10. "PATIENCE: Let’s be realistic here. You won’t drop two jean sizes in one day. You won’t lose fifty pounds in one month. You’re going to binge every now and then. You will go a day or two without working out. Your weight is going to fluctuate here and there. You’re going to try new techniques and they’re not going to work, You’re a human being. You’re going to fail. But nothing great is ever accomplished without a few obstacles. JUST KEEP GOING!!!!!”

11. “If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.” - Thomas Jefferson

12. "I’m sure you’ve all read the latest article on the popular muscle building sites about how to develop a fuller, thicker back with “these 2 NEW maximal hypertrophy igniting muscle shocking lifts!” The title lures you in, but when you get inside, you find a small man doing strange movements that make little sense and use almost no weight. They aren’t making him any thicker, and they aren’t likely to add slabs of lean mass to you either." - Jordan Martin

13. "If you can't explain the essence of your program to a three-year old in 60 seconds, its too complicated. I've trained with Olympic medal winners and I can assure you, they don't do anything mysterious, they just do the exercises better than we do." -  Maik Weidenbach

14. "Some people like to live without too much risk. They’re satisfied leading a safe existence. This attitude of caution infiltrates into their goals. Every successful athlete - or businessperson - enjoys taking calculated risks. You have to. Especially in the gym when you’re squatting 500 for reps and you can’t get one more but grunt out ten. Your nose starts bleeding, you fall into the rack and that’s set one." -Tom Platz

15. "There's more to life than training, but training is what puts more in your life." - Brooks Kubik
