Good answer!

Grammatically speaking, the title of this thread is incorrect. It should be you're (or "you are"). Your is a term of ownership as in "your barbell".

No grammar correction in my thread! But, it does give me an opportunity to show these pictures:

Right now or prior to the 50's in the time of Grimek, Saxon, Reeves, Sandow, and the like. The reason for each is very similar.

Before the 50's, there was little to no commercialization of weight training ("the 97 pound weakling" by Charles Atlas) so what made sense is what everyone did. Use core exercises and lift progressively heavier weights. Right now we have an overabundance of commercialization, but we also have an abundance of quality places to learn about effective training. Plus the information on nutrition is much sharper these days. The time in between the 50's and before the advent of the internet was full of systems (Nautilus, Encyclopedia of BB, HIT, etc...) that claimed to be the end all be all of training with no one to put them in check.

In the end, though, right now is about the most interesting and effective time for reaching my goals.

How old are you?

What do you do for a living (and what have you done? (give me your Resume and CV now! (hah, jk))))

If you never had to work again, what would you be doing on a day-to-day basis to occupy yourself?

What would be your biggest tip or piece of advice to people attempting to balance work/personal life/training?

Software engineer and overall computer problem solver. My current job I got through my old CEO who knew someone who needed his manufactoring based company brought out of the technological stone age. Enter me.

I actually don't have a clue, and that's probably what bugs me most about my life right now. I'm a motivated person without an aspiration. Making more money or furthering my career isn't a "goal" for me. To quote one of my favorite actors in a totally underrated movie, "I don't think what a person does for a living necessairly reflects who they are." Free high five for the actor and movie

But, I've always been jealous of the fact that stay-at-home moms get to raise their kids all the time, be there for all the firsts and stuff. I don't know what my personal goals or hobbies would be, but they would likely be second to getting to watch my daughter grow up.

Find a woman/man that really loves and supports you, work hard early in your career to establish yourself, use that reputation to find a job that gives you the freedom you need, and always realize that until you receive a paycheck from your training, it's a hobby and should not run your life. Some of the biggest, strongest people I've ever interacted with give the same advice: the less time you spend contemplating your training, the happier you will be.
