Brad Castleberry has shared an inspirational message with fans who may be struggling with their mental or physical health.
Understandably, there are a lot of people in the bodybuilding industry following Brad Castleberry on Instagram — 777,000 of them, to be exact. With a following that huge, it’s always important to give back. Check out the message Brad Castleberry shared with fans, hoping to inspire them during a period of great uncertainty.
“Don’t let anything stop you. You vs you,” Castleberry captioned the post, which showed a TikTok of him doing an impressive workout alongside the hashtags “push yourself” and “never give up.”
It’s an important mentality to keep in mind whenever we pursue our fitness goals. It can be easy to fall into a “me vs. them” mentality where you compare yourself to people who are stronger or bigger than you are. The truth is, that type of thinking is extremely self-defeating, caters to the ego, and will get you nowhere. How many times in life have we heard that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others? So why is that so commonplace in the gym? The only way forward is to push yourself towards growth and to be better than you were yesterday — to, as Brad Castleberry put it, have the mindset that it’s only “you vs. you.”
