Author Steven Pressfield writes about the destroyer of all things.
He calls it a nearly unstoppable force that prevents you from achieving what you want.

Don't worry, I've got plenty of NEW "how to" articles, lifting tips, and training advice coming here soon (and a bunch of other cool new stuff too).
This is a new year and each of us has a clean slate right now. We're all excited about our training as the year begins, right?
