An Easy Trick to Exercise Longer and Harder

Trick to Exercise Longer and HarderThere is always a purpose behind exercising. Of course, why would anyone want to put himself or herself through the pain of exercising without a goal in mind? In order to be able to exercise longer and harder, you have to keep a few things in mind. Together these tips can be used as a trick to help you improve your workouts.

Your Goal

In order to be motivated to exercise harder and longer, you need to have a mantra that will help you push harder. This mantra should be derived from your fitness goal. For example, if you want to lose weight to look better at your wedding that is a month or two away, your mantra should be “I want to look gorgeous in two months” and you should hold that image in your head. This mantra works because you have a reason to push yourself. By reminding yourself of the reason, your resolve stays strong throughout the workout.

Your Attitude

It is all about the attitude with which you begin your workout. If you have a negative attitude, your body will react according to what is going on in your mind. With a negative attitude, even the most pleasant of situations can seem like the worst. By maintaining a positive attitude, you can make even the most unpleasant situation feel like a piece of cake—well, not literally, of course. But stay positive by believing that you are performing this workout because you enjoy the benefits and you like the way it makes you look and feel.

Your Mindset

A winner’s mindset will get you to the end goal. A loser’s mindset will not get you anywhere. This is why, in order to exercise longer and harder, you need to feel like a winner. Get into the mindset of a winner and believe that anything is possible. You can accomplish any task that is put in front of you! If you begin a workout with this mindset, the possibilities will be endless.

Your Thoughts

During the workout, the thoughts going through your head are all that matters. If you are working hard but are cursing and swearing at the pain, you won’t be able to get far. Think positively: “In order to get to my weight loss goal, I have to get through this exercise, so no matter how tough it is, it is getting me closer to my goal.” If you focus on why you are working out and on the end results, you will be able to push yourself harder than ever.

The secret trick to working out harder and longer is to detach yourself from what you are experiencing by realizing that the workout is something you have to go through in order to lose weight. When you detach emotions from a workout, you are able to exercise longer and harder because your mindset is to get through it to the end. If you are in pain, remind yourself that this is temporary and the only way you will get to where you want to be.
