Topics such as meditation and positive self talk are explored, but the work is far from flighty or new age. They are real world tools for best maximizing your performance whether you are a weekend warrior or a competitive athlete.

With each stride; each repetition,
With each run into the wind and rain,
Each set to fatigue that seems unwinnable,
with each strange look from comfortable passengers in a car,
I continue to fight.
Each rep, each stretch, each gate
means one step closer.
Each stride and pull
makes my enemies shrink in fear
and my allies feel more secure.
This isn't lifting, working out, or jogging.
This is a battle.
No, this is war.
And I forgot to bring my white flag.

Fun Book

Found this book totally fun, somewhat thought provoking and with some excellent points.
If you like to workout and think you will probably enjoy this book. If you have an aversion to one or the other, maybe you better read it, whether you enjoy it or not. My life has been enriched by thinking, workout and reading. I suggest all three to everyone.
There were some things in this book, with which I didn't agree. The author is welcome to his opinion. I just don't share it. He finds the fact that at times he is better treated when he wears his police uniform, annoying. I think it is good. Police officers deserve our respect.
The attitudinal stuff, was where he was best.
So read the book and enjoy it.

The lessons in this book can be used in all aspects of your life, not just in the gym. I thank the author for breathing new life into my workouts and giving me a new perspective on my mental attitude in and out of the gym.
