Well, I'm motivated now.
It was a nice video, but why is there such emphasis on running and skinny people willing them selves to take another step? It takes a great deal of motivation to get under a bar loaded with weight heavy enough to staple you to the ground.
Where is the video of a person stepping under a heavy bar and grinding out a personal record squat? Or detailing the will power and motivation it takes to develop serious strength. The boring, week upon week of grueling training and the daily painful aching that someone like Rich Froning or Matt Kroczaleski endures in their pursuit of a goal.
Perhaps strength sport training is simply feared or not understood and running is more of a universal activity. I have nothing but my own experience with which to guide me, but I believe the man with a 200+ lb snatch or a deep 500+ lb squat has as much reason to be celebrated as he who runs a long distance.
