I was in my youth group today, and we talked about lent, and then later that day I went to go read my history book and it talked about Carnival and lent. I also learned about Carnival, which sounds like modern day marty gras. This Carnival begins after Christmas and lasted until the start of Lent, the forty day period of fasting and purfication leading up to Easter. During Carnival it was a time of great indulgence when heavy consumption of food and drink were the norm. It was a time of intense sexual activity as well.
I was thinking about all this, and I haven't been lifting for long and not long enough to go throgh any kind of diet through Lent.
My question really is anyone here that is religious that has gone through Lent honestly while working out. I was thinking that I would set up my fast so it went with Lent which would be 6 weeks long. I could also set up a bulking diet before Lent.
Oh and lots of sex with my girlfriend from Christmas tell Lent.
Conclusion: Jesus was a body builder and he secretly did this so other people would follow along...Jesus wants you to get big and cut for summer.
