Brian, Jeff, and Alberto discuss the end of one’s competitive bodybuilding career, why someone might choose to continue competing after their peak, and life after competing.
When might you *not* want to compare yourself against yourself? Why did Alberto start bodybuilding and why is he still competing? What is Jeff’s definition of a bodybuilder? What are sources of motivation for continuing to compete after you’ve hit your peak? Do you have to have a specific “why” all the time? Why is Jeff still competing? When will he know it’s time to retire from competitive bodybuilding? What is he going to do after he stops competing?
The answers to these questions and many more are covered in this episode.
