FUN is the key to everything. No boring maintenance liftting, repeating the same 3 sets of 10 at the same weight forever. That would make me want to stab myself in the eye. I like new routines, new exercises, new skills to learn, new equipment, new training methods. Workouts are total play time. I'm not trying to gain or lose anything. They're about having a good time. Though, it's funny. When you have a good time every day with exercise, you do tend to stay in great shape. You just lose that pressure, the feeling that you're not good enough now and the whole purpose of exercise is to change you into a more acceptable form. That's crap. If an external thing, a weight, a size, a look, a number, is driving the workouts, we do all kinds of terrible, boring, painful things to ourselves in pursuit of it. If we're just moving for the joy of moving, we stay much more in touch with how we want to FEEL and that opens up a whole new world, or it did for me.
