There are many factors that can effect you outside of the gym, which in turn can effect your presence in the gym. One thing I realized a long time ago, is that if you can find a 1-2 hour HEALTHY escape from all of your problems, keep it that way. It doesn't have to be the gym (snowboarding, reading, music etc.), but in this case, we will use the gym.When you're in the gym, your focus should be on just that: Training. During your time you cant fix anything going on outside of the gym.
RISE AND GRIND!
It’s Monday morning folks, and it’s time to knock that goal list down. We have limited time to get done the things we need to do in the beginning of the week, so start it off right.
Be sure to eat healthy and enter the gym and everything else with a positive mindset. The thoughts in the beginning will lead to future results and rewards
Explore. Something many of us forget to take time to do. Stress builds, and we bottle up feelings that we can't vent out because we're so cooped up in our sedentary routines. Be it relationships, work, or even the gym.
Take a breath of fresh air"! Go outside. Go for a walk. Jump in a pool and float. Meditate in an open field. Hop in your car, windows down, and just drive. Take a step away from it all, even for a moment.
Make sure your phone is off. You'll thank me later".
I've come to love trials and risks in life. If I'm still inside my comfort zone, I know I will not be successful. A great saying about this goes "you can either be comfortable, or successful, but never both". When it comes to my training, in between sets, I focus and create the mental image of how hard I am going to train during my next set. How heavy I'm going to go. Will I do just 8 reps at 245 or will I go until failure? Will I try a different exercise today? You must give up your limitations
Train Hard or Go Home
The Human Body does not want to change out of its natural resting state. Anyone looking to build a great physique must realize that 1, it does not happen over night, and 2, continuous progressive overload is needed. The body, once out of its natural resting state, will try to adapt so it does not have to go through the pain of change again. So what do you need to do to break that barrier? Train harder!
A wise man once said "You never grow inside your comfort zone".
"I am a huge believer of resting when needed. But I am also a believer of working when the world is asleep. That means wake up at 12 noon, work online, prep food, work at 7:30 pm - 2 am, gym at 3 am, my last meal at 4:30 am, and working on my computer again until 5-6 am. I find it optimal to put out as much as you can for yourself and to the world when it sleeps. You will have less distraction from people in person and media, and be able to focus a lot more. Don't aim for an A. Aim for an A+.
