I just finished reading “As You Like It” by William Shakespeare and let me tell you, I did not like it. I don’t know what all the fuss is about, but it’s not for me.

The play centers around Rosalind, the daughter of the banished Duke Senior, who falls in love with Orlando, the youngest son of a deceased nobleman. The two flee separately to the Forest of Arden, where they each encounter various characters and comedic situations.

Now, if you’re wondering why I’m reviewing a Shakespeare play on a blog about lifting weights, let me tell you. This play might be a good read for those who need a break from the rigors of training. You’re probably used to lifting heavy, grunting, and sweating, so why not take a break and read something whimsical and light-hearted?

But let me tell you, the characters in this play aren’t lifting weights. They’re prancing around, speaking in riddles, and making fools of themselves. There’s nothing here for a real lifter, just a bunch of weaklings running around in the forest.

But in all seriousness, the reason why “As You Like It” is significant is because it explores themes of love, gender roles, and societal structures. These are all concepts that we encounter in our daily lives, as we navigate relationships, societal norms, and expectations. And just like how lifting weights can help us physically and mentally, reading can provide us with insights and perspectives that we might not have considered before.

So if you’re looking for a distraction from the gym, go ahead and read “As You Like It,” but don’t expect to find any relevant information on lifting weights.

That’s all for today’s post. Let me know in the comments what you thought about “As You Like It,” or what you did in the gym today. As for me, I’ll be back in the gym, doing what I do best – lifting weights and staying strong.
