Going Through The Motion


Just getting in hours will not do it. Anyone can go through the motions, huff and puff and look like they are working. Just doing work is not good enough; you must train with ICE- Intensity, Concentration, Effort. If you consistently achieve a high ice score eight to ten on a ten-point scale. A score of ten being frigid, ice cold then you will the workout. If you can consistently win workouts then you give yourself a chance to perform in competition, remember there are no guarantees. Champions are champions everyday, when there are no crowds, no coaches, and no teammates, just you against the clock or the weight. It is all about the will to prepare.
