I don’t have a “freak physique.”
Yes, I’m in unusually good shape for a man of my age.
But freak physique? Not so much.
And by the way, I saw someone promoting themselves on Instagram as “Freak Physique.” Thus, the name.
I also don’t promote the T3 Method, or any other aspect of my coaching and training with anyone who has a freak physique.
But I have friends with freak physiques. They are in insanely good shape, with sculpted bodies and rippling muscles. Their bodies are works of art.
They put in the time, the effort, the intensity. I just finished working out with one of them, in fact!
It turns out they are also amazingly good people. Otherwise I wouldn’t choose them as friends.
Their bodies don’t define them. It’s just what they love to do.
And I celebrate it!
Again, to be perfectly clear…there is nothing in the world wrong with having a freak physique.
But that’s not me.
And it’s a 99.9% chance that’s not you either.
For most of us, the freak physique people represent a fantasy. They are an ideal that people have spent their money, their pain and their confidence trying to become.
And the fitness industry has fed that fantasy, often to an unhealthy extent.
And for the third time, there is nothing wrong with anyone who wants a freak physique. It’s when we imagine that as our role model that it’s a problem.
When it’s clearly not something in our genetic code or that we’re not willing to do the work to make happen that it becomes an issue.
The good news is that you don’t need to be that person.
Let’s be clear. Nobody defines you unless you give them permission to do so.
And having a freak physique doesn’t give you life satisfaction. It doesn’t give you superiority.
It doesn’t give you strong relationships, or financial security.
It doesn’t give you peace, or all the other things I could spend all day naming that have nothing to do with your body composition.
But having a healthy, toned, lean body, mostly free of avoidable toxicity…that’s a whole other story!
Having a body that obeys your will and lets you participate in things that those without a healthy body don’t get to do.
That’s not a freak physique.
That is your birthright.
That’s what we coach and coax people towards!
Did you ever have a “freak physique?”
Was there a time when your body was in amazing shape?
What would it feel like now to get stronger, leaner, healthier?
