Just saw this article and found it interesting.

Why gamers are a great fit at the gym

I was an avid gamer (I don’t play as much now due to other commitments) and everything in this article makes sense.

What’s funny is the first time I did 200 lb squat a “DING” popped in my head and laughing at myself thinking “Hmm that is +1 to Strength!”.
Did the same once I got to 1.5x body weight squat lol

If you was/are a gamer then this article applies to you!

Personally, I did replace my gaming with lifting weights and putting them down.
I used to play Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition back in High School!
That is how I even got the username that I use everywhere now.
Yes, I am a geek at heart and love it.

But I think, like the article points out, being a gamer helps me focus on my goals.
(Well I think my few years as a Machine Gunner in the USMC helped in that as well.)

So rejoice gamers! There is a chance for us yet!
