Surprisingly enough....I've never been obsessed about working out my glutes. In all honesty, it's because I already have alot of volume there. So, in retrospect, any sort of obsession with my booty fell to the wayside.
Now that I am well into fitness and have seen the type of growth in my quads, hammies and calves that I've wanted...I've decided now is the time to give my glutes the attention they deserve.
Now don't get it confused....I WOULD work out my glutes but not in the ways that I would the other parts of my legs. I just think big and toned quads are sexy.
I know. I know. I'm supposed to give each body part equal loving because it prevents injury... But the reasoning behind it was to make my body the carving of what I find beautiful and not what SOCIETY tells me I have to look like.
On top of that...Strong quads that can keep someone in my guard...Oh boy, the feeling is amazing. Ever since I started Brazilian jiu-jitsu, I've kind of shifted my goals from being strong just to be strong, to being strong so that when I roll with a guy...I give him a run for his money.
I NEVER want to be underestimated...Actually, go ahead and underestimate...It always makes me work harder. ;) Look at the status quo and think to yourself, "How can I be better? How can I approach it in a way that works for me and in a way that I can excel?" If you want motivation to last, you have to remember something: Motivation that comes from within and motivation that is driven by your standards...Is the type of motivarion that will get you where you wanna go.
Try to avoid extrinsic motivators...Like money, or fame, or followers, or looking like someone else.
Trust me when I say...That that type of motivation won't get you as far as motivation that is driven by goals that only involve something you can control. Accomplishment felt from, money, or followers, or looking like someone else, is fleeting. When you accomplish something that you conjured from within, the sense of accomplishment is deeper and you'll find more happiness.
Always turn to yourself to make yourself happy. No one else can do a better job. ❤️
