Bodybuilding means the whole life for me. Thanks to bodybuilding I can live the life I’m living now. …and I am who I am… When I was 13 or 12 years old, I ran away from home at night…because I wanted to train in our basement. I had it forbidden from my parents. So bodybuilding has accompanied me my whole life until now. Although I don’t admit it sometimes…
Bodybuilding is me! It’s my life. Bodybuilding made me stronger, more resistant to everything…to stress, to life… And I hope that bodybuilding didn’t change me to worse. I think it prepares me for the life. Moreover it made me stronger and maybe a better person. Bodybuilding took me nothing at all, it gave me a lot… The only thing it took from me is a word “impossible” from my vocabulary. I’ve never wanted to be a bodybuilder. When I was young I wanted to be “just” the best in the world and no matter what sport or dicipline! I made my dreams come true… completely. I had never hoped that I would be world champion or professional. I fulfilled my every hope perfectly. What I really enjoy about bodybuilding are workouts, surpassing myself… I don’t watch my opponents. I am looking for new limits, challenges… I think that I will never get rid of it. I would not sacrifice my family… but I was willing to sacrifice anything in the past! Bodybuilding makes everyone stronger. It makes you better person too. Of course it depends on everyone… But when a person starts to suffer, you take food from him, force him to train hard…
everyone reaches the bottom. And everyone get to know himself. How tough he is or isn’t. I think it helps in normal life, too. As I said: The only thing it took from me is a word “impossible” from my vocabulary. That’s what I’m trying to do in my life. It helps me and it works… The most beautiful things are the feelings which it brings. The results, perfect body, perfect shape… yes it’s nice.
But the feelings when you have a legday in two days and you feel like you will have graduation. And then when you do good workout the feelings which you have from it… are the best. The most painful thing about bodybuilding is diet. But the pain is not that you can not eat some sweets. It’s being mean to people that you love. When you’re in training you can control yourself.
And be quite nice to others. But then you come home and you vent your anger on your family. Or you’re not even able to talk. So your closest family suffer because of you. It probably hurts the most. Who is Tomáš Bureš? Tomáš Bureš as an athlete is a person who hates losses… It’s a person who wants to surpass himself permanently. Still going forwards. I hope that he will still go forwards.
Whether it will be in bodybuilding or not. Tomáš Bureš as a normal person is a normal guy as thousands others. He dreamed his dreams. And all his dreams came true. Tomáš Bureš is trying to be a good person and an idol. I do not like motivational rots. Because it is not exactly true that everyone can achieve the same goal. All the best athletes train much more than normal people. They give much more in to it. It’s not like that next day you will read in newspaper that you have fulfilled your life dream.
No…you have to do your best! You have to live for that. And if you don’t live for that, you will never achieve your goals. The main thing is to not shit yourself and to still go on. The key to success is humbleness. Humbleness and willpower are the most important… Because many people achive one small goal and they feel like winners completely. And they show off… they miss humbleness. These people will never go further. But people who are humble and who still surpass themself… … who don’t compete with others but with themeselves.
I think that these people will always achive the highest base. My greatest motivation have always been surpassing myself, as I said. And trying for impossible. There are a lot of athletes who dream of being wordchampions. But when you start to compete with one specific person… it can stop you. Surpass yourself… You are the hardest opponent. You have to surpass yourself. Nothing is more important! Everyone can try it, but not everyone can do it. And not everyone has talent. I know a lot of people who do great bodybuilding. They train hard. They are so strict to themself… But they never achieve success. Because they have no genetics for it. They have too wide waist and other things. But I admire them and to me they are better bodybuilders than some others… They give everything to it. They train hard. They are on diet whole year. They can do incredible things. So I really admire these people. And as I said, to me they are bigger bodybuilders than others who win some inferior comeptition and they think how great they are.
