  1. Looking at something I’ll never obtain, because my job isn’t in sports so I can’t spend my entire day working out? Pretty to look at, yes; motivation, no.

  3. That’s a pretty lame excuse for not working out: two high intensity weight training sessions per week coupled with the proper diet and a couple of HIIT cardio sessions weekly will build a “new you”! This represents 30 minutes twice a week in the gym, and 15 minutes twice weekly on a track or trail. Get a physical and if all is ok, give it go.,you won’t go wrong. : )

  4. Thank you so much for assuming that I’m not currently working out, when I am–I’m currently doing the P90X workouts. (As great as Doug’s workouts are, I’m more likely to do something that doesn’t involve leaving my apartment, especially as winter approaches.)

    What I meant was that, while I do think the pictures look awesome, I also know that athletes can devote most of their time to practicing and working out, while I can’t. Which means I’m never going to be able to get as good of results as they do. If I want motivation, it needs to be more realistic.

  5. Brit: I play roller derby, just like Suzy Hotrod of the awesome tattooed body. We are not paid to play. We are not professional athletes. Most of us have full-time jobs and devote our limited free time to sculpting those skater muscles. To me, she is the ultimate motivation because she is just like me.
