A lil’ motivation for ya: Extract from Jim Wendler’s “Beyond 5/3/1”
I’m busy reading Jim Wendler’s “Beyond 5/3/1” and this extract hit home like a tonne of bricks:
One of the easiest ways to spot a novice lifter, in both training and attitude, is their complete breakdown after a bad workout or a bad month, or even a bad couple of months. The experienced lifter knows that the clouds will break and he keeps pushing. The weak will complain and try to blame the Butt Wink for their squat or their lack of proper supplementation. The strong, who know that success is just around the corner, will persevere and push harder and push smarter. I also believe that your attitude towards training shows itself in all aspects of your life. Those who understand that success does not happen overnight, that it is earned through work and struggle always come out on top. The success you earned through hardship is always the sweetest. No person with dignity and a soul wants a handout – they want to earn what they have.
So true. Spoken like a true wiseman
