A little reading of interweb sports sites, especially those geared towards lifting, can leave one with the impression that if you're not totaling 1200 or higher after two weeks you should go home and take up knitting.

Nonsense, all you need to be able to commit to is getting off the sideline.

Here's a good article on being a "jock".
