But this is the challenge, to go back and do what you hate the most just so you can trick your mind to push beyond your own limits.
By doing this, you might not notice it but you are back to doing those exercises or types of equipment you avoided for a long time in the gym.
Find Someone More Sluggish Than You – Mean as it sounds, you and your gym buddy can somehow benefit something from this. When your gym buddy leisurely works out on their own pace, which is a tad slower than you. Then this is your chance to motivate yourself to be better and stronger and go faster. A little competition won’t hurt after all.
And your friend seeing how inspired and motivated you are will surely pick up the pace and aim harder.
