Listen to the MP3 Audio: Natural Bodybuilding – Become the best version of yourself by Mischa Janiec at TEDxHSG
Hello everybody. I have a question for you: What is the first thing which pops to your mind when you hear the term “bodybuilding”? Chicken breasts, brown rice, and broccoli, right? Or is it rather a way too muscular, narcissistic guy like overtanned, flexing in front of the mirror of your gym or the classic: steroids. That’s what I always hear.
It’s usually another very positive idea, and to be honest with you, for a long time it wasn’t for me either. Well, today I’m going to tell you something about bodybuilding. I’m going to tell you how I used this powerful lifestyle as a tool to become the best version of myself: mainly through learning how mental and physical fitness are connected to each other, recognizing self-reflection as a success driving attitude and learning that failure is a necessary step towards success.
My name is Mischa Janiec. I’m a personal coach, entrepreneur and a natural pro bodybuilder. And I’ve been doing this sport for almost eight years. That means I’ve completed over 2,000 workouts and spent over 5,000 hours in the gym so far. Unbelievable!
I’ve also bench pressed over 10 million kilos, that’s the equivalent of 100 Blue Whales, the biggest and heaviest animal on this planet. It’s a good amount of weight; don’t you think?
