I’m going to start this off with a bit of “constructive criticism” I received from my friend.
Adam Griffin is one the most handsome men in Denver (maybe you remember him from this video), and a close friend of mine. His feedback to me after watching the video below (in which I talk about relationships) was, “It’s a great topic, but you could have done without the comparison to family, the point stands enough on it’s own.”
My logic for including that in the video is this: There are many different kinds of relationships that we have. I say that the only one where there will be a nearly certain outcome, though, is that relationship we have with “the barbell.” My comparison to family issues was to simply say that you never know what can happen with our interactions with other people.
Either way, my message here is simple:
If you put in half of the effort with your training, rest, and nutrition, I feel you should expect half of the results.
However, if you truly dedicate yourself to doing those things well, your potential for performance and improved health is nearly unimaginable.
As always, I would love to hear your feedback on this stuff, guys.
