Be Perfect - Hard Work Wins
There will always be someone willing to give more than you IF you don't consistently give 100%.
Martin Fitzwater explains the 24/7/365 aspect of the sport of bodybuilding and especially on the world class competitive arena as an IFBB professional.
"You have all seen pro ball players able to dick around and then make the game saving touch down. You can have gamer moments in some sports. Not in bodybuilding."
Sure, you can be near perfect with nutrition 97%
You can go to true failure on 3/4 movements 75%
You can recover near perfectly with adequate sleep 90%
You can let distraction seep in 20%
Then you always have that someone who refuses to give excuses and gives 100% instead.
