Pushing through a workout when you don’t quite feel it is rough. It all comes down to your mental stamina. This is where having a great workout partner can come in handy, but if you don’t have one or if they are taking the day off these three tips can help you get through those workouts yourself.
Embrace the pain
Unless it’s a medical emergency, chances are you hit your wall and just need a little extra push to get yourself through the rest of the workout. It happens to the best of us, just remember you’ll feel better if you complete the workout. Visualize the end of your workout, that’s your goal for the day.
Positive thinking is really the only way to get through the tough workouts. Pick a mantra (or make one up) and repeat it over and over if you have to.
Know When It’s Time To Quit
If you have truly run out of gas there is nothing wrong with quitting. The last thing you want to do is injure yourself, so when all else fails and you just can’t go on, call it a day and pick it back up tomorrow.
