How to Push Yourself Harder While Working Out
I want to share a secret with you that will help you get more out of yourself when you’re working out or exercising.
You know what it’s like when you’re going along and you hit the wall, where you feel like you can’t do anymore? Maybe you feel like your pump is too much to push out one more rep or you’re just too tired to push yourself through and go that extra mile while you’re hiking or jogging?
That’s a tough place to be. You know the results you want are on the other side of the discomfort or pain that you’re feeling and at the same time it can be very hard to push through pain or discomfort, even when you know what you want is on the other side.
When or if you find yourself wanting to quit and you know you must continue to get the results you want, here’s a secret you can use starting today to push yourself harder and get even more from your workouts and exercise.
Imagine That You Float Out of Your Body and Up Above Yourself, So You Are Watching Yourself do the Exercise.
What’s that like and why does it work?
Allowing your awareness to float out of your body and up above yourself in the air, while you watch yourself do those last couple of reps or push through that last mile, is called dissociation. It allows you to get away from the physical discomforts that are going on in your body. By getting away from those discomforts, you’ll find that you can push yourself harder than you thought you could push yourself. And as you know, being able to push yourself harder is what allows you to get the growth you want.
If all you ever do is go to where it’s uncomfortable or where it starts to be uncomfortable and then stop, then you’re cheating yourself out of maximal growth—that’s on the other side—because you’ve trained yourself to stop when it gets tough. Stopping when it gets tough is a great path to mediocrity! You’re better than that!
You’ve Got to Push Through the Discomfort!
You’ve got to push through the pain!
You’ve got to get yourself to a point where you’re growing beyond what you used to hold yourself accountable for or capable of!
So next time you’re exercising or working out and you find yourself in a situation where you’re just not sure whether you can push out that next rep or push yourself through to go the extra distance that you know you really want to go, try that trick! Allow your awareness to float out of your body, up above yourself, and look down and imagine that you’re watching yourself do the exercise or do the reps.
Give this a shot and let me know how well it works for you.
