As athletes, our focus often lies primarily in improving our physical strength. However, solely building up our athletic capabilities is useless if we aren’t also training the mental support system that allows us to reach our physical peak.
Ultimately, from powerlifting to ultra marathons to rucking, our most challenging fitness endeavors are stopped not by a lack of physical skill, but instead by our ability to endure mental strife. However, when we commit to conquering challenges and not letting mental blocks stand in the way, our ability to dig in, tap into our unseen strength, and press through exhaustion separates success from failure. That’s why this month, we’re focusing on mental endurance. It’s time to kick summer malaise in the ass and fully commit to going all out and becoming a more mentally strong athlete.
