It Doesn’t Matter How You Feel

IMG_8361

“How often do you make up your mind about how you’ll perform in a workout before you even touch your first piece of training equipment? My guess is that it happens more than you realize.

When you train, you can become hypersensitive about how you feel, in almost every sense of the word and in every phase of a performance – before, during, and after.

My goal in this article is to simply raise your awareness. Judging the way you “feel” can create a self-fulfilling prophecy that can alter your actual performance, sometimes for the better, but often for the worse. I also hope to convince you that, while it would be nice to feel great all the time, doing so is not only unrealistic but, more importantly, not a prerequisite to performing well.”
