I wasn’t always athletic or muscular.
Chances are, I’m a lot like you: a genetically average, narrow jointed skinny dude.
And while some dudes look at a barbell and gain pure muscle, I don’t. Never have. Never will!
I was one of those guys who trained daily for an hour or two, took every miracle supplement, and ate food like it was going out of style.
Still, nothing changed.
I was the classic runt of a man with a metabolism rivaling a hummingbird on meth.
Hell, for years I drowned in skinny jeans and t-shirts.
I was timid, constantly comparing myself to others and skipping challenging situations. I lacked confidence in my body’s appearance and my abilities in every aspect of life.
Yet I had binders full of training articles. I blew money on every super-powered protein powder. I lifted constantly. And still, no results.
Finally, it all came to a head. After years of agony, my coach Mr. Morgan pulled me aside.
He said: “ Hey Eric. I see you in here working hard.”
He continued: “But you’re not making much progress, are you?
Do you know what the definition of insanity is?”
I looked up and muttered: “No.”
Mr. Morgan then quoted Albert Einstein:
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
