The Mental Edge: Beating The Doubt Monster & Blazing Your Own Trail

The Mental Edge: Beating The Doubt Monster & Blazing Your Own Trail

The original publishing date of today’s article went up on June 16, 2016.

If you are currently battling with fear and doubt in your life then you are probably in the middle of a fight with a character I refer to as the Doubt Monster. You can win this battle if you want, but you need to understand that you MUST do so in a very specific way.

I think you’ll find today’s article helpful if you’re in your own battle with this character. Make sure to share this with your family and friends. Read and apply.

The key to being able to make the biggest gains both in training and in life is to devote yourself to a cause and to not let up from pursuing that cause regardless of what setbacks, attacks, and downfalls you may encounter. This is where you will find yourself at a crossroads deciding whether or not to weather the storm, or to get blown off the path like a feather in a tornado. If it were easy then everyone would do it, but rest assured that you will learn a lot about yourself and what it takes to have the mental edge to overcome hardship and failure.

The Finisher HIIT Workout To Close Out Your Day’s Training

The Finisher HIIT Workout To Close Out Your Day’s Training

  1. From time to time to close out your day’s training do you perform finisher HIIT workouts? 
  2. Are you familiar with what a finisher is and how to inject it into your training? 
  3. How often do you incorporate finishers into your workouts?

Before I go any further I want to preface by stating the obvious which is that the whole point of your training should be to aim at getting you better. I’ve been a strength and conditioning coach in Atlanta now for nearly 20 years. This has always been the goal.

I think sometimes a common misconception about professional programs is that they are all designed to leave you face down in a puddle of your own sweat and misery with delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) to follow up for the following week.
