DO TRY THIS AT HOME:
While exercising on the Arc trainer, count from 1000 down to zero, while actually visualizing the image of each number in your brain.
(You can thank me later.)
Sometimes, when I work out on the Arc, I count up to 100 in groups of 3’s.
3. 6. 9. 12. 15. 18 – And so on.
Or in reverse 99. 96. 93. 90.
The other day, I decided to close my eyes while counting.
Then I upped my game and counted from a thousand, all the way to zero.
Then I really took it up a notch by visualizing each number, as I was counting.
I noticed that ‘seeing’ the number in my brain, is actually different from ‘counting’.
It’s much easier to count without seeing the image of the number.
Let me tell you, it was insanely hard but I held strong and did not quit. It took me a full half hour to complete!
It was the first time I did it. I got to try to do it more often.
It’s definitely a mental #exercise for focus.
My brain got confused. Riled up. Listening to music aggravated it.
All you need is discipline. Don’t give up.
During the workout, when I noticed how difficult it was, I wanted to cut down. Count only to 500.
I said, NO!
Count to 500. Then another 100. And another 100.
With discipline in place, there is no reason why I can’t get to zero.
