Yo, what’s up guys and gals? I don’t know about you, but I am HYPED right now! I just downed like five scoops of preworkout and I am ready to hit the gym like a beast! But before I do, I wanted to share with you a book I finished reading recently that I think you should check out too. It’s called “Cautionary Tales for Children” by Belloc, Hilaire. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “A book for children? That’s whack.” BUT WAIT. Don’t dismiss this book just yet. Let me tell you why it’s important and how it’s relevant to us lifters.

First of all, let me give you a brief summary. “Cautionary Tales for Children” is a collection of poems written in the early 1900s by Hilaire Belloc. Each poem tells a cautionary tale of a child who meets a tragic end due to their own foolishness or misbehavior. It’s dark, hilarious, and morbidly entertaining. But why should you care about a book like this?

Well, let me tell you. As lifters, we are constantly pushing our bodies to the limit. We load up heavy weights, we push until failure, we constantly strive for more. But sometimes, we forget that there are consequences to our actions. We forget to warm up properly and end up with a pulled muscle. We lift with bad form and end up with a serious injury. We neglect our diet and end up feeling like crap.

“Cautionary Tales for Children” is a reminder that our actions have consequences. It’s a reminder to always be mindful of our choices and to not let our egos get in the way. It’s also a reminder to not take ourselves too seriously and to laugh at our own mistakes (like that one time I dropped a barbell on my foot. OUCH).

So why should you read this book? Because it’s a fun, twisted read that will make you think about the consequences of your actions. It’s also a great conversation starter (because who doesn’t love talking about the latest book they read at the gym?). And who knows, maybe it will even inspire you to be a bit more cautious in your lifting habits.

And now, it’s time for me to hit the gym and put this preworkout to use. But before I go, I want to hear from you. Did you read “Cautionary Tales for Children” and what did you think? And most importantly, what did you do in the gym today? Let’s chat in the comments below!
