Pay attention, because I’m going to let you in on a huge secret when it comes to body building techniques. It’s a secret the most well-known bodybuilders use to ensure total success, and I’m going to give it away right here. This may be the post powerful information you’ve ever read.
When it comes to body building techniques, it seems like everybody has an opinion. Line up a half dozen bodybuilders and you’re probably going to get a half dozen opinions on how to implement a proper weight training program. While you’re going to have to focus on your body to deliver the serious gains you’re looking for, I’m going to share with you one of the most powerful body building techniques you’ll ever encounter. I’m calling this a secret, but it isn’t such a secret after all.
Do you want to dramatically sculpt your body and see those killer results that the serious, competitive bodybuilders achieve? Then you need to focus on your preparation, and in particular, on your mental approach to your workout. Before you start lifting, start by getting yourself in the right frame of mind. Prepare your mind, then develop your body.
The first mental body building technique is a simple one: create a positive attitude. Negativity doesn’t only take a serious toll on your mind, but it can have a negative impact on your body as well. A negative outlook can affect your focus and concentration, and it can drain your physical energy. Resolve right now to approach your body building regimen with only a positive outlook to ensure your best chance at positive results. Look forward to each and every workout, and if you find yourself walking into the gym with something other than a positive frame of mind, simply stop, take a moment to assess your outlook, find the cause of your negative feelings, and then replace those thoughts with positive ones.
Once you’ve committed yourself to always maintaining a positive frame of mind, you’re ready to employ the second of my mental body building techniques: visualization. Like a classic sculptor who had the finished design of his masterpiece in mind before he ever chipped away a single bit of marble, you should visualize the completed masterpiece that will be your physique when you’ve finally reached your goals. Create a mental picture of what your body is going to be when you’ve fulfilled its full potential. Study your mental image and apply the body building techniques that will best deliver that chiseled body you desire. See it, and then be it.
Finally, your mental preparation should include my third technique: exercise the mind as well as exercising the body. Engage yourself in mind-stimulating activities when you’re outside the gym. Don’t focus intently on building your body and then allow your brain to turn into mush! Stay sharp and mentally acute by reading, by studying body building techniques, by learning as much as you can about nutrition and health issues, and then apply those mind-enhancing activities to your body-enhancing workout.
I don’t care which physical techniques you actually employ, if you’re not prepared mentally then you’re selling every single workout short. Without good mental preparation, you’ll never be able to perform to your fullest potential. Start with the right frame of mind and attack every session like it’s your most important session ever. Practice the three mental body building techniques: positive attitude, visualization, and mental agility so that you’re certain to make the most out of your workouts.
