(Much easier to read all this on facebook btw... rather than finding the rest in the comments) --== Story Time With Iron ==-- "IT IS POSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE THE SUCCESSS YOU HAVE ALWAYS DREAMED OF, WHILST LIVING A WELL ROUNDED, BALANCED LIFESTYLE!" What a load of shit... If the level of success you have always dreamed of, is to only look better than 50% of a morbidly obese population, to be able to pay off your house in 25 years time, to work 9-5, growing someone else's business, then sure, I'm sure you can achieve all that with a well balanced lifestyle.
Now, I'm not trying to talk down everyone who lives the above lifestyle. There is nothing wrong with the above. I'm just trying to make a point. You can't dream about achieving amazing things, live in an average way and then expect amazing things to happen.
Amazing things do not just happen, people make them happen. And they usually only make them happen by putting in a shit load of time and effort into a very specific goal, for a very extended period!
With the Olympia weekend now upon us, let's look at some of the most improved athletes over the last few years, who are currently striving for greatness in the physique world and see if they have been aiming for balance in their lives also.
I would say that some of the most improved athletes over the last few years, have actually been striving for IMBALANCE, not balance, in their lives, in an attempt to be the best bodybuilders that they can possibly be.
In my opinion, I see the greatest level of improvement in alot of the athletes who travel over to Kuwait, to live and train with the Camel Crew at Oxygen Gym. Despite the hysteria around the 'anabolic chicken' over there in Kuwait and the secret drug protocols that they must have devised, which are transforming athletes by the dozen, it's not actually about that. The level of improvement in these athletes does not come from magical anabolics or revolutionary training techniques, it comes from putting these athletes in a box and forcing them to focus solely on their eating, training and sleeping. No distractions. *CONTINUED IN COMMENTS*
