Building a Brick House Body
We all know the story of the Three Little Pigs where the first pig is lazy and impatient and builds a house of straw. It goes up very fast but, of course, it lasts all of two seconds because the big bad wolf blows it down with ease.
His brother, pig number 2, does a little better with his house of sticks, but it doesn’t last much either.
Luckily for these two pigs their brother pig number 3 built a brick house. He took the time to lay the foundation, built it brick by brick, made it strong and functional. And it’s the best looking house of them all.
If it wasn’t for this third pig, the wolf would be feasting on bacon and ham.
Of course when you grow up you don’t apply the moral of this story to fitness. We want the fastest way to a flabless body, even if it means building a weak structure and doing ourselves harm. We don’t care. Just give us the magic pill now.
But the lesson of the The Three Little Pig especially applies to health and fitness.
Building supremely physical supremacy takes time. It’s not going to happen overnight. Yes, there are some people who are gifted physically coming out of the shoot and don’t have to try, but these are few and far between.
Most of us have to be committed to change and be patient about it. But we know it will pay off in the long run because then we will have our brick house. And what we gain on the way is even more valuable than the house we’ve created.
There are no shortcuts to building a brick house body. You’ve got to do it right, with one gain built on another, just like a brick. The payoff is a better looking house, a stronger house and a safer house than any straw can build. You’ve got to think long term and see the big picture. Because that’s what’s going to last forever.
All these people with their straw houses and their quick fixes, are merely putting a bandaid on the problem instead of changing things permanently.

P.S. When I was a goofy kid, the Commodores’ song popularized the term “Brick House” for a well-built woman. Now it means a real, strong, permanent and functional body for both men and women. Get your steel house here…
