I believe that bodybuilding is not just about sculpting the physique but also the mind and the soul (sorry if i sound like a hippie).
But seriously, I think that it is important not just to build muscles but to build solid characteristics and habits which make you a better person. What I am trying to define here is exactly what “class act” or “a real stand up guy” really is.
IMO, one should be the following:
I think these terms constitute the definition of every stand up guy out there. These are characteristics we all try to practice, but how many of us really are fulfilling all these requirements completely?
I think its important for every respectable man to try and reach these goals, and to try and be the only stand up guy in the crowded room. These characteristics are things that separate the men from the boys, and at the end of the day, everyone will know.
