It was 2015 and a top 10 ATP-ranked tennis player needed a hitting partner for the Delray Beach Open. At the last minute, I was asked to step in.
I had never before hit with a player of this caliber. I was nervous to say the least. I wanted to perform well and give this guy a great training session. He was in town the full week, and I wanted to be asked back to hit with him again.
I jumped onto the court and started going at it. The guy never missed a ball. And neither did I! I refused to, and so I tuned everything out around me and kept laser focus. After hitting for 10 minutes we had struck countless balls and that 10 minutes felt like an hour!
The lesson: build up to the point where you’re working out incredibly intensely, but where it doesn’t feel like it. To any other player on the court with this top player, the pace and lack of misses would be virtually impossible. But to him, it was commonplace. It was like nothing. But that’s because he had spent years acclimating himself to this type of focused, intense training.
That’s what you should do in your workouts, and what Mission Lean aims to instill in in all of our subscribers. Focus on getting in the most intense workout you can, and not worrying about how long you go for. With consistency and persistence, you will be able to build up to the point where you’re knocking out highly intense workouts like it’s nothing. Just like the Top 10 player was getting in hundreds of strikes of the ball within such a compressed period of time – and it was easy for him.
Your lean body transformation is within reach! Focus on the intensity of your training and don’t compromise for less than top quality. Let’s do this! Mission: Lean.
