Re: Psyching Up
I try not to psyche up before entering the gym. I just tell myself that this is the schedule for tonight and no matter what I am not leaving without completing every set and rep with full intensity.
I personally thrive on accomplishment during my workout. Typical example would be that after my first couple warm-up sets I aim straight for my max because I am still "fresh," this is when I push myself to muscle failure. Once I am done I know that nothing can stop me from having a hardcore workout and every other set just falls into place.
However, if I do not accomplish that utopia effect during my first exercise, I put the weight back on the rack, head of to the treadmill for 2mins and start over again at the weight room.
Sounds abit crazy but due this thinking frame of mind I have broken alot of my personal records.
Courage is not the absence of Fear.
Its the presence of fear with the ability to move ahead.
