Which I get, honestly. I used to think the same thing.
I got really serious about fitness about 8 years ago and I've put on 30(ish) pounds of muscle and lost 80(ish) pounds of body fat
I really don't have one, to be honest.
It's all hard work and consistency over almost a decade.
But there are a few "non-negotiables" that I NEVER break.
Skip a workout just because I don't feel like going.
Now, if I'm too busy or on vacation, or life gets in the way, sure, I skip a workout.
But I don't listen to my body or my feelings.
I train hard, without fail, always.
Go into the weight room without an exact plan.
I know exactly what I'm doing when I step into the weight room.
And then I do just that.
Every single time.
Mail in a set.
Mailing in a set means just going through the motions.
On every single set, I play "beat the training log".
If you're not progressing, you're stagnant.
Progress at all times, if possible.
Don't get adequate protein.
200 grams, minimum, every day.
No matter if I'm cutting or bulking.
Every single day - for 8 years - without fail.
Allow myself to get overly fat.
Once I hit a certain threshold, I go into cut mode, every time.
That threshold is 255 or so. (Remember, I'm 6'8" and have visible abs at 240 pounds).
If I hit 255, it's an automatic 12 week cut, no questions asked.
Whine about hunger.
It's a part of dieting.
Suck it up.
Don't be an idiot and eat 1,000 calories per day or anything.
But hunger is natural and normal.
Deal with it, or stay fat.
Eat my feelings.
Sometimes I'm stressed, anxious, tired, sad, angry, etc.
But eating shit food won't help.
It will just make me fatter.
Deal with your emotions in ways other than food.
It's the long game.
I don't have super high test numbers.
In fact, I may get on TRT in the future - I'm considering it (~300 or so free test).
Kinda makes the whole "I can't build muscle 'cuz of low test" excuse a bit bunk.
