As I make my journey through the world of strength training I consider myself fortunate to have Steve Shafley as a mentor.
Today, because I am a dork at heart, I made a PowerPoint slide depicting the various factors that I, as a drug-free non-competing hobbyist weight lifter must balance in order to gain strength / muscle mass etc.
I sent the slide to Shaf as I want to bounce the content off him to ensure I am not totally out of my mind. Shaf, who has a keen grasp of what works, concurs with my slide content and then sends back his own slide which depicts what people want and what the fitness industry markets.
I found my back and forth with Shaf to be so funny I decided to share it with my blog-goers. Enjoy!
