My entire career that I competed as a professional, I never missed a workout. If I was travelling or whatever it didn’t matter.. I never wanted to lose a contest because somebody outworked me. That’s the things you can control. I can’t control who came to the show, I couldn’t control what condition they were in But I could control ME. I could control my training, My diet, my discipline And my preperation. I didn’t wanna miss a workout and not give a 100%. I would go there and train so hard, it’s just the best thing, that’s my time. That hour and a half I’m in the gym, that’s my time. That’s just.. I close off the world and leave me alone. Anybody can do it if it was easy… Let’s go! I hear people say I don’t wanna do this.. If you’re not giving a 100%, guess what, you’re not gonna get there. Because you will get beat by somebody who is just as gifted as you are, who is giving a 100%. That’s always the case. I was so focused and determined.. I wouldn’t let anything interfere my workout. I gave it everything I had, and went beyond everything.. I gave more than I thought I was capable of giving. You know, if you give it everything you got and you know inside that you gave it everything you can .. You got no regrets. Now you have the ability to, but now it depends on how hard and how much heart you have. To develop that ability and move up to become a pro. So if you don’t train hard enough to stimulate muscle growth, you’re not gonna grow. Hard work was just a way of life, I didn’t know any better. To be the last man standing up there.. It’s all worth it. All that hard work and sacrifice .. That you put into, and then you’re the last one up there and you win it. It’s all worth it. What I found is usually the harder I work and the more sacrifices I made.. The sweeter that victory.
