Are you feeling like you’ve hit a plateau at the gym?
You know you can push harder but are stuck sticking to a comfortable pace? Take a look at the athletes around you (don’t be creepy though) and find someone you wish to keep up with. During the workout you can have an awareness of their pacing and use it to help you continue moving–while still focusing on your own movements and form.
The key here is holding loose peripheral awareness.
It is not a race and surely not vicious competition.
It is using the athletes around you to hold yourself accountable if you feel like you need an extra push.
While practicing this peripheral awareness, it is important for you to remember that your central line of vision should always be on your own movements. This includes considering what the intended stimulus is for your body and how you are feeling on that particular day.
Then, once you have crushed your workout, remember to dish out a couple high-fives or fist bumps and be proud of showing up!
