Scribbled Shownotes

  • I’m watching Betting on Zero so I had to tear myself away from that to do this podcast
  • Also, I watched an ace YouTube video yesterday Irving Youngers 10 commandments of cross examination that’s inspired a future podcast for me
  • Today I’m talking about lifting weights
  • Lifting weights is all about persistence
  • And it’s about persisting past what everybody else is willing to persist past
  • To make your muscles stronger, you need to effectively damage your muscle fibres
  • You only do that by putting them under increasingly more stress
  • And by persisting longer than anybody else
