|Remember these guys? Uh...me either.|
I remind my students of this when I'm teaching my own classes: why did you drag your ass out of bed at 6am this morning? To watch me work out? I don't think so. The ONLY person you are cheating when you don't give as much as you can during a workout is....yourself. Sucks, doesn't it? You think I don't see you pretending to twist the resistance knob to the right as we climb a hill in class? I do, but even if I didn't, it doesn't mean you burned more calories because you were able to "trick" me.
Whether you want bigger muscles or a smaller size of Sevens, the ONLY person who can make that happen is YOU. If you're not willing to put in the blood, sweat, and hours it takes to train and to shop for healthy food, then your dream will remain that: a dream.
Whining doesn't burn calories.
