Question for those of you that workout

And by workout I mean do more than a casual jog or bike ride - meaning you actually push yourself to improve yourself. What do you prefer when you struggle - positive motivation "Cmon! You can do it! YAAAAAYY!!", or more of a hard approach "Keep going mothafuka! Lift that **** you ****!"?

 

 

 

My wife & her sister tend to like the rainbows & sunshine approach. However, due to my military background, Ive learned to respond best when someone calls me out and talks **** to me.I really cant workout with anyone who doesnt share the same approach. Its very counter intuitive.

Self motivation is the best for me. I was always big on keeping track of my performance, and always pushing to do more, or do it faster. Now, I'm more of a "casual" athlete.

 

 

cool..but, even what it comes to personal motivation, do you tend to think in terms of just bettering yourself, or do you sorta tell yourself there is something deeper at stake?

I went to McDonald's the other day and the drive-thru was packed, car park was quite full too. I decided to test myself and walk into the store from almost the back of the car park. I had top stop 3 times to reach for my inhaler before making it to the door and passing out.

What did you order doe?

Love these feel good stories about fellow athletes breaking personal records.

Lol Lies. You need a cane to walk let alone lift weights.

 

I keep track of the reps, weight, and rest. It's a constant struggle to improve.

Are parking lots referred to as "car parks" in Aus?

Positive motivation and that hard approach doesn't work for me.

 

i just try to clear my mind and reinforce the fact i know i could push further. More of a zen approach i suppose.

 

I find working out with people to be a major distraction from the workout. 

Your online persona reflects this as well.

 

I would also imagine you wear yoga pants to work out in. Accurate?
