Pushing yourself past your perceived limitations when training builds momentum to take into all other areas of your life.
This means doing that one extra rep, one extra set, one extra exercise when you are already at what you feel is your ‘breaking point’, will help prove that at least half the battle is mental. We build much more than just physical and physiological strength, we build mental grit and attitude. That attitude and character we develop transcends the gym we just left or the stairs we just climbed. We take that attitude and belief we have attained from pushing our mind and bodies into the rest of our lives.
Try this on the next workout you do. When you feel you are ‘done’ and you just can’t do any more, push yourself to do that one extra- it’s short term pain for major long-term reward, in all facets of your life!
Here is a clip from Adam Ali that just oozes perseverance and awe-inspiring internal motivation and drive.
