"Sometimes it's not about the DESTINATION, but about the JOURNEY itself"
I guess what you can say about this journey so far is it reflects the work put in over the days, weeks, months and years. A lot of sessions that I enjoyed, and equally as many sessions where I just had to go even though I was tired, injured, sore beyond belief or sometimes not there mentally to want to train. In the end that has taught me what true discipline and commitment means, and something anyone and everyone can apply to many things not just training. There will always be ups and downs but consistent effort through either side is what leads to long term results.
One thing that helped me the most get me to where I am today is not caring about how you look, and what this means is if you need to lose your tight midsection to actually go on a year long calorie surplus whilst making crazy strength and hypertrophy gains do it and do it many times. Cause in the end that's how you actually build muscle mass. Even though I do recall a lot of people nick naming me Buddha Belly (Yeah I still remember who you guys are hehehe) I knew it was what I had to do to get me closer to my long term goal.
I guess the best way to finish this post is in Arnold's wise words 😇 "A well built physique is a status symbol it reflects you worked hard for it, no money can buy it, you cannot borrow it, you cannot inherit it, you cannot steal it, you cannot hold onto it without constant work. It shows discipline, it shows self respect, it shows patience, work ethic and passion. That is why I do what I do" and on this final note I say goodnight Instagram I'll be back when the times right, for now I have one goal in mind of what I want to achieve... Peace and have a beautiful day 🤓
