This is my barbell. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My barbell is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My barbell, without me, is useless. Without my barbell, I am useless. I must lift my barbell true. I must lift more weight than my competition who is trying to beat me. (altered version of Rifleman’s Creed)
