A big part of being a good athlete is the ability to train yourself to be both mentally and physically capable. I remember when I was in high school, I was so mentally and physically capable that I was able to run a mile in under 13 minutes. I still remember that the day I ran a mile in 13 minutes, I broke my tibia. In fact, that was the only significant injury I sustained while doing anything athletic for the 8 years I was a teenager.
Being a good athlete isn’t easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Training yourself to be both mentally and physically capable is a process that takes time. The goal is to not only train your body properly to keep up with your workouts, but to train your mind as well. There are many different ways to train your mind to be both mentally and physically capable. And I’m not talking just about doing cross-training exercises. I’m referring to various kinds of mindfulness exercises.
Mindfulness is about paying attention to the present moment. The first step is to become more aware of how you are feeling. If you aren’t feeling a certain emotion, find a way to practice being aware of it. The second step is to focus on what you are feeling, and notice what brings you comfort.
I’ve been using the app Mindfulness Training for my personal training since last year. I can’t get enough of it. There are so many ways to do it, and I’ve used it as a way to help my clients. I have a client who is a lawyer, and has been in the practice for over 40 years. I was in a car accident when I was in my early twenties. He is now in his early sixties, and he still trains daily.
When I first started working with him, he said his training consisted of running, cycling, and bodyweight training with a heavy bag. He said he still feels great when he trains in this style. He’s a big guy, 6’2” 200lbs, and has a 40 year history of training in this form of exercise.
I have seen this happen many times to athletes, and most of the time it’s because they have been undertrained. However, there have been times when it was because they were simply tired. I personally have seen it happen with both men and women athletes.
And I’ve seen it happen on both sides of the spectrum. As a woman, I have seen many athletes I knew turn into big, fat dogs because of years of overtraining. And as an athlete, I have seen many athletes who were once strong and powerful turn into fat, ugly, and lazy drunks. There are no universal answers here though. Some people will train in the right way and feel great, other people will train in the wrong way and feel awful.
I can think of several reasons why someone might train in the wrong way, but the most common one is that they don’t know what they’re doing. I know this because I myself have always thought that if I didn’t know what I was doing, I would be a terrible athlete.
In other words, I have always thought that if I wasnt really trying to be an athlete, then I would be a terrible athlete. Well, I was wrong.
I was also one of the people who thought that if I wasn’t training hard, I would be a terrible athlete. Turns out, I was wrong all along.
