Who’s ready to get AMPT?! If you’re looking for a book to get you all fired up for battle, then look no further than “On War — Volume 1” by Clausewitz, Carl von. This book is jam-packed with tactics, strategies, and stories from some of the most epic battles in human history. And let me tell you, reading it on preworkout is like pouring gasoline on a fire!

This book is not for the faint of heart. It’s not a light, breezy read. It’s a heavy, dense tome that requires your full attention. But if you’re willing to put in the work, the payoff is huge. Clausewitz was a brilliant military strategist, and his insights into the nature of war are still relevant today. In this first volume, he lays out his famous concept of “friction” — the idea that war is inherently messy and unpredictable, and that the ability to handle uncertainty is what separates the great commanders from the mediocre ones.

Now, you might be wondering why I’m reviewing a book about war on a fitness blog. But hear me out: there are a lot of parallels between war and lifting weights. Both require discipline, preparation, and mental fortitude. Both involve pushing through discomfort and pushing yourself to your limits. And both are ultimately about facing challenges and coming out stronger on the other side.

So if you’re looking to get amped up before hitting the gym, I highly recommend giving “On War — Volume 1” a read. It’s not an easy book, but it will challenge you and force you to think deeply about what it means to push yourself to your limits. And at the end of the day, that’s what we’re all here for, right?

In closing, I want to invite all of you to share your thoughts on this post and on what you did in the gym today. Did you try a new PR? Did you finally nail that tricky lift? Let’s celebrate our victories and learn from our setbacks together. And remember: the battle is never truly over — we’re always fighting for progress and improvement!
