Just choose to focus on one thing at a time.
You don't have to do it all, and you don't have to do it all right now.
Breathe. Be present, and do your best with what's in front of you. 








 
"Sergio Oliva tells his TRUE routine in his own words . . ."
 
Yeah, but. Whine, whine, piss and moan.
Hahaha! On to the article . . . 

In a personal letter sent to MTI publisher Dan Lurie, Mr. Olympia Sergio Oliva confirms that he will appear in the WBBG show on September 8th - and sends his complete routine which has never been published anywhere else. In that letter, Sergio insisted that we not change one word of his routine in any way because he does not want to mislead the public. 
 
He claims that all other routines previously published elsewhere are false and that only the following is the true Sergio Oliva exercise program. [The battle of the mag owners continues!]

The few comments are in Sergio's own words and are in quotes.
