I want to take some time talk about visualization and how I practice this powerful technique.
This second step after setting a goal step is visualizing yourself at the finish line. This goes for anything in life not just the gym.
I came across a lifter struggling with the same old “Are my arms going to grow, WTF?”. My response – visualize them with peaks as high as Everest! Or that bicep is the biggest meatball crafted by the best chef in Italy! Anything to take your mind of the same old rut and visualize yourself in the place you want to be.
I use visualization for weak body parts but also right before heavy lifts. My favorites are transforming into the hulk (yess…) or going super saiyan (Goku, not Vegeta) right before that heavy squat set.
It takes practice but once you can use this technique there are no limits. You will go where you want to go and be who you want to be when you need to, even for just a few seconds!
