“I’m no expert on training books, but I can tell you how to get a built-in Bullshit Detector. Are you ready for this pearl of wisdom? Sit down and take out your pen or even better, write this in your own blood and semen:
Train like a motherfucker for 10 years, no breaks, no bullshit, nothing but you and the bar, the rack and some chalk!
Once you do this, you’ll be able to read most things about training and realize if they’re full of shit or not. You’ll see people widely regarded as experts as the charlatans that they really are. Without ever meeting the author, you’ll be able to tell if he or she actually has calluses or if they just hide behind a keyboard. It’s like this amazing veil of shit will be lifted from your eyes and everything will be clear.
Every once in awhile you’ll lose track, but all you have to do look at someone’s shins and hands; do they look fucked up? Then listen to them.”- Jim Wendler
