Should I mentally rehearse the exercise before I start it?
Should I mentally rehearse the exercise before I start it? How can that help?
Yes, this will help you set your intention on the exercise, yielding the most results. To get even more out of every set, visualize yourself going through the exercise to your fullest exertion and then, just when you can see yourself going any further, see and feel you yourself going past that point, really feel it in your nervous system.
Imagine yourself pushing or pulling out 3 or 4 more reps. Now when you step up to do your set, I can assure you you will blow your own mind by moving past your limiting beliefs, it’s all between your ears my friends!
When should I stretch? Before, after or during a workout? Why?
Sometimes I am upset about my day or try to channel my anger out on the exercises, is that healthy or is there a better way?
