I read an interesting post from an affiliate that keeps a can of "YBF" in the gym. When an athlete is getting tired, breaking down mentally, or generally hitting the wall, they quickly grab the remedy and spray it on the client. With the help of better chemistry, a supportive coach, and fellow athletes, they suddenly grit their teeth and get back to work.
The workout starts and we drive hard out of the starting gates. With a full tank of oxygen and ATP, we feel strong. As the repetitions accumulate we start to feel the effects of true output. We demand that the body adapts. Eventually we drop into a mental state far away from where we were. I experience this as a different world where I hear nothing, see little, and have difficulty focusing. Now is the time for reliable navigation instruments….sort of an "autopilot." We need to get negative thoughts out. We pace our efforts and chop it down, one rep at at time. We know it's going to be over soon. You can't quit. You'll be fine. "YBF"
Our St. Louis Affiliate Team competition is coming up. We are all set with the workouts and getting the agenda set. The workouts will not be revealed until Saturday, August 22nd. We are still looking for some judges and a few volunteers. Please let me know if you can assist us.
