Yeah, psychologically, in any sport that requires physical muscular training, and in modern society, IT'S HARD NOT TO END UP USING THE MIRROR AS A GAUGE.
Being in condition we're gonna look in condition in the mirror, but that doesn't mean the better we look in the mirror the better we're gonna be in competition. At some point the two things diverge.
