I walked into the gym with a scowlly face. When asked how I was, I said - grouchy! The guy at the desk just laughed and said - go work that shit out.
I left laughing, smiling, and dripping sweat.
All it does for me is make me have to pee more. To the point I have to interrupt my workout to run to the bathroom. Maybe that’s where the extra calorie burn comes from? The many times you have to run to the bathroom. LOL
One thing I do is to close my eyes, or focus off into space and visual what I am about to do. Imagine the whole range of movement, the muscles I will engage, where my weight needs to be for balance, and how good it will feel when I’ve done it.
Sometimes I have to go through that visualization a couple to times before I start.
All I can say about the Pistol Squat is… OMG!
There is no such thing as getting toned or toning up.
Tone is what your muscle looks like at rest.
You have to have muscle first.
This would be nice..
But I really believe that, for me at least, it’s a conscious decision every day that has nothing to do with habit and everything to do with making good choices and staying consistent.
This is what helped keep me on point when I had to take 8 weeks off at the gym.
I hated it.
I never, ever thought I would say that.
Someday comes sooner that you can possibly imagine.
Even if you try and fail.
Try and fail again.
Keep at it. Success will happen.
Love your body enough to take care of it.
No one else.
