Just do it

If you haven’t heard the story of CT
Fletcher, visit YouTube and enter his
name in the search bar; it’s best to hear
him tell it in his own words, provided
you’re not offended by excessive cursing.
A brief summary of the version is this:
Fletcher was a world-champion
powerlifter in his younger years. He
lifted like a beast, but also ate one of the
unhealthiest diets ever, consisting of the
same meal at McDonald’s every day for
more than 20 years: four Big Macs, four
orders of fries, two milkshakes, and four
personal-sized apple pies—a lunch that
topped 5,000 calories. Not surprisingly,
emergency open-heart surgery ensued.
Fletcher nearly expired multiple times,
but he somehow made it through. Now,
at age 54, he’s a lean 235 at 5'11",
down from 300-plus during his
powerlifting days.Things are
different—namely, he makes very few
trips to McDonald’s and goes much
lighter in the gym than he used to. But
one thing hasn’t changed: his no-excuses
“I flatlined three times on the operating
table, and it took me 18 months to
recover,” Fletcher says. “But I manage to
get my ass up and go to the gym, so I don’t
accept many excuses from the over-40
guys. If I can go do my workouts, you can.
And I’m not just an over-40 guy—I’m over
50. No matter what life throws at you, or
what you’re going through or how hard
it gets, it’s still your motherf—in’ set.”
