How To Get In The Zone When Working Out

Mar 14, 2008
Have you ever had one of those workouts where everything seemed to just "click" and all of your lifts were great?

Where you just felt an extreme energy coursing through your body as you go from one lift to the next, ready to kick it up an even "higher notch."

Let me ask you, are these workouts few and far between for you? Do you wish you could have an awesome workout every single time you wrap your hands around the steel bar?

I'm telling you that you can. What's the alternative, betting that you can't?

Every single time you step into a gym to lift or do cardio, you must approach that workout like it's the very last one you'll ever do.

Truth be told, you really never know if it really will be, but without sounding too morbid, that's the mindset you must have.

I just gave you the key as to what it takes to have a killer workout each and every time you step into the gym.

Your mindset.

It's as simple as this.... Before you can create anything, you have to think it. I challenge anyone to dispute that statement.

Before you have, do, get, build...anything...you have to think what it is your trying to get.

Architects do not start building houses until they have thought of every last little detail. Then they just construct what they thought about.

Approach your workouts and your body the very same way.

You cannot and should not just walk into the gym without thinking of what you want to accomplish and just start throwing some weights around.

It took me years to figure that out and it was years that I was puny and had nothing to show for it. Before even stepping into the gym, know what you're after.

If not, you're spinning your wheels.

So what does that have to do with having a killer workout every single time? Well, if you know what you want to achieve (muscle growth, strength increase, fat loss) you then just have to do those things that will bring those results.

It's funny how many times I've heard the following in the gym while training people:

**I want to lose some body fat but I hate doing cardio.

**I want to add some size or strength to my frame, but I don't have time to eat very much during the day.

**I want to increase my bench but I've just been doing higher reps with lower weight.

Look, I can tell you that you'll almost never achieve your muscle building or fat loss goals if you haven't taken the time to think about how you exactly plan on going about getting them.

Having awesome, muscle blasting workouts are at your disposal any time you want them. It starts with thinking about what you want to achieve.

More muscle, more strength, less body fat. And then it begins with following through on the plan to get those things.

If you know exactly what you want and know the exact steps to get it, how can you NOT have awesome workouts each and every time?

I mean, imagine yourself in the gym, right now, doing only those things that you KNOW are going to boost muscle and strength for you.

Wouldn't you feel more pumped knowing that the stuff you are doing is going to lead you to where you want to be?

That's exactly how you can have awesome workouts every single time you step into the gym....it comes from realizing that you are well on your way to getting what you want.

And that the only thing stopping you is you.

So the next time you step into the gym, approach it with an attitude that says "There is no possible way I can fail."

If I go in there, do every single thing I know I have to do and do it well, success is guaranteed 100% of the time.

What's the alternative, dreading going to the gym and when there, wishing you were somewhere else, so you speed through your workouts just to get them done.

Good luck, for if you do this, chances of you seeing any success is slim to none. I now challenge you to challenge yourself.

Every time you go to workout, make it the single best workout you've ever had.

I can PROMISE you, if you do this every time, not only will you have great workouts every time, but you will also guarantee yourself muscle growth, fat loss, strength, or any other goal you want.
