It may sound silly, but the most influential bodybuilding advice I personally received in 2010 came about this way:
I was working for Bodybuiding.com at the Arnold Classic and at that point had taken nearly a year off from lifting. Knowing I was smaller than usual, I was making some jokes about it. It was funny for a while, a bunch of us laughed and then one of my favorite pro bodybuilders I work with at Bodybuilding.com said to me, "Remember what your hat says and who you represent."
A Bodybuilding.com knit cap is what I was wearing and though he laughed with me at first....it was a wake up call for me to respect bodybuilding and represent myself appropriately. A couple of months later I started training seriously again and for 5 months in a row I've been making a comeback. I still have along way to go, even to get to where I was 2 years ago, but that exchange of words inspired me, challenged me and made me think a little differently about how I represent the sport.
I'm happy to be back on the forum and plan to represent bodybuilding well moving forward.
Time to eat......
Anything else on your mind that you would like to discuss with other like-minded people.
