Everyone gravitates toward what they're good at. If you've got big legs, you're going to go squat. If you've got big pecs, you're going to go to the bench press. It's just what we automatically do. That's why I tell people who come to train: "No ego here." Don't worry about doing what you're good at. Let's just expose our weaknesses and focus on shit we can't do. Or better yet, create things we can't do. Because when you combine all those things, that's just going to make you athletically greater. You're gonna be a better athlete, no matter what activity you're in, if you become stronger, more flexible, and better cardiovascularly. That's just a fact. There's no way around that.
