“Saw A Vein On My Bicep Today At The Gym So I Guess You Could Say Things Are Getting Serious”. This meme went viral a couple weeks ago and I think it’s hilarious and holds some truth. When you start training hard and training consistently, your body will give you signs that you are doing it correctly. Whether it be you are dropping unwanted pounds, losing inches, gaining muscle, or gaining veins; your body will tell you. When I help people and instruct people I tell them to look at themselves. Yes I can give you an outside perspective but ultimately you are the one that can look in the mirror and see exactly what I see. Train hard, watch your body transform.

Go Hard Or Go Home. Words to live by. You have to put things into perspective. If you are going to invest time into training and going to the gym; why would you not put everything you have into it? Go into the gym with the mindset that you are going to go hard and destroy everything in your workout. Granted, some workout is better than no workout, but I can’t understand why you would go and half ass it to begin with. Go Hard Or Go Home.

I don’t often base preaching on winning or losing but I think it is a valid point to suggest.  The majority of people, whether they say they care or not, really get hurt when they lose at something.  I like this saying because you could take it a couple ways; Think Training’s Hard? Try Losing.  I like to take it in the perspective that I am losing in regards to myself.  I am failing at my goals, I am not making my weights, I am not being dedicated to myself.  This translate often into whether you win or lose in the competition as well.

In coaching gymnastics, I deal with a ton of children and the fact that there is only one winner in a competition.  It is very difficult to get a child to understand that the competition is not the victory but nailing all their routines and breaking their own barriers is the ultimate goal.  Keeping the focus of advancing one self mentally and physically is the ultimate reward.  The medal on your neck is the confirmation that you have done everything yoy have done has paid off.
