…there’s only a handful of people I’d considering doing those workouts with.
Though it’s true that high-intensity training yields the greatest fitness benefits
…that’s only true if the person is willing to go HIGH INTENSITY.
And that, people, is NOT for everyone.
Not everyone will endure pain.
Not everyone can put aside negative thoughts.
Not everyone is able to minimize that booming voice in the head that says “Quit.”
HI training is a magic pill…if and only if…the person has that little bit wrong with their mind.
Chasing pain, grinding the burn deeper rather than letting up
…almost an effort to reduce the self to nothing.
And that’s the mental barrier for most folks
…too much ego involved in being better, or looking good, not messing up or looking stupid.
…actually looking for something.
The handful of folks…free the ego,
…intentionally go out of their way to make it ugly, jump into the pain.
“Nothing isn’t better or worse than anything. Nothing is just…nothing.”
