We read a post on Facebook yesterday with a guy asking an interesting question. He asked “What’s the best way to get over a breakup?” There are over 250+ answers ranging from eat gallons of ice cream to line dancing at a cowboy bar in Norco.
Our answer? The barbell.
The barbell is an amazing teacher. It shows you patience, perseverance, and strength to name a few. The biggest thing we love about it is that it makes you vulnerable. It breaks you down to just, you. You can feel your breathe, your muscles, and more importantly you feel alive. This is the best thing for people going through a struggle – because it brings you back to the most important person in the world – you. It will build you up and make you stronger physically and mentally, guaranteed.
An amazing quote I heard once is that the barbell doesn’t care. It doesn’t care if you had a bad day at work. It doesn’t care if you just broke up with your significant other. It doesn’t care if you’re the fittest person on Earth. At the end of the day it still weights 200 lbs.
If you know, the power of the barbell, you know. If you don’t know, you need to. See you in the gym.
