Success.

It's what all athletes strive for, and what fitness buffs are constantly working toward. Whether you have certain weight-loss goals, max weights to lift or just overall fitness in mind, succeeding is something everyone tries to do.

For me, at least, motivation is a big part of my own personal successes. It gives you a foot to stand on when you just don't think you have anything left.

In my web surfing this week, I came across arguably the most epic piece of motivation yet.

A red panda; doing pull-ups. Yes, you read that right. In fact, you can even watch the video below. Mobile users watch here: http://bit.ly/12sV33s

This little guy powers right through the workout asked of him by his trainer, and I, for one, am impressed.

More than just a cute video of an animal doing tricks for treats, this tiny panda has helped me to be just a bit more motivated when it comes to my upper body workouts.

If he can do it, so can I.
