The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Goal attainment

    Extraordinary expectations, require extraordinary efforts
    Extraordinary goals require extraordinary commitment and discipline
    Extraordinary achievements require extraordinary sacrifices
    PERIOD !

    Anything less than both sides of the above equations is just wishful dreaming.
    The same applies to the “process” of goal attainment. Every year I always have some bodybuilder, athletes, and regular clients chomping at the bit to get dieting and get in better shape. Then once they are in the middle of it all, it’s a constant whine and complain show to everyone around them. Suck it up already! You choose to do this. If you are going to compete, compete like a champion, not a whining little child. Too many physique competitors forget the enjoyment of the whole process, and the challenge of it. Instead they make it all about winning or losing. That’s a loser mentality from the get go.

    Get ready with the spirit and intent of a champion, or stick your thumb in your mouth so at least none of us have to listen to it. What’s my point? My point is its really easy to be excited about any project before you undertake it. That’s a no brainer. Being excited BEFORE you take on a challenge is easy, staying excited and inspired in the throws of the challenge is the stuff self-respect and champions are made of regardless if you get a trophy or not

    Good to hear Matt, best of luck in all your endeavors!

    BTW I know Ben Pak is your coach, and he's a great one, and that John Meadows is going to travel down to Tampa at some point and they are going to train and bounce ideas off one another. I talk with John often and think those 2 training together will be interesting and some good info could come from it. Keep us up to date on that whenever it happens.
