Training and nutrition advice
I'm frail. I'm weak! My wrists are tiny, I'm 5'8", and my lifts are light for my weight (currently 210 lbs. as of this morning). But, I don't care.
Even though what I could lift when I began training in the gym was really sad (in my opinion), I've improved. I remember when bench pressing 100 lbs. seemed like an amazing accomplishment! Then, after seeing what others could do, I realized 100 lbs. on the bench isn't all that much. Now? A few weeks ago I benched 265 lbs. Much better!
We can't all be born with the genetic potential to be big and ripped, and that's okay. Accepting what I can do, as a natural lifter, will be limited has actually been freeing. I simply concentrate on progressive overload. I consistently strive to be better on each workout. It works. I'm stronger today than I was last week.
Week after week, month after month, year after year, I get a little bit stronger. My form gets a little bit better. I continue to progress. Working out is something I love to do, and I intend on being the best I can be at it, just for myself - nobody else.
Just because you were born with genetics that make you weaker than the average person does NOT mean you can't surpass that.
Steve Shaw, aka: The Big Hairy Ugly Dude had a similar experience. I really like the video he made where he addresses this. Check it out!
