Here’s a question I’ve had since beginning my workout journey and to be honest, I still don’t have the answer. But I do have a hot tip that can help YOU power through a tough workout.
The big question: In the middle of an intense workout when you’re feeling like you can’t go much further is it best to pause, take a short break and get some water OR is it better to just keep on going?
As I’ve said, I don’t have the answer to this. But here’s my story…
My strategy has always been to pause my workout when it gets too intense. That way, I can continue and give it my all instead of only half-assing the remainder of the workout. However, I noticed that each time doing the workout routine, I would pause at the same exact spot. Mentally, I thought my body NEEDED a break at that specific time. This is false!
One day I said “screw it, I’m going straight through the workout today”! I didn’t care if I didn’t perform at my highest level towards the end. I just wanted to prove to myself I could do the entire workout without breaks. And I DID IT!
It’s all mental. Think strong powerful thoughts before and during a workout. Don’t tell yourself you need a break at a certain point because you’ll end up tricking your body into thinking it needs that break when you really don’t.
