I totally understand what kind of job you had. I work at a Wally World distribution center. Started in shipping, loading about 3 to 4 full semi’s a day. Didn’t know how much weight I loaded. Then switched to non conveyable. When in dog food, I’d stack about 60k/lbs in 12 hours. That was MUCH easier than shipping. My first year, I struggled. Then I talked to my bro-in-law, who is a personal trainer, found and I started to do good. I was taking creatine and C4 prior to work, and took an Animal Pak with UniLiver every break, while eating protien every 3-4 hours. This brought me to Muscle for Life and The Books. I’m in maintenance department now, and are about to join a gym. I’ve been wanting to get the Legion multi’s and switch to Legion supplements. I’m about done reading BLS, and are gonna start the year one challenge. I’ve aready bought BBLS and Shredded Chef. I get excited every time I think about my goals.
Armstrong’s public castigation prior to having his Tour de France titles stripped, and graver punishment of confessing about his doping days and winning ways, revealed one of his self-justifications. He researched the ethics of violating doping regulations, and decided after consulting a dictionary that he was not cheating, as he was not gaining any advantage over his competitors. Resorting to testosterone, EPO, other drugs as well as blood doping was a perceived need for Armstrong, who said, “I viewed it as a level playing field”1 … the everyone else is doing it defense that stopped working for most of us in kindergarten. [I strongly respect Armstrong’s accomplishments, dedication and commitment. My personal issue is competing in violation of explicit rules and claiming personal gain/glory achieved outside the confines of allowed practices, as well as character attacks on his “whistleblowers.”]
