" Stop thinking about losing body fat.
Focus on your performance instead.
It sounds counterintuitive, but this is important.
When you’re in the gym your main concern should not be burning fat and calories. Your sole focus should be improving your performance. Getting stronger. Doing just a little better than last time.
Not only is this more positive (focusing on getting stronger instead of thinking “I need to look better”) and enjoyable, but it’ll also allow you to reap the physique changes you desire along the way.
Focus on goals like deadlifting one and a half times, or double, your bodyweight, performing several chin-ups, pressing and pulling progressively heavier dumbbells, running more hill sprints, etc. Put the focus on what your body can do, and strive to get stronger, gradually. Do this and fat loss becomes a side effect.Nia Shanks (via motiveweight)
" A warrior feeds her body well. She trains it, works on it. Where she lacks knowledge, she studies. But above all, she must believe in her strength of will and purpose and heart and soul.David Gemmel (via tobeheal-ed)
