So you wanna be an Olympic weightlifter. I do too. I also want to be a fighter pilot, the President of the United States, and the Fittest Man on Earth. I would also like to be a dolphin wrangler, a Super Bowl champion, and Guy Fieri’s new sidekick on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Problem is, all of those things require an intense amount focus, dedication, and specialization—not to mention eons of time—to accomplish.
This is not a sport that can be taken lightly or approached with indifference.
