Great article Coach. I recently went on a cut diet…I was walking around at 175-178 thinking I was mostly muscle LOL …70 days later and 20lbs later I weight somewhere between 157-160 and I’m lean mean and ripped. Recently posted my results and got all kind of comments about how I looked. At my lowest weight ever I was 145lbs…this was when I got marred 18 years ago- that was my non weightlifting lean starting point. Over the years I’ve added about 15lbs of muscle and it looks awesome on me imo. Everything you say here has shaken out in my life. I think what it comes down to is that people never feel happy with where they are …that’s why training for aesthetics is so disheartening. I think training for the love of training is so much better…even though initially it was to look better what sustained me was love of sport.
