ZERO F.CKS GIVEN - Ed Brown
Old school, as we define it, is probably something akin to grit and grind and loving every minute of it. Old school is also a hardcore, unwavering vision and goal of where you want to go, knowing why and never letting up on the gas.
Ed Brown and the crew he brought from Big Tex Gym on a road trip to destination is the furthest from ordinary as you can get. Alex Barlow, Kiu Long and Toniy Ramos are all loud, eccentric and cast from a different mold. What unites all of them is the old school mentality that Ed Brown lives and breathes and passes to anyone he comes into contact with.
These guys are all young, green and hungry. Sometimes you need a push from a someone who has crazy aspirations. Even I need this sometimes.
Old school also means sticking to your own guns when no one around you can understand or see your particular vision. Ed has made a career of teaching others how to build muscle, burn fat and to understand and love the process while pursuing his IFBB Pro status.These guys crack jokes and bust balls but all understand what they are doing in the gym and why.
You cant listen to the "experts." The experts cant instill passion and purpose in you. The experts wont ever need to answer YOUR question of what if I gave it my all.
It is safe to say that "old school" will always be in style. When you have passion, purpose, live each moment day in and day out being unapologetic, that is when you can truly dig in to what makes you YOU and can quit wasting energy looking for approval.
