As I mentioned last week, I found some great info on the optimum heart rate level to train at for endurance sports. It is quite different from the high intensity trend that is popular today. Well I started it last week and I was very surprised at the results. Let me tell you all about it and then you can decide for yourself if you’d like to give it a whirl.
I was at the gym today and a older gentleman came up to me and said, “You should try smiling. It will make it easier.” This was right in the middle of a set of bicep curls which I was having some trouble with. He had a playfulness in the delivery of his comment and my smile complied immediately partly because I felt a little foolish. So I continued to smile through the rest of the set and you know what? This guy was right!!
This was a big aha moment for me!
