5 Tips To Get Focused While Training

Life can be busy and full of distractions that are sometimes unavoidable. Some distractions, however, are ones that we personally create.

There’s a very good chance that if you spend a lot of time multitasking, you’re not getting the best out of your mind or your body. You may have mastered the art of doing several things at once, but it’s impossible to give multiple tasks a 100% focused effort. Though you may be checking many things off your to-do list each day, you could actually be accomplishing very little.

Good clothing

Always wear clothing that fits you well and makes you feel good.

Loose straps, pants that rub in the wrong place, or shoes that don’t fit well are all common causes of people slacking off in the gym.

Poor-fitting clothing can also pose a safety risk, especially if it makes you alter your form while performing an exercise.

No phone

Put your phone in a locker or leave it in your car. Being detached from your mobile device for 30-60 minutes may seem like torture, but it will help you stay focused on your workout. We like to assume that life will come to a halt if we’re not available 24/7.

A watch that beeps

Many people start watching the clock as they begin to feel tired during a workout. Clock watching may not sound like a distraction, but looking down at your watch too often can negatively affect your exercise form and prevent you from exerting full-out effort. If you set a watch that beeps at the correct interval, it will help you to get the most out of your session.

No fiddling

Stop fiddling with your playlist looking for the perfect song. The number of times I’ve found myself stopping on a run because I didn’t like the song that was playing is countless. Every time you get sidetracked, your intensity level drops and so does your heart rate.

Limit the chatting

Exercise time is a great time to bond with friends, make new friends, and catch up on a little gossip—as long as you don’t let your idle chatter get in the way of your fitness routine. Save the chatting for your rest times or for when your training session is over.
