“I read the forums. I see people arguing on the Internet about whether to do Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1 program or my Westside for Skinny Bastards plan. It’s great to think your programs through, but if you don’t have “it” – if you don’t have the right mental attitude – then it doesn’t matter what friggin’ program you do.
I’ve had kids tell me that they’ve been doing my programs for four years, but when they come to my gym they’re in horrible shape. They’re weak; they look like they’ve never worked out. They’ve never pushed themselves. They don’t have “it.”
It’s not about the program. It’s not about the equipment. You’ve got to put the mental shit first; the program is secondary”.
