Progressive = Strength and Endurance

March 31, 2016

It’s amazing how just focusing on words has so much power. I recently had the word “strength” inked on me and I envision the word all the time now to draw on that which I’ve been permanently marked with. That hasn’t been the only word I’ve been focused on lately, particularly in the gym.

I want to grow. I want my body to keep changing, therefore, I’ve been bringing the word “progressive” into my mind regularly while lifting. Progressive as in progressive overload. If you want to grow, if you want your body to continue changing, you have to challange it to make progress. It has been working for me.

Envisioning these words has given me the power I need. I have the strength to dig deeper. I have the strength to push through for five more reps… to add 10 more pounds… to shorten the time it takes me to run a mile. Since I’ve been back in the gym after work (for round 2) and doing cardio regularly, I’ve shaved 4½ minutes off my time running a mile.

Fitness starts in and is driven by your mind. Today the owner of my gym was apparently having the men’s restroom renovated. I was deadlifting close by and completely oblivious. The gym crowd was mortified by a smell I didn’t even notice. I think that was a testament to how trained my mind is right now. It is just me and my unstoppable mission. My mind is right and it’s unbelieveable how focused it’s become.

Here are two great articles and a video about progressive overload. I plan on staying on this mission until my very last breath.

Strong: Rules to Live By

March 7, 2016

On March 4th, 10 RULES OF THE INSANELY STRONG by Matt Kroc of T-Nation came through to my inbox. Physical Culturist always  publishes the greatest articles. These rules are ones to live by. I loved that this article came through a few days before I’ll have the word “strength” inked on me… added permanently to my skin archive.

I absolutely loved this article that I recieved in my inbox today. Down with stereotypes. We can be many, many things… never limited by the box that is drawn around us. ~~•Felicia

411 on the Smith

December 16, 2015

The Smith seems to be a comfortable place for people who are new to the gym to start, but if you’ve been there long enough, you know that nothing beats free weights. I use the Smith machine for standing calf raises. That’s it. This article from my WordPress feed is spot on about changing attitudes with regard to using the Smith. I’d say rack pulls should be done in the rack! Right?
