I’m really not that strong. I don’t bench a ton of weight or load up my deadlifts with plates. I’m not squatting more every time or trying to reach new maximums. My curls aren’t anything crazy, so my biceps aren’t massive like some guys. I took a picture the other day and thought they looked strangely thin. Maybe it was the camera angle. But despite working out almost every day, I’m not the bulging, massive dude rippling with muscles like the guys I used to watch (and sometimes aspire to) on fitness videos. I’ve got some muscles, but I’m actually pretty lean. That’s fine with me. I prefer it, honestly. Life isn’t all about the gains.
