Tip of the Day: Increase the weight beyond what your mind tells you. I’m never one to suggest heavy weights without reason. I think proper form is the most important element of weight training we can focus on. Still, it’s funny how our mind tends to trick us into getting comfortable with what’s familiar. If you’ve been curling those 10lb dumbbells for a year now, you’re probably pretty comfortable with that weight. Yet, our minds tell us… go for those 10 pounders each time we complete a bicep curl. Stretch yourself every once and awhile. Pick up that set of 15’s and curl them! When you complete the movement with proper form for suggested rep range, you may be surprised, but I’m certainly not! I know you’re so much stronger than you think! I still struggle with this. Just the other day, I realized I was dumbbell bench pressing the same weight for over a year; I increased it and completed it with ease. It’s almost like we forget to push ourselves outside of our comfort zones. Our minds like to keep us safe, but stepping beyond our limits is where amazing things happen! Now that’s a lesson I need to learn to better apply to my life outside the gym!
