"A child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. It's only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and overthink and hesitate." --Steven Pressfield

That is the Day People. Trust me. It will be enough.
There will come a decision at Some point in this workout. You will not have a choice about that...That was MY choice....You will either quit, or you will become better...You will not walk out the door the same person who walked in.
Who walks out of that door is YOUR choice...Just know that it is one you will need to live with for the rest of your life. Quitting is habit and it tends to bleed into other things. You can stop that right now.
But that decision better be made, WELL before you approach the barbell.
