My mind was set. All I wanted was to get my deadlift up to 4 plates.
This was my priority number 1.
I pushed my other lifts also but all my focus was on this goal.
Having just one goal will give you tremendous focus.
And this is a big struggle for most guys I talk to.
No excitement about training. Not looking forward to the gym.
No destination. No plan.
This is for you guys.
For the guys who have a plan and need a break from goals, this is not for you.
So having no passion for training. You don't have thoughts in your head while sitting at work about getting into the gym and crushing pullups.
Or how you can't wait to feel the sweat from your sled pulling after your lifting.
The problem of having no real zest for the physical. For hard training. The work. The grunting. Sweating. Swearing. Moaning and groaning that comes from real tough physical exertion.
What should you do to get it going?
Find something, anything really, that you can get excited about. Maybe it's one exercise you really enjoy because it's easy. Or one muscle group that seems to grow easy for you. Or a good challenge that gets you amped, maybe it's a crazy workout of the day that scares you a little bit.
Anything will work.
The feel of the barbell. The sound of the weights clanging.
The high after your session when you sip on your protein shake as you drive home. A feeling of accomplishment in your veins.
Just get that one tiny flame. Find it. And ride it. Let it take you to the gym. Or your garage or the park. Wherever.
Passion for physical fitness.
It doesn't have to be a gym.
In fact, there are NO limits here.
But don't let another day, week, or year go by without making some kind of physical progress.
