I’ve had this discussion with a number of athletes in various situations. I’m curious what Active athletes would choose.
You can only choose one of the two situations below. For purposes of this completely unscientific survey we’ll say that you cannot have both situations. (i.e. You cannot have your cake and eat it too.)
Would you prefer #1 or #2 - and why?
1) 1. A body weight five to seven pounds over what you consider “perfect” for you AND consistent podium places at races.
2) 2. A body weight at what you consider to be “perfect” for the way you want to look and the clothing size you want to wear AND consistently finishing in the last half of the pack.
