Those in the strength training world know all too well the character-building effects of training to your max. Therefore, you embody the necessary encouragement to those who are being bullied to stand up to the bullies. You can use your experience underneath the iron to speak out about bullying and help send a message to bullies on the harm they are doing. As strength training turns and shapes physical and mental fortitude, lifters are natural role models to show bullies how they can become better people.
