Stronger bodies happen when you lift more.
Stronger minds happen when you do something that scares you and often. Some of you getting to the gym may be the scary part.
When you’re in a dark place, getting out of it is hard, seemingly impossible.
You need to see the gym as your “church” though, the place you go to cleanse your mind of the bad stuff, the bad bits that go through your mind all the time.
The gym has a cleansing effect because for a small amount of time, you need to concentrate on other things that demand your immediate attention.
Everyone lives with a certain amount of baggage of some kind and how we deal with it is of paramount importance. Leave it build up inside of you and the all the bad stuff builds up, until it becomes hard or impossible to move.
Training gives it a nudge, smashing your training sessions so they are tough gives it an almighty kick that for a time blasts it out of your system.
This is when regular training sessions, done with a good intensity will eventually clear your mind, making you dominate your situation instead of the bad situation dominating you.
There is a time for aggression in life and it’s very much appropriate in the gym with a load of iron underneath you. Working out hard regains your focus in life that you may have lost, working out regularly gets you back in control of a situation that threatened to take over all your thoughts.
Make training your church, and visit it 3 times a week to make you feel better than you have done in a long time.
