Default How to become a smarty pants

Ok, so let's say that I wanted to be an exercise and nutrition genius like Robb or Greg. What would I have to do?

I bet they get lot's of chicks and stuff too!

high doses of fish oil!

well, i can't speak for robb and his methods, but mine are quite simple: surround myself with smarty pantses, speak when i have something intelligent to say and keep my mouth shut when i don't. that makes me appear much smarter than i actually am.

seriously... the surrounding yourself with the right people part is key. i think that''s the best way to learn. best thing i did is hook up with john frankl -> robb and nicki -> tons of other people.

also try to set aside time every day to read, watch, poke around online, etc. as much as you can. this is so much easier now with online access to so many good resources, but don't forget to search out books as well.
