-heads and the gym-rats and the little dicked juice-monkeys but they know something you don't know – strength. Pride of accomplishment of the body. Perseverance. Pushing through pain barriers. Accomplishment that you can see with your own eyes.
From the skinniest twigs to the fattest fatsos, all who have become jacked will say the same thing…….
