In this episode, Brad, Alberto, and Jeff discuss the pitfalls of having a big ego and importance of self-confidence. Thinking you are “the man” and being close-minded can cost you big time in your bodybuilding/powerlifting career, but so can constantly talking down to yourself.
When have the coaches’ egos cost them progress? What lesson did Jeff learn from tearing his calf? What does Brad regret about his early days? Which athletes tend to do the best long-term? How can you break through to someone who has a big ego? How important is self-confidence as a coach or athlete?
The answers to these questions, plus many personal examples of the coaches’ egos leading them to downfalls are covered in today’s episode. If you lift weights at all or coach those who do, the insights shared in this episode are sure to be valuable.
