Its even more depressing in bbing, I've seen someone train for 6 months and win the overall at the NPC show in LA, then immediately quit and go back to looking like they never touched a weight lol
There is a lot of truth to this. One of my favorite training videos is out of a olmypic weightlifting gym in CA called Cal Strength. One of their newer lifters was watching Donny Shankle (aka the lion killer) moving shit tons of weight and he asks the coach “How do I lift like Donny?”. To which the coach replies “go back, pick a stronger dad, and a stronger mom”.
