Cash saidNever had a Trainer in my life. Never belonged to a gym in my life.
Started everything with a Home-Workout diagram torn out of Men's Health.
Thus far I have no complaints.
Thus proving you won the genetic lottery. Damn you.
Only in that I come from a long line of individuals who are able to stay focused on a goal and remain dedicated to the process of achieving it.
I have not done any thing that ANY guy could no do - BUT I was able to stay dedicated and not give into discouragement.
Most of the e-mails I get asking for advice start out with something like "I have been going to the gym 2 or 3 imes a week for nearly 3 months and STIIL don't have the results I want!!!!!" as if 15 years of poor diet and inactivity could be turned into cover-model material in 10-12 weeks.
It takes time and dedication and an ability not to be attached to outcomes. Or give into bullshit cliches - I didn't have visible abs until I was OVER 40.
I was rail thin as a kid (and often teased for it). I have fused vertabrae and bulging disks that I was repeatedly told would prevent me from doing much of anything including walking very far. I have very successfully proved THAT to be completely incorrect - whatever I have is a result of my own focused efforts and NOT a result of being in the Lucky Sperm Club.
