It’s one of the most coveted results of any males’ fitness routine; becoming strong and ripped at the same time. Unfortunately, at times, this goal can seem to contain competing objectives.

Winter-time blues and the high of the New Year is gone. Monotony. For me, this is one of the hardest things about life. Even when you "have it all," a great job, love, health, fun, etc., there's still a lot of monotony if you're living a real life.
It should be no surprise that for almost every physical activity you do, your performance will improve as you increase your strength to body weight ratio.

So your goal is not to just become strong, but to maximize your strength compared to your body weight.
