Is this a discussion coming on?
Agreed. I have some very motivated friends. One has three kids and managed to become a black belt over the last few years. He doesn't lift weights but occasionally...and you wouldn't be able to tell he was a black belt by looking at him right now considering other stress he has been under. In fact, of all of my friends, I think only 2 or 3 even train regularly at all and none take it as far as I do. It doesn't make the rest who don't train any less motivated in life.
In fact, of the many people who post here I doubt very many live such a structured lifestyle as to hold their nose up at too many other people.
Maybe if the site were filled to the brim with NPC competitors and fitness models....
I am way more inclined to look at what someone has accomplished in the time they've been given overall and not just physically.
But the article would sit better if everyone shouting how great the article is looked like they lifted when wearing clothes. Otherwise, it holds the significance of simply bumping it because of what day it is.
They've turned the article into a re-running Rudolph cartoon made in the 60's.
