“The significance of a man is not what he attains but rather what he longs to attain.” – Kahlil Gibran
By Rich Lindbloom
When my son Greg was about 12 years old I took him to the health club with me on occasion. While possessing massive thumbs developed from hours upon hours of Play Station activity, he was neglecting other muscle groups. (Honestly, where would man be today without the opposable thumb?) I introduced Greg to the bench press, starting out with either 5lbs or 7.5lbs on each side. It wasn’t too long before he was pumping out ten reps – clearly on his way to becoming the next Charles Atlas.
