It’s only a couple of days until Christmas and regardless of what you celebrate, I want to wish you a very happy holiday holiday season. It’s funny, this is the time of year when I go to a holiday party I get the  Oh, I probably shouldn’t have this dessert around you – you’re a FITNESS GUY. It’s happened dozens of times, and I can’t help but laugh.  (as I have a drink in one hand and a plate of dessert in the other) Are you kidding? This dessert is awesome – I’m on my second serving! Half the reason I exercise is so I can get away with more junk food in my diet without negative consequences. And the other half is because I want to stay physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy so I can live an awesome, capable life. Strength training is the best and most efficient way to hit all three with only one stone.

Yeah, I know I’m fighting a losing battle and some things are inevitable. But I’m sure as hell going to do my best and go down swinging. In the (somewhat morbid) words of a good friend and LSFW member I came to LSFW because I want to live life to the fullest, and then die instantly at a ripe old age. If you think exercise is exclusively about fat loss, getting abs, or being as sweaty and sore as possible, with the utmost love and respect, you’re completely missing the mark. Fat loss, more energy, more muscle, better mental health, better sleep, less aches and pains… the list goes on – They are all side effects of taking care of yourself with things like eating (mostly) quality foods and exercising a reasonable amount. As you’re spending time with those you love this holiday break and starting to think about your 2024 goals (dare I say resolutions), I want to share with you my two favorite quick videos of all time when it comes to exercise as a bit of inspiration. The video above does a tremendous job of putting your health into perspective. And if you can get through this video below without tears, you have a heart of stone. I plan to be the elderly gentleman in the second video. What do you want to accomplish in 2024?
