Impossible is nothing!

The following is from an Adidas add in ESPN Magazine:

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an oppinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."

Anyway, I thought this was pretty cool. Hope you enjoy it!!!

One valuable thing I got from RKC cert is the positive attitude from just about everyone. I came back home a better man.

Now I'm knocking on some Dragon Door personnel to order 500 lbs worth of KBs. Got to start out a workshop, hopefully around September.

If I'm following your book correctly, I'm suppose to be asleep by now. Good night.

Good quote. What's this book Taikei is talking about?

Franz Snideman said...

He is talking about our Fat Loss Book we wrote and published last year:

"The Revolution Kettlebell Fat Loss Program"

Pull-ups... are you training for something?

Taikei Matsushita said...

Fawn, during June cert I saw Franz near by pull up bar every single day. He went for 40kg so there's something in his mind.

Franz Snideman said...


I am training to be able to perform pull ups with the Beast(106 pounds) for reps and to be able to do 20 bodyweight pulls ups (can do around 16 right now).

I have that quote on my wall.

Yeah you want to hear something funny. I'm down about 40 lbs from my heaviest and have added some muscle from when i was that weight too. So naturaly most of the people that knew me then and now ask me what I'm doing.
At first I would get excited tell them about KB's, complexes, strength training, and HIIT cardio. I swear 99% of the peoples eyes just glaze over and before I'm done speaking they make excuses. I figured out everyone was waiting for a miracle pill or diet. Not "my secret is working really damned hard."
One of the most common is "I have a thyroid condition, and it's impossible for me to loose weight."

I actually called someone on it. I said "then get medicine hypothyroidisim is a dangerous condition." The response was predictably grim, "well my doctor said I can never loose weight."

I had an answer ready, but let it go. With that attitude she was right. Impossible to loose weight.

Franz Snideman said...


yeah, some people have been sold a bill of goods and believe the nonsense that they cannot lose weight. We both know that is a lie.

Are there any fat people in concentration camps? The answer is of course no. Bad lifestyle habits and poor nutrition choices lead to people being fat, period!

Great post and congrat's on your weight loss!!!

Royce said...

Thanks man. Covert Bailey said something once that has always stuck with me. "If you are alive you have a metabolisim. If you have a metabolisim you can loose fat."

"Are there any fat people in concentration camps? "

I love that! I ask if you were stranded on a desert island and only ate what you caught and what you could get out of the ground would you still gain weight with your "slow metabolism"?
