Today I am finishing up with the other techniques and tips for SMASHING the governor of the effects of LACTIC ACID on your performance, which are not a drug, supplements or caffeine:
MOTIVATE YOUR MUSCLES!
Find ANYTHING that will MOTIVATE your MUSCLES! Could be bragging rights, setting a new record, not wanting to let others down, etc.
WRITE OUT MOTIVATION SLOGANS!
It could be Nike’s famous JUST DO IT, CRUSH IT, or my new favorite NO BARRIERS, NO LIMITS! It only has to be POSITIVE and BRIEF!
USE THE MOTIVATORS!
This refers to your family, friends, and just pumped up strangers like those along the route of the grueling Rio Olympics triathlon and bike rides! Then go out and VISUALIZE and HEAR the MOTIVATORS when they are NOT present, which is the most important time!
As they said in the Men’s Monthly article and I can’t improve upon:
ICE YOUR QUIT BUTTON!
Do like the elite athletes like Armstrong, Bolt, Jordan, Curry, etc. do – NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE UP! Also use ICEE drinks, COLD headbands and have your family and friends douse you with ICE CUBE WATER!
Well now you know that the way to overcome LACTIC ACID effect is really between your ears!
