The hard days are the ones that matter the most.

We did some serious workouts this week already, so I could have just taken a rest day, but I planned this, and promised myself I would do it. Pushing trough on the days you don’t feel like working out, are (in my opinion) the most important ones, don’t listen to that voice inside your head. GO AHEAD AS PLANNED.

Have a great weekend, GET AFTER IT!



  1. Great video Mark!
    You’re right about the voice in your head telling you to quit, give up or not trying at all!
    The thoughts in your mind aren’t always who you really are!
    So when you do push trough, when your thoughts tell you otherwise, you release the winner inside.
    It will even make you stronger and better in every struggle you may encounter!

  2. Great stuff Mark! Keep it coming. I think you should separate this in two different goals. One being mental training. Making sure you are ready for everything life throws at you. Make it hard on yourself; in sports, in things you need to do around the house, have that conversation you’re not looking forward to, resist and fight to overcome negativity/sickness /setback, etc. I agree you can make yourself better in this by pushing yourself in a physical way (…among other things). The second however, always pushing when you have planned, not listening to what the body tells you, works against optimum physical growth or even more. So you need to play with that and not be afraid to change what was planned.

    • Thanks Arian,
      You should listen to your body, I agree with you, you know best when to quit or not.
      But don’t give in to easy, to reach a goal, you should push on, how do you get better otherwise?

      • Mentally yes; push on. Physically the body gets better in rest. That’s where the adaption takes place. Not in training. E.g. you have been training 5-6 times a week for a while now, right? Consider a four day break with nutrition that nourishes and see what happens!
