    Bodybuilding, Powerlifting, and Strongman Quotes

    if there is a thread like this already let me know but i didnt see one. i like these inspirational and funny quotes from some of the worlds biggest and strongest. here are a few of my favorite:

    “Passion trumps everything.” Dave Tate

    "Strong people are harder to kill than weak people and more useful in general." Mark Rippetoe

    "The difference btw impossible and the possible lies in a man’s determination.” Tommy Lasorda

    The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you’re a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.” Henry Rollins





    add more please lol

    I bet that would be good to listen to on the day of your body building show or powerlifting meet.

    Or any competition.
