DAY 40

by

Ladies,

Other than genetics (which we can’t control), there are 2 factors that determine how you look: your exercise habits and your diet.

We all know how important eating clean is, and quality is as important as quantity.  But let’s look at the other factor….exercise.

Have you ever noticed how two people can do the exact same fitness routine for a period of time and one will have breathtaking results while the other looks the same as when they started?

Why is that?

The answer…INTENSITY –  the intensity with which you exercise.

Intensity is something that’s difficult for the outside observer to measure but is felt within your body as you go through the motions of an exercise.

  • It’s how hard you push yourself to go as heavy and as quickly as possible.
  • It’s picking up a weight that feels hard to handle.
  • It’s putting a boost behind each stride as you run.
  • It’s resisting the urge to simply go through the motions.
  • It’s outdoing your efforts from last time.

Now I understand that we all have days when the weights feel extra heavy and our energy stores feel depleted, and those days will naturally be less intense.

However, when low intensity workouts are your norm, you simply won’t ever achieve the results that you’re hoping for.  And this is something that you completely control.

So, as you go into your next workout, think about the intensity that you’re bringing. Are you pushing yourself with each rep? Could you go a little heavier? Could you be a little faster?

Fight the urge to be comfortable while you exercise. There’s plenty of time throughout your day to feel comfortable, just not while you’re working out.

Does this make sense?

Attack your next workout with 100% intensity and set a new standard for yourself to continuously push to become stronger, faster, leaner and more fit.

YOU CAN DO IT!!!
