You don’t need to be the best, just be better.

Handstand press ups*, pull ups, pistols and sprinting.
 
You could forge a strong, lean, athletic body with those 4 simple movements.
 
A bouns is that they all can be done away from a gym and without any kit, well less for finding somewhere to hang to do pull ups that is.
 
*What many see as a handstand push up is actually a headstand push up as the head touches the floor shortening ROM, a true handstand push up would have your head pass the line of you hands (think hands on boxes with a gap for your head).
 
Given the endless amount of options we have to crave body out of fine marble the big question is this; why do so many struggle?
 
Well my friends there is one answer possessed by this weary soul.
 
It’s not the only answer, however for many it’s the right one.
 
Are your ready for it…..
 
You simply don’t want ‘it’ enough.
 
The ‘it’ can be anything to you however the simple truth is that you just don’t want to achieve success the badly.
 
I know right, what a dick.
 
You are a literal miracle of creation as are many others and if you take just one minute to look around you you’ll see just how many people have taken this for granted and wasted the gift they were given.
 
How can you tell?
 
Poor posture, sloppy movement, obesity, ill health (from lifestyle choice, not unfortunate circumstance or medical issue).
 
People pissing away their lives is everywhere to be seen.
 
Yet even in knowing this and instead of taking some responsibility for their own self they make excuses, dillydally and just generally let themselves rot away all under the guise of –
 
“If only I had XYZ/perfect set of circumstances things would be different.”
 
No, they wouldn’t be different because you’d not change.
 
If you haven’t changed yet why would you change now?
 
Typically two answers become relevant to this ^^
 
1 – Fear (they got scared in to change)
2 – Th pain they currently live with finally because too much
 
The truth is that no one likes to be told they’re only folly and yet it’s not that they’re unaware of it’s existence, they just choose to be ignorant and find any/every excuses to justify their weakness and fragility.
 
Given the above an dhow easy it is to make change to yourself, why don’t you do it?
 
Remember you don’t need a gym (as shown above).
 
You can buy some kettlebells, sandbags or even weights for you own home (you don’t need a full kitted out gym, just enough to challenge you) and proceed to do 15-20min daily practice/movement.
 
15-20min a day, everyone who isn’t an invalid has time for that, what they lack is the desire.
 
Give the above some consideration.
 
Reflect on your excuses, then take a look at yourself in the mirror and say these simple words:
 
“I’m done listening to & believing your bullshit. From now on I’m going to do better. I’m going to be better. I may never be the best, but I will be better tomorrow than I am today.”
 
Enjoy,
Ross
