“You can keep going and your legs might hurt for a week or you can quit and your mind will hurt for a lifetime.” (Mark Allen)
I have 4 questions for you:
How often do you give less than 100% in your workout?
When is the last time you really gave it a full, focused, determined effort…right to the very end?
On a scale of 0-10 (10 = high), how would you rate the quality of your last 3 training sessions?
Are your answers to those questions acceptable to you?
This week’s keyword: Quality
Commit to bringing the best of you to each training session this week.
Your focus, your presence, your enjoyment and your determination are all sharpened, honed and strengthened when you chose to commit to quality, especially when your lungs are burning and your mind is telling you to quit.
To help with increasing the quality of your training, here are three practices to include in your workouts, starting today.
Set your focus – just before you begin, ask yourself “What one thing do I need to focus on in order to make this a level 10 quality workout?”
Rate your effort – check in with yourself multiple times in each training session and give yourself a Quality Score out of 10. Make the necessary adjustment to finish strong.
Track your progress – give an overall score to every workout this week. The more you measure, the more likely you are to keep raising your quality each time.
These practices take virtually no time to execute and the payoff is worth it. Using Triblogs makes it easy to log everything and keep an eye on your focus and the quality of your training.
Let us know if you do any of these – or are planning on trying this. These blogs are there to act as a trigger for people, something to make you think! You may feel that they have no relevance at all! Please let us know what you think.
