Most men are in prison not because they’re strong, but because they were weak. I ended up going at the absolute weakest point of my life when I was suddenly addicted to an expensive drug and without the funds to pay for it. I had just committed an idiotic crime and I didn’t feel great about myself, especially because of the way I hurt my wife and family. My avenues of professional achievement were cut and I saw little chance of making anyone proud of me, but what I could do was work on my own body. I could watch myself grow and develop. And eventually even my disappointed family recognized the discipline and hard work I had put in.
The same goes for many of the men there. The ones that have killed have done so out of temperament problems and mental illness, or alcoholism and addiction. There are no super-villains in prison, just a bunch of sad cases. For the guys that could be termed “losers,” bodybuilding is a path towards perhaps their only success in life. After all, most prisoners have not succeeded in education or employment. They haven’t built families or bought homes. Many have never been on an airplane. Their life is entirely without any memory to be proud of.
To say that weightlifting in prison is good for self-esteem isn’t enough. It also builds willpower and dedication. It also gives men a sense of accomplishment. Most of the guys aren’t on juice; they truly have worked hard and long for what they have. That’s why weightlifting in prison is popular, and perversely, why the administration isn’t fond of it because they see it as the only activity a prisoner can do to make himself confident for the first time in his life.
