Carrying on from Friday nights post with Mike Tyson talking about his weight loss on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast (you can find that post > here <), Tyson continued:
“I was discussing with my wife something about me being overweight,” Tyson said. “And she said ‘Why don’t you just get on the treadmill for 15 minutes a day?’ but then it went from 15 minutes a day, to two hours a day.
“Getting in shape and getting conditioned are two different animals,” Tyson explained. “They don’t even belong in the same division of working out. Getting in shape is getting able to fit in your clothes. Being in condition is being able to come outside of your soul. You can’t do that automatically. The emotional state to prepare for that is mind boggling.
“Let me tell you something about the first training video. I did that video and I was in bed for a week. That was 30 seconds and I was in bed for a week. That was not funny because it made me realize that this is big boy sh*t.”
