Sorry for the downer email subject, but did you ever have
this happen to you?
I was training last night and I just couldn’t focus.
My brain was all over the place.
I was doing the best to be present, but, alas, I was not.
I have a lot of stuff going on in the background – noise
mostly. But also a lot of life change stuff.
The whole training session was a constant battle.
Distractions in the mind pulling me willy-nilly, to and fro,
back and forth.
Fortunately, I didn’t have that much to do.
I know that a lot of people – maybe even you – like a lot
of “variety” in their workouts. Lots of different exercises –
But when life is crazy, the more complex things are, the
simpler my workouts – your workouts – should be.
(Thank God my coach writes me simple workouts cause
he knows how much I’ve got on my plate right now…)
Ok, wait, where was I?
Got side-tracked by the parenthesis – LOLz…
Oh yeah, not being able to focus.
Yes, that’s the word.
The one we all need – to stifle distractions, to tune out noise
and to actually get done what we need to get done.
So I asked if this has ever happened to you.
You get distracted.
You lose focus.
Yeah, then, you’re reminded about your focus – to FOCUS
and HEY PRESTO! –
What was a struggle turns into a Win!
Well that’s exactly what happened to me last night on my
very last set of front squats.
It ended up being one of my best sets in recent memory.
Last set, best set.
And looking back, that’s easy to do when your routine – your
program is SIMPLE.
ESPECIALLY during times of hardship, change, turmoil, or
stress. (Like I said, thank God for my coach.)
That’s one of the reasons people are so successful with
“Kettlebell STRONG!” – it literally forces them to focus.
It’s minimalism – very carefully structured minimalism at its
No messing around.
Just in, out, strong.
