While this applies to every aspect of life- let’s apply it in the gym.
Me personally I only compete with ME- no one else.
The guy in the mirror has won long enough. He might be strong but he is husky.
Now that’s me.
But for my readers I urge you to conquer you and ignore the gym jerk, your peers, and the hotties.
The only thing that matters is that you create measurable progress every chance you get.
Exceed your expectations, ignore others.
