Look at me over here throwing stones from my glass elliptical at people trying to challenge themselves. Snickering from the stretching mats at people attempting to extend their comfort zone and make gains. I would feel a lot worse about hoping the worst for these people if they didn’t have another option. But we all have the option of lifting less weight, pushing ourselves less, convincing ourselves that one more rep isn’t necessary. Because the best thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from. And if you set the proverbial bar low, the cast iron bar won’t come crashing down on your dome piece. But if you want to aim for the Big Boy standard, you best not miss. Because if you do, I will be that guy with the video camera crying with laughter making sure you think twice before biting off more than you can chew.
