That title really should read “focus upon your breath, and not so much the reps”. This is key not just to achieving superior fitness levels, but to accomplishing ANY goal you set for yourself in life, bar none.
I talk about deep breathing REPEATEDLY in my book. Some might even say “I carp” on it, and so be it. It is what it is, and I cannot emphasize ENOUGH the importance of deep breathing done correctly.
In fact if there were TWO things I could teach you from my entire book, they would be deep breathing as well as the very best exercise there is, PERIOD.
People focus way too much on completing the “desired number of reps” as opposed to actually focusing upon the movement itself – and there is a deep inhale/exhale involved with EVERY REP!
Breathe deeply, and stay calm, and THEN complete, or move towards completing your desired number of reps. You’ll find this method catapults you not just to the “desired” number of reps, but way, way beyond in some cases.
Not to mention the incredible buzz you get from it – and that, my friend, can only be EXPERIENCED to fully understand what I’m referring to.
As an aside, the other tip I want to hand out today is to “mix in the tough with the easy”. So do a tough exercise for say 5 reps, and then pound out the easy one for about 20. Focus upon your breathing during those movements.
That’s just an example, of course. Modify per your own needs.
All for now!
