1. This one is my favorite. Make light weights feel heavy. You can make 10lb...

Mindful Reps/Training Making that connection between your brain and muscle(s) is everything when you’re training. Being mindless and flying through reps is just a waste of your time and doesn’t benefit the muscle that you’re trying to stimulate. Your muscle only responds to the mechanical stress that it's under. Here are a few tips to keep in mind the next time you hit the gym... Visualize the rep before you execute it. It only takes a second to see it in your mind’s eye. Create as much tension throughout your entire body when you’re executing said exercise. Time under tension + Perfect Form =‘s The Dream Rep. If you can’t maintain that tension stop what you’re doing to prevent injury. Fall in love with the “eccentrics.” For example, when you’re doing a push-up go as slow as you can from the top down. You can apply this to every exercise. Be a little schizophrenic and talk to yourself during every rep. I like to always have a mini-checklist I like to run through like a pilot. ie when squatting you should always tell yourself, "maintain a neutral spine, braced abs, knees tracking over your toes, and sit back into your hips." Scary part is I could go on all day about this one movement. When you’re mindful your workouts will FLY by. You won’t have to peek at the clock and think, “OMG, I still have 30 mins left😜!” Being mindful is one surefire way to combat Father Time. Put in the good fight and charge hard friends!

We’ve been very fortunate over the years to train some pretty amazing clients/friends. Reflecting back to what has separated the pack was never anything physical. Instead, it is a tenacious gritty voice that is never heard. It’s a silent voice that is like an internal...
