A Time and Place for Everything

Today, some 13 years after I transitioned out of traditional gym workouts, I have come to a point of evolution and maturity where I understand that strength and muscle discriminates against nothing. That there is a time and place for using machines and free weights, odd objects and bodyweight training. They all work as long as you do the work.

And that is exactly where most people falter. They expect a certain training tool or method to be a shortcut or some kind of magic pill, which is simply not true.

It goes back to what Arnold said about the pain barrier: You have to go through it to succeed. Unless you’re pushing the limits in your training, you won’t understand or even experience this pain barrier. But it is a key element to becoming a champion—not just in sports or bodybuilding, but also in life. It’s far more important than whatever object you’re trying to move.
