This is how champions are made through sheer grit and determination!

“One person on the stage that didn’t trying to be number one, it should not be in the stage…If you’re training to be number two you should stay home!” – Shawn Rhoden

Bodybuilding is not an easy sport, is about sacrifice, dedication, motivation, effort, and giving it yours all throughout every second of every day. Every competitive bodybuilder you see is the signs of sacrifice. The grooves of their abdominals and their slab-like muscles tell a story of dedication and obsession.

“It’s all about you… As bodybuilding is a selfish sport.”

In the above video, Shawn Rhoden goes into detail about the kinds of sacrifices he made to become the 2018 Mr. Olympia champion. Watch the above video!
