The UBBT physical conditioning is going great! Getting to sets of 40 reps went well.
Now comes a challenging part for me. What I refer to as, “breaking the psychological barrier”. “What is that”, you ask. It’s getting through the sets of 40 reps and on to the 50’s. Perhaps it’s because I am afraid of some day hitting the 50’s (age that is).
So, what I’ve begun to do is break it down into 20 + 10 + another 20. For some reason that seems to work. Is it because I enjoyed my 20’s more . . . Maybe!
The same thing happens with the one minute of plank. I get to a certain number of seconds and then my body says, “enough already!” But if I know there are only 20 seconds or so to go, then I can get my mind to kick in and psych myself to complete the challenge.
Break your psychological barriers and complete your challenges!
Happy training : )
