Who else looks crazy while they train? - The mental growth is far superior to the physical gains one can experience in the gym. - We are all ego-driven individuals and so on the surface level we head to the gym to look good and feel better about ourselves. Nothing wrong with that at all. - But I believe that strength training, when properly done, is the most mentally rewarding experience of the day. - Done right and it’s a type of moving meditation where one develops his focus, clarity, and mental toughness --- all prerequisite qualities of any great man, leader, or entrepreneur. - ---> Focus. Be present. Be intense. Lock in. Every rep, set, and rest is a great opportunity to be focusing your energy on the reason you are training and your efforts. - Over time the ability to focus becomes second nature and this newfound trait proves worthy in every endeavor outside of the gym. - ---> Clarity. We should all train alone --- training is a serious endeavor and no one should get between you, the iron, and your thoughts. - This alone time is perfect to discover and fortify your resolve, purpose, and vision. Many times I go in questioning something within my path and leave with the answer. - ---> Mental Toughness. Real strength training should be frightening from an outsider’s perspective. - If you aren’t going to push yourself beyond your current physical and mental capacity, then what’s the point? - Make no mistake about it there are two camps in the gym. - One side socializes and scrolls through their phones, while the other befriends the iron and demands everything of themselves. - What side are choosing to be a part of?
