Success is reported more often than failure! Not because success happens more often but only because people rarely want to publicize their failures in strength training. It is almost the opposite to everything else. If you are shopping for a certain type of product, for instance, there may tend to be more negative reviews than positive ones, leading you to the false conclusion that the product is no good. But in reality those who have not had problems with the product are too busy going about their merry way to report on it. However, when a product fails, it is deemed the fault of the manufacturer.
I love this analogy. This is soooo true.
This reminds me of the entire 5x5 training system as being the BEST BEGINNER ROUTINE FOR EACH AND EVERY SINGLE BEGINNER ON THE PLANET
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
