After reading Forever (great job btw) I decided we need another book. This one would be a collection of 365 Wendlerisms to keep us lemmings motivated through the year. This would be an easy book, you’ve already written most of it… 365 pages, we read one page a day, put it down, then go hit the weights.
Day 1: Repeat the mantra: Training is not testing… training is not testing.
Day 2: I’m not in the weight room to jerk off to a bunch of different exercises and go nowhere. I go into the weight room to get strong.
Day 85: You can’t run one mile hard with a dude pupa obscuring your meat
Day 246: You have to keep inching forward. This is a very hard pill to swallow for most lifters. They want to start heavy, and they want to start now. This is nothing more than ego, and nothing will destroy a lifter faster, or for longer, than ego.
Day 327: Too many people major in minor things.
After we finish 365 days we start at day 1 again, ok maybe a deload for a week. This would be next to my coffee pot I guarantee, I’d read it every morning. Thanks again Jim from a long time 531er.
