As I’ve gotten back into the training aspect at Newell Strength, I have really been enjoying listening to and thinking about the philosophy of some of the bodybuilding greats.
Men that have inspired me and that have played a huge role in my development.
Socrates has a quote that resonated with what I have been thinking alot about lately, ‘No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.’
You shape your mind through your body.
Your body is the temple, treat it as such and watch how your philosophy of life changes.
Here are some great clips with some of the characters I mentioned in the episode:
