I got the idea from the Training for Warriors Certification I did that was created by Martin Rooney. Martin is a top strength and conditioning coach, who does the conditioning for some of the top UFC fighters in the world. You can thank him for Hurricanes!
The other thing about Martin is that he’s an incredible motivator. During our certification, we had to do a few conditioning workouts, at the end of each workout we weren’t allowed to lay down after or act like we were beat, we had to stand up with our hands in the air like we won a fight!
Believe me, I know that sometimes it can be tough to mentally get up for some of our workouts. You’ve sometimes got to fight with yourself just to get out of bed to get to the gym. But, you do it! You beat the voice inside your head telling you “it’s ok, you don’t need to workout”.
It’s a fight to keep your eating clean, especially when you’re around family and friends that aren’t. Your friends keep asking, “Why don’t you eat junk food?” while they’re munching on donut holes.
I mean wouldn’t it just be easier to be out of shape and lazy, kicking back guzzling beer and eating doritos? In some way’s yes, yes it would. No need to fight any cravings or break a sweat.
But you have a goal, whatever that goal may be for you. Get stronger, leaner, look better naked. Whatever it is, it’s enough for you to fight for! You fight the urge to stay home, you fight the cravings for crap food, most times you win, sometimes you lose, but you fight.
Every day keep up that fight, at the end of each round put your hands up like you just won!
