Let me tell you a little something about having abs and why you should never make that your goal, okay?
HOW I GOT THEM?
Very unglamorous, I’m afraid.
I was in quite a BIG caloric deficit and FORCING MYSELF to do ab session 3 TIMES A WEEK.
At the same time, I was working 60-70 hours a week and had no free time to eat out.
I want to tell you something more important though.
The craziest part for me is that even when my midsection looked like this aka shredded AF, I’m telling you, and being 100% honest, I wasn’t happy with the way I looked.
People at the time were telling me every day that I look incredible, I honestly didn’t see it.
I still thought that they’re not really popping enough when relaxed, I thought I didn’t look any out of ordinary.
I was still training hard, I was in more than 700kcal deficit and I didn’t have a period. (Sorry for TMI) .
I want you to read this and read it carefully WHEN I HAD ABS I WASN’T HAPPY WITH THE WAY I LOOKED, I KEPT THINKING THAT I NEED TO BE MORE SHREDDED.
That’s fucked up, it’s actually scary, because that’s pretty disordered eating kind of thinking.
Secondly, I really hate admitting this but I fucked myself over big time by doing this.
Because even though now, I look pretty good, I mean I’m confident and happy and strong and not hungry, lol.
But every time someone tells me I look good, in my head, I’m thinking, “this? Nah, I used to look way better.”
But being totally honest with you, it’s not that important to me anymore.
I really don’t care about how shredded I am or ANYONE ELSE IS.
I am actually so grateful that it is not my number one priority anymore.
That’s why when someone tells me that their goal is to have abs, it fucking triggers me.
IT’S NOT THAT FUCKING IMPORTANT, nobody actually cares.
Stop focusing on it so much, it’s such an empty goal to have. I admire people who can snatch 100kg not the ones who have abs.
If you’re someone who trains hard and manages to maintain their abs as a byproduct, good for you!
But if you’re sacrificing a part of your life just for the sake of having abs, then I don’t admire you, I just find you fucking BORING. Soz.#dropsmike
