Your Mind Over Muscle

When you initially think about working out and lifting weights what comes to mind? Maybe the grueling ordeal you will experience in the gym? The sweat flying as you power through rep after rep after rep. This is definitely a part of it. But is it everything?

You have to have a mental strength in order to walk in that gym in the first place. We have to view it as your training ground. Just stepping through the door isn’t going to do anything for you. It takes grit, tenacity, and mental strength to walk in and know it’s time to work.

Does this mean that you’re going to feel like it and get pumped every time? Hell no. There are days when you are going to feel like puking the whole time, or where all you can think about is sleep. But you know what? Suck it up buttercup. This is one thing at Bones to Bulk that I talk on all the time, it takes work. If this was easy everyone would be walking around with a six pack and bulging biceps. No one said this would be easy.

When you set out to change yourself in any aspect of life regardless of what area, it’s hard. It’s tough, it’s challenging and that’s exactly what makes us better and stronger. It’s not about being in the gym a certain amount of time. It’s about going until you literally cannot go anymore. Give your all in the gym. If you give it your all, it will give you what you seek in return.
