This is not a fitness post. It’s a post about conquering our lesser selves.
.
Fitness just happens to be the arena where I first learned to hone this highly transferable skill we like to call mental resiliency.
.
Enduring physical discomfort can be an opportunity to train the mind to endure mental discomfort.
.
Since most of the things we want in life are on the other side of mental discomfort, aka doing the work, the more we can inoculate ourselves to discomfort or adversity, the easier it becomes to continue to grow and stretch our boundaries, to explore edges and evolve into the human beings that we ultimately want to be.
.
One thing I’ve learned about myself in seeking to master my mind is that I need lines in the sand. Whether that means someone literally drawing a line in the sand to challenge me, or using workout timers, pomodoros, or creating self-imposed deadlines, nothing motivates me like facing that binary judgement: Did I? Or did I not?
.
If you struggle to exhibit the discipline that you want, try creating a sense of urgency by using timers, setting deadlines for yourself, or creatively setting up lines of demarcation to hold you accountable to help you take responsibility and ownership of your actions.
.
This is one place where making it binary helps: Did you or didn’t you rise to meet the challenge? Make it binary so you cannot rationalize your way out of it: either you did or you didn’t. .
Your choice. What’s it going to be?
.
The workout is simple:
5 x Toes to bar
10 x push-ups
20 x KB Swings
Complete 1 round every 2 minutes for 20 minutes (10 rounds)
