Train Like An Athlete

athlete  Within each of us lies the potential for greatness.  Our bodies yearn to reflect the glory & strength that they were created to reveal.  It is up to each of us as individuals to honor the Creator & allow this beauty to be seen.  Through discipline, hard work & focused commitment we give our bodies an opportunity to rise up to their destiny.

Great athletes set themselves apart in their talent through dedication to their training.  Although their bodies look like they were carved by the gods, it’s not about aesthetics for them, but performance.  They approach every aspect of their training with the mindset to become their personal best.  They give themselves every chance to succeed.  They eat foods that will fuel their goals.  They give their best to the mental and physical aspects of their workouts.  As icing on the cake they get a banging body.

I get that many of us can’t train exactly like an athlete.  We don’t have hours to commit to that type of training regimen each day.  However, we can adopt the mindset of an athlete and give our best to the 3+ hours a week we do have along with the dedication to a healthy lifestyle.

Training tips:

  1. Don’t get hung up on appearance.  It can derail your chances for success.  Instead focus on performing better than your previous workout.
  2. Don’t compare yourself to others.  Compete with your best self.
  3. Commit to the process.  Athletes train for years to develop their potential.  Make this a lifestyle.
  4. Focus on improving something about yourself and your workouts.

Be watching for my next post where I will share one of my personal workouts for training like an athlete.
