You have the ability to take a task and see it through to its completion. Being strong is a sign that you will weather the storm for not days but weeks, working to see the outcome of your dedication
In my humble opinion it appears to me that we have drifted into a marketing controlled world of exercise that has lost focus on looking strong and powerful, and moved towards an existence of toned and attainable. It’s easier to drop your body fat levels and carry minimal muscle mass then it is to not only be strong but also fit. Developing Strength takes time and work. It takes a lot of hard focused work, utilizing movements that require a lot of attention to detail and correct execution. You simply cannot perform the same ADHD training program four times a week and see the results that you desire. “Being strong is a sign to the world around you that you are dependable and steadfast”. You have the ability to take a task and see it through to its completion. Being strong is a sign that you will weather the storm for not days but weeks, working to see the outcome of your dedication. Strength is the characteristic of great men, and it’s this characteristic that needs to be reestablished in the world of fitness training and exercise. It’s in our DNA to want these things even if the social programming that we are blasted with everyday works to blunt this belief. If you think that this isn’t that case just look at the natural reaction to the things that we see. Take the “Twilight” movie; it was the belief that the main characters were two eternal lovers. The emotional girl and the aloof unattached male that cloaks his masculinity in mystery, but then comes the young character to the scene that plays a protective wolf. When the actor removes his shirt for the first time during the film the women in the theater gasped and cheered. No longer was there mystery, there was a man that would take the shirt from his back to save the damsel in distress, and in doing so revealed a body that was cut from stone, a physical representation of dependability and strength for all those in the audience to identify with, proving that it is an instinctual response not just a psychological one to be attracted to strength.
