Muscle Building Mindset
The modern world is an increasingly stressful place to live. The pressure to work more, raise a family, make more money, etc. all affect our mental and physical health. I am sure you’ve gone to the gym distracted by a problem at work or at home. This never makes for a productive workout.
This illustrates how the mind and body are intimately connected. I am sure you have heard the saying, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” Well sometimes life just sucks the will right out of you. It doesn’t matter what supplement or training program you’re on. If you don’t have the will to give full effort you won’t see results.
To help you get your mind right before a training session there are two strategies that I use:
1. Clear your mind
You will never be able to finish everything you have to do before a workout. You just have to deal with what you can and put the rest on hold. I find the best way to do this is to make a “To Do” list. This way you don’t have to constantly remind yourself of what you need to do later. This is one of the most important safe muscle building secrets there is.
2. Take a timeout
Getting into the right mindset for a workout isn’t necessarily difficult, but it does take some time. If you walk into the gym still talking on your cell phone about whatever issue you’re dealing with that day (family, work, friends, etc.) then you definitely won’t be in the right mindset for your first set. So turn-off the phone and listen to your favorite music on the car ride to the gym. While you’re in the car visualize your workout in your head. Picture yourself being successful. This only needs to take 10 minutes of your time.
Keep in mind that these safe muscle building secrets go far beyond helping you have better workouts. Applying the strategies above also improves your overall health and well-being.
If you combine the right mindset with a scientifically designed training and nutrition program you will be unstoppable.
