Let’s Get Serious
I often revisit this clip featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and his training partner, Ed Corney. Arnold is spotting Ed while he squats, he’s giving it everything he’s got. On the eighth rep, Ed is nearing failure, but Arnold pushes him saying, “C’mon let’s get serious.” Ed managed to squeeze out a few more reps before collapsing to the ground in exhaustion.
The end result of bodybuilders, musicians, and writers is often seen, but not the hard work and effort it took to develop them. Peering behind the scenes and seeing the mindset and dedication to reach the elite level in your craft is always inspiring.
