Activation Costs

Enter Wikipedia:

In chemistry, activation energy is a term introduced in 1889 by the Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius, that is defined as the energy that must be overcome in order for a chemical reaction to occur.

In this article, I propose that:

After proposing that, I'd like to explore:

Every action a person takes has an activation cost. The activation cost of a consistent, deeply embedded habit is zero. It happens almost automatically. The activation cost for most people in the United States to exercising is fairly high, and most people are inconsistent about exercising. However, there are people who - every single day - begin by putting their running shoes on and running. Their activation cost to running is effectively zero.

The Ultimate Chesticular Routine – A Recipe for a 3D Chest

On Musings of a Dick

I try to stay away from writing about the actual specifics of training and bodybuilding. There's enough shit on T-Nation, Bodybuilding.com, and the like. Why waste time re-inventing the wheel?

Instead, I usually write about client psychology and behavior. There's a serious dearth of that in the industry. Let's create more shit around that.

There's one exception to this, and it's a place I can add a ton of value – building a 3D chest.

Everywhere I look, there are people who start lifting with Starting Strength and come out looking like centaurs.

On the contrary, I've taken my chest from something was sadly concave and turned it into my best body part. Really, the first thing that people notice about me is that my chesticular region might have its own gravitational pull.
