The most ignored causes when your results are lacking – Part 1: Stress

Today, it’s becoming increasingly trendy to throw around the term “living a balanced lifestyle” without actually defining it properly. It shouldn’t imply an incessant glorification of “YOLO” where you one moment are rushing through a Crossfit-WOD so intense that you’re bleeding out of your ears, and in the next you’re throwing up brownies and tequila after being smashed out of your mind all weekend.

Just one of those paradoxes I have accepted and come to terms with over the years. On top of that I have competed myself (bodybuilding) and never done well, and “how can someone who can’t bring himself into top condition be a good coach for others”? Some outstanding logical reasoning skills being displayed in that sentence, but I digress.
