MUSIC MAKES ME FEEL ALIVE
Music plays a big part in my training. Music is so powerful, it creates a mood, even when you are feeling down it lifts you up.
Anybody who has bounced a little in a boxing stance in front of a mirror with the theme song from Rocky playing in the background, understands the hidden power of music. Songs can be triggers, activating emotional, psychological and then physical reserves inside us that help transform us into something greater than ourselves. Music can do this because it has a neurological effect on our minds that is then transformed into a physiological effect in our bodies.
Our Bhangrablaze Music is so uplifting, it gives you the strength and courage to keep going. Upbeat music makes you want to move mountains, it breathes new energy into your every move. The right song at the right time can give you the extra boost and see you through a tough set and then another one, and another one and another one after that. Every time you work out you don’t just fight your body’s current limitations, you fight an inner battle with yourself so what you listen to at that particular moment in time is critical.
When you go through physical barriers enough times you become physically better and mentally tougher. That means you will be able to pick yourself up with sheer willpower, your own inner strength will be enough to get you through anything. There will still be some days however when you will need that extra pick me up and believe me I have had those days. YES I DO but then MUSIC always helps me get in the right frame of mind which then helps my body perform. Sometimes it helps me relax and other times it prepares me for battle. It is a very powerful tool especially when the mind is feeling weak - and even people who are used to difficult training sessions, athletes and other people who make it all look easy, have these moments. We all need a pick-me-up every now and then. There are days when we don’t want to get out of bed never mind go all out during a workout and when that happens, it simply works to turn off the thinking processes all together and lose ourselves in the rich, evocative imagery thrown up by a powerful song that means a lot to us.
Although we all want to be healthy and strong, physically and mentally and we all want to be warriors and heroes there is a reason why only a few of us ever are. It’s not our will power we usually have plenty of that. It is our rational mind that will tell us that we’ve had enough that perhaps it’s just not worth fighting for another few kilometers or training for another twenty minutes, tomorrow is a good day to start again and so on. You need to learn to ignore that.
In fitness, there are no days off, you’ve got to show up whether you want to or not, that’s how exceptional people are made, it doesn’t mean they are all chirpy and willing all the time but they do show up no matter what. On days of weakness, sometimes it’s better not to think but just go ahead and do it.
YOUR MIND WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU TELL IT.
