I came across this really interesting post called 'Mindfulness in the Gym'. The main message to take away from this is to be present mentally during the workout process. Make each movement, exercise, rep and set count because let's face it, we don't have all day in the gym, so make the most out of every opportunity you get. Ask yourself why am I doing a particular exercise? Does it feel right? Going into an exercise with a preconceived rep count often leads to a tendency to perform the exercise fast. Try listening more to your body and let it decide the reps. There is a lot more to it than just going through the motions. Take this mindset with you to your workouts for the next month and see how you improve, you may be surprised.
