One of the most important habits I’ve ever developed is making each rep count.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a warm up or max attempt. Each rep has a purpose, and I focus on achieving that purpose every time.
You may be thinking that this is just way too crazy. How are you supposed to have fun and enjoy your workout when you’re focusing this hard?
Personally, I have found this brings me more enjoyment. I find that I keep getting stronger, faster, more enduring and so on.
This focus brings me better results, so of course I’m going to be happier with my training.
It also helps block out distractions, be it internal, like the happenings at work or school bouncing around in your head.
Or external, like that really annoying song blaring over the speakers…
the conversation two guys are having next to me when they’re supposedly ‘working out’…
Or the really tough one’s, like that curvy gym bunny, who, no matter where I look, seems to be doing bent over row directly in my line of sight.
Tune in next time to find out the deeper underlying reason for making each rep count.
Here’s a hint, it has to do with temporal physics, time travel to be precise.
Train Smart, Train Hard
