It’s a big challenge, but I think I’ve got an interesting perspective. I can’t really get into another guy’s head and I’m constantly in the process of learning. But I’ve gotten some pretty cool things done on the skin with my tattoo removal, and I think those will happen with this.
Do you worry you are overdoing it?
I definitely think that’s the problem. It gives me a false ego. The idea of being all powerful and being able to go in and go to the gym and do everything, and just be able to come back and do it again. But if you’re overdoing it and you lose the confidence of going in and having the time to just sit up straight and think about things, and not even want to be thinking about it? Then you come back to it two months later and you’re all, “Oh, okay. I can still do it. I just have a little bit more time to think about all this stuff now.” Then you’re back to where you were. I want this to last a long time.
There are a lot of people who are going over-the-top in how they look.
[Laughs] Yeah, there’s a lot of that. There seems to be a sense there when I’m doing things like this that maybe I’ve over-done it a little, which it’s okay. I just really wanted to get the most out of it, and it’s funny, it is kind of like you think this is the way you want to look when you’re working out. Then when you go back to what you do in the morning, it’s like, “Oh, this is the way you want to look when you’re working out.”
What are some of the most embarrassing things you have to put away because of being so obsessed with doing things right?
There are a few. I’ve gotten into a few habits, like when I start going in for an MRI, or when I’m waiting to get into a car or a taxi to go somewhere, it’s probably getting into my shirt pocket. Because if you see my tattoo, it’s definitely right there in front of my face, when I look in the mirror. If it’s on the front of my shirt, that means that I’ve gotten myself into some bad habits.
I’d probably be fine doing what I do today if there were never anything wrong with it. But I wouldn’t want to do it
