A Thousand Words

I love this illustration (which appears alongside the article on Tony Horton in Men's Health this month):

It perfectly captures all the stuff I love and hate about Tony: His look-at-me charisma, enviable fitness level, intensity, helmet hair, dental work, crazy-eyes, propensity for striking that schticky "X" pose, and overemphasis on isolation movements and rep schemes (e.g., 10-12 bicep curls per set) that are fine for bodybuilding, but not so much for developing a foundation of actual strength.

If I could draw like this, I could have scrapped the entire first three months of this here blog.
