I’m probably one of the few people who knew about CT before he got e-famous. I keep tabs on anyone who gets that close to a 700lb bench. If you out benched Kaz; I’ve probably read about you before lol.
I hope he retains his popularity. He deserves some kind of credibility for his powerlifting accomplishments. If you want to find something to take away from his message imo it’s this: Your attitude and belief in what you’re doing is more important than your program itself.
Whatever rep/set/exercise scheme you’re doing, if you attack it aggressively and believe that it will make you stronger, you will see much better results than someone on a “better” program who is just going through the numbers and percentages as he has to.
People focus on diet, sleep, and programming. Your attitude, aggressiveness, competitiveness, and just the way you approach lifting is often not even addressed. Those things are just as important if not more important than the other pieces. Honestly in my opinion it’s the most important thing. Hope that made sense.
It’s a huge deal with youth nowadays imo (I’m not quite old enough to talk like that but bear with me lol). Boys these days don’t seem to have that fire in their belly in the gym. I believe you can teach it though. If you can learn how to unleash your inner savage you’re in for some great gains.
Still something I’m trying to improve upon myself.[/quote]
