This is Why I lift

( Short Read). This post is about my reasons for lifting weights and why it’s important for you to have a why when it comes to fitness.

As someone who’s very active, I do different types of activities. Weight lifting, yoga, and sprints are some of the forms of exercise I’m familiar with. Out of all of them I’d say weight lifting is my favorite. I enjoy the feeling of moving heavy weights and having my muscles work hard.

Why do you lift? Some people lift for health purposes. Some people lift because they think it’ll help them get girls. I lift for several reasons that go beyond getting stronger. Some of those reasons include:

  • I lift because it gives me a way to channel my aggression
  • I lift because it gives me more confidence in my physical abilities
  • I lift because it brings me peace even when life is chaotic
  • I lift because I enjoy feeling healthy and full of energy
  • I lift because it keeps me young
  • I lift because I like being happy with what I see in the mirror
  • I lift because it makes my joints feel stronger
  • I lift because it makes me better in other physical activities

The main reason I lift is because I love lifting. It’s that simple. When you love doing something, you always find a way to do it. I’ve lifted when I’ve been under the weather. I’ve lifted after hectic days. I’ve lifted after getting little sleep. I obviously modified my workouts based on conditions so I can keep my body healthy.

The idea of this post is the importance of having a why. Having a why adds passion to what you’re doing. If you can’t think of a reason to work out, do it simply because you love your body . As you continue making exercise a habit, you’ll find additional whys. You’ll find the exercises that ignite your passion. Passion is so important. The people who achieve the best results are the ones who not only have talent and knowledge but also have passion for what they’re doing. Having passion for something you’re doing is like pouring gasoline on a lit match. Amazing things happen when you put passion into what you’re doing.
