Default Just some wise words from Shelby Starnes.

Some wise words from one of my favorite bb'ers and trainers regarding the sport of bodybuilding.

Often, when bodybuilders and other physique competitors place poorly, they will look at those that placed ahead of them and pick out their flaws.

“How did so-and-so place ahead of me when they have a bloated stomach and poor leg development?”


“I can’t believe I placed behind someone that looks like they are 10 weeks out!”

While quite often these may be legitimate observations, they do nothing to help us become better competitors. Instead, they mainly just drive us nuts.

Instead of focusing on others, we need to place the blame on ourselves.

“What are MY flaws?”

“What can I do to improve, so the judges have no choice but to place me in first next time?”

These questions will point us in the direction we need to go. They are the questions that winners ask themselves, before they win their next competition. They spawn action.

Bodybuilding will always be a competition of comparisons. To get ahead though, you need to keep the focus on you vs. you.
