Words of Inspiration

What's Holding You Back?: What things are holding you back, preventing you from reaching your full potential? We tend to avoid thinking about such things, because they can be painful. Or we blame our troubles and lack of progress on someone else. Avoiding the real issue may ""feel"" better at the moment. Yet it does nothing to move us forward. The moment you honestly and clearly face your limitations, you begin to transcend them. Yes, it involves effort to work on your shortcomings. In the end, though it will be less effort than you would spend continually working against them. Discovering your limitations gives you a powerful opportunity to be more effective. Once you remove something that's holding you back, you're finished fighting it. That gives you more energy to put into achieving your goals. Take a good, hard look at your fears, your assumptions, your weaknesses. Admit them, and put your effort into overcoming them. It will pay a lifetime of dividends.

Article of the Week

Zone-Tone method: understanding mind-muscle connection: The ""Zone-Tone"" technique, is the art of mentally zoning in and pre-isolating specific muscles just before an exercise to be executed while at the same time maintaining that zone throughout the execution of the movement. This wonderful technique is very easy to grasp and will deliver enormous benefits to your fitness program. Combining proper form and technique with the Zone-Tone method will help you reach all of your fitness goals much faster than conventional practices. The level of isolation and stimulation you will get every time you perform an exercise using this method will increase tenfold. There are several reasons why people fail to create a successful mind-to-muscle connection: Lack of knowledge about anatomy combined with lack of information available on how to successfully create a mind-to-muscle connection. Misinformation on the part of our teachers or books regarding exercise execution. Humans have a difficult time with change since they get accustomed to doing the same old thing and feel more comfortable and less at risk by doing so. As a result, they refuse to change the way in which they conduct their exercises. Lifting gargantuan weights without any concern for proper exercise form in order to satisfy our ego. more...
