10 old school strength training and lifting videos to motivate you

Hard to believe that even though we are in the year 2011 A.D., and that we have a zillion equipments at our disposal today to get stronger, the human race on an average is much weaker than say what it was even till only 25 years ago! Clearly we have become too spoiled thanks to the million choices that we have and have allowed man made comforts to make us weak, unlike what mother nature intended for us to be.

I think its high time that we get our butts off the sofa and chairs and do some strength training everyday.  We have enough opportunities to do so, and using weights is the best way to do it. No, you do not need the latest techno-cool lifting machine to do so. Old fashioned barbells, dumbbells are still the best way to go. So to motivate you I have compiled 10 old school strength training and lifting videos, that will show you how in the olden days guys got stronger. You will notice in the videos how all these guys not just are strong, but display radiant health too. That is what strength training and good, clean, stress free living can do for you. So without further delay go ahead and enjoy the following videos, and then go lift something heavy!
