What I like about lifting

Someone asked me today what I liked about lifting. At first I didn't know how to answer. I mean how can you describe the feeling of every part of your body being activated, being alive? After a brief pause, I said, well what's not to like, I mean you get to push your own limits and keep getting stronger, you know? With a blank stare in return, I realized that wasn't enough. Now as I sit here post workout and lift, here goes. Your breath, warm and strong is going in and out; your heart is pounding, sending sweet fresh oxygen to parts of your body you didn't even know existed; your muscles are throbbing to the beat of your heart and you are alive. Though matter how hard the resistance is of the weight, you're pushing stronger, harder. Nothing can touch you; you are a rock. In the simplest terms, it's like your entire body saying fuck you over and over again to the ones who believed in you the least. Only this time, you're in the driving seat and the resistance has nothing over you. And get this, unlike life- it's consistent. The harder you push yourself, the stronger you get. Always. #yougotthis#lifelessons #weightlifting #squats #fitness #fitnessmotivation #gym#girlpower #popfitness #pushups #crunches
