…under what crazy ass circumstances would you go out and spend $250,000 for a Lamborghini, knowing full well it has the engine of a Prius underneath the hood? Sounds crazy, right? That’s because it is. Why not just drive down the street to the Lamborghini dealer and buy the real thing; having the best of both worlds—Looks and performance? What would be the point of shelling out the cash if you don’t get to experience the Lamborghini’s true horsepower and performance? Imagine even revving it up next to a Honda Civic. It’d leave you looking like a tool! I don’t know about you, but despite the car looking pretty with all the attention you’ll be getting, I’d be more excited about driving that bad boy and feeling its true power. That’s what truly completes the experience
Lifting weights strictly for muscular size and to look good aka bodybuilding is like a guy who loves to build show cars, but never wants to drive them.
Even though he puts in every ounce of effort and dedication into making that car look pretty, it will ultimately end up sitting at a garage or being displayed at a car show. It’s non-functional, and most folks wouldn’t even consider it a reliable means of transportation. Although amazing to look at, it just doesn’t perform!
Powerlifting is a lot like owning the $250,000 Lamborghini engine, but within the body of a semi-truck. It might not be displayed at a car show, but that thing performs. It has one purpose – to deliver as much manpower as fast as possible. To get as strong as possible, powerlifters have to eat whatever they can get their hands on to put on weight…
