If you’re just rolling into your workouts, without much thought to what you’re eating beforehand, coming right out of your checking your emails, pre-occupied with something else, answering phone calls mid-workout, etc etc …
You are NOT making the gains you could be.
Because FOCUS is a HUGE part of the battle, in getting a high quality workout.
And high quality workouts, done consistently, over time, is what gets you the GAINZ!!
I highly recommend that you implement a regular routine before your training sessions.
This could look something like:
– Eat – a similar meal or snack – an hour or two before your workout
– Listen to music to get you jacked up, starting 5 or 10 or 15 mins before your workout
– Get your workout clothes ready and the space you are going to work out ready
– Turn off your phone / emails / etc
– Take your pre-workout supplements
Everyone is different, and so everyone’s routine will look different.
The important thing is that you need to do what you need to do to get your mind and body right, and focused, before your training sessions.
Implement that, starting at your next workout, and see your gains go thru the roof!
PS – Mental focus can be enhanced by supplementation, no doubt about it.
Instead (or even in addition to) a traditional pre-workout, something I have experimented with – and have seen some pretty amazing results with! – is nootropics.
Bacopa is the #1 nootropic herb. This herb has been proven in studies to help with memory and focus. And it is on sale right now as part of the Lost Emipre “Brain Week” sale – so it’s a good time to give it a try if you are curious:
