I’ll never forget my first Syphus Training workout and how challenging it was for me. There was a point when I got to a task called “inchworm” and felt like I was going to die but I also loved pushing my body like this. It was hard but I wanted to keep going. I looked over at the others in the class flying by and I just knew that would be me one day. I was determined to get there. I thrive on a little healthy competition and the drive and curiosity on how to master these Syphus tasks was boggling my mind.

That night I took just 3 minutes closed my eyes and visualized myself doing perfect inchworms across the Syphus turf without stopping. I have always used vision boards and visualization in other areas of my life so I thought it couldn’t hurt.

The next workout surprisingly inchworms were much easier. I knew I was onto something. From that point on I continued to take the time to visualize myself doing some of my most challenging tasks with ease and good form and found they began to get easier and I was getting better.

Fast forward to now 4 years later and I am still using visualization in many parts of my workout. Along with proper nutrition, restful sleep, and mental control visualization helps me push through each and every Syphus workout I do.

You can use visualization for any workout you are doing.  Whether its lifting, mastering a certain HIIT workout, running, yoga, or simply doing more pull-ups VISUALIZATION can help you!

Visualization is used by many elite athletes as a sort of a “mental rehearsal” to achieve their desired outcome. It creates their dream outcome by accomplishing one goal or task at a time with hyper focus and complete confidence.

This is how it works for my Syphus workout to! It’s really simple. Take time each day to sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and imagine in vivid detail what you want to accomplish with your workout.

For me it can range from mastering each circuit in particular increments of time to keeping the flow of tasks without stopping. Form first, a specific boulder number, and doing any kind of plate pushes end to end fast are others I pay particular interest in visualizing. I even visualize my name at the top of the board! 

Obsessed? Crazy? Maybe… but its worth a shot if you want to take your Syphus workout to the next level!

Visualization takes time and practice.

In order for this concept to go work you have to focus and feel as if the outcome you want is already yours!

Once you get the hang of it you can easily do it each day no matter what your workout and health goals are.

Just remember this simple phrase…

THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS.  Take the time to think about what you DO want not what you DON’T!

Use this easy trick to bust through ANY fitness plateaus your stuck in!

Be Well!
