Default Swedes Quote of the Day Thread

I start with this..

13/6
Quote:
If you're the strongest guy in the gym then you can pretty much guarantee that you've gone as far as you're going to go. I would rather be the weakest guy in the gym and the strongest guy on the platform any day, you know? If you're the strongest dude in the gym, you need to get the **** out and find somebody else you can train with who's going to whoop your ass. Very few people can do it by themselves.
--Dave Tate



The above is damn true.

^ This reminds me of something I often tell my wife. It goes like this...

Wife: what's wrong?

Me: Some young kid who squats less than you is telling people how to train.
