🕴️The G of the Week: Tom Platz
What can you learn from the bodybuilding legend?
Who's the G of the Week?
Tom Platz - saw him on a ton of IG reels.
Why is He Impressive?
He was a professional bodybuilder known for his huge legs, which were over 30 inches. His nickname was "The Quadfather."
He's part of the old-school bodybuilders, having trained with people like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
He won the 1980 Mr. Universe. But when he came back, he found out that his fiancee had left him for his training partner. Instead of getting sad and depressed, he fueled that energy into the gym which helped him achieve his best physique for the 1981 Mr. Olympia. He finished third that year, which was his best result.
What Can You Learn From Him?
"Luck comes to men of action."
"The only place to go from failure is to win."
"When you promise yourself something, and you make a commitment, you can't give up. You've to fulfill the promise you made to yourself. The people who can self-motivate in any field are usually the ones who win, regardless of talent."
