    "Let me tell you a little secret about your training: nobody cares. Your wife or girlfriend may pretend to care, but she definitely doesnít. Your friends donít, your mom, dad, and siblings donít. Even your dog doesnít care. So why train? Iíll tell you why: because you care."

    Good article. I've found it's pretty important to tune out everyone else in the gym aside from the occasional polite bit of conversation.

    Some really good nuggets.
    1. Not every rep has to be perfect, its not gymnastics being scored by judges. Sometimes you just have to move the damn weight.
    2. Really enjoyed the "BE SOMEBODY!". i will remember that next time I think about lightening up a set. i will imagine Rip yelling at me across the room.
    3. Absolutely true that no one cares about my training. Or my job. or anything else. Everyone is concerned with themselves, and that's ok. I use that to my advantage in many situations.

    Great article, thanks Carl. Really enjoy your writing.

    I really enjoyed this article. I've followed the website and largely practiced the methods here on and off for over a decade, and there have been a ton of really great articles and videos. This one stands out as one that I will revisit periodically and share with some friends who can benefit from it.

    Oddly enough, I train at home and don't think that I give a shit about anyone seeing me perform the movements, but there are still a lot of great points that speak to me and I really like Carl's writing style. Nicely done, sir.

    Actually, my wife does care and she yells at when when I don't train. It's true she doesn't care how much I lift and complains that I'm lifting too much, that it isn't natural. But she notices the improved state of mind, emotional health and general greater "usefulness" (get the honey-do list completed) that comes when I train.

    Same here but I would add another great article by Carl that I read and re-read regularly:
