If you want to move beyond average you will need to lift some heavy iron with intensity. You will have to change your mind set and stop thinking like an average man and start thinking like an above-average man (or woman although this thread is directed at why men won't lift weights). Start right now and never again allow yourself to become flabby and plump or skinny and weak. Flabby and plump is for the average Joe. By choosing to eat and train in the Paleo way you have dedicated yourself to mental and physical betterment, get busy, get disciplined and get results.
