I have heard quite a few people say this to me about training over the years, and it sounds like they are really motivated.
I used to believe them when I was just starting out. I would think, “That guy is going to do really well. ” Here’s what he was really saying (between the lines),”I’m not going to any of this but I don’t have the guts to tell you.”
The focus was on the “not at all” part of the statement in his statement, not the “100%” part.
It is beyond me why anyone would not want to be healthy and strong. It makes absolutely no sense.
Is being sickly and weak a better deal in life?
If I have a person come to discuss training and he tells me he doesn’t really know how to lift, but he wants to learn, and is humble and hungry for solid training advice, he is one who will probably take action and train consistently.
No big ego, no big talk, and maybe not even in decent shape at all (yet),
he’s the person I want to work with! He will listen and apply what he learns.
