Once You Stop Drinking You Will Never Reach Your Bodybuilding Potential…

I looked pretty good this summer (Pics coming soon).

Probably my 4th or 5th best.  But I can’t lie, I didn’t reach my best ever, even though I trained pretty hard.

When I do my end of year review, I like to ask myself some questions and self-reflect on what I can change for next year.

Also, what changed in my life?

First of all, I got married two years ago.  That hurts, but not an absolute killer.

Second problem, I have a child now.  This hurt some more as well, but its not really an excuse.

And finally, I don’t go out drinking any more.

Let’s face it.  When I was in my best shape of my life, I was single, no kids and I went out drinking every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Now, I am not saying that drinking helps you to get cut.  But you know what does? Dancing, sweating and walking around all night until 4 in the morning.

Now I go to bed at 10:30.

That extra cardio is key.

The other issue with being married now, is that I can’t keep the insane diet.

There were times that I would eat a can of tuna for dinner, 3 or 4 days in a row.

As a married man, that is a tough diet to sell to your wife.

When you have kids, that training is the same, diet is a little worse because you start eating some of their good.

But the rest is horrible.

Running a quick 4-mile tempo run, followed by 10 sprints in 95 degree heat is tough.

I used to do that workout routinely, then chill out in the air conditioning, drink a beer, put my feet up and take a nice nap on the couch.

Now?

The minute I am done with the workout, I am on full baby duty.

No rest. No naps.

So overall, there is still no excuse not to be in good shape if you are married.

It is just the small things that block you from being the total champion that you were as a single guy.

Hopefully, once my son is a little older I think it will free me up somewhat to get back in the crazy training.

And hopefully he starts eating tuna fish.
