Publisher's Summary

This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to reach your goals and overcome your challenges inside the gym and out.
Excellence is one of those words we use too lightly. Almost nothing is perfect. We look at something we like (perhaps a great work of art), and call it excellence. A pitcher throws a perfect game if no one gets on base, but is that truly excellence? Is there such a thing as the perfect wine to go with a meal? Or a perfect pair of shoes to go with an outfit? To me, the answer is no to all of these. Although individuals work to reach perfection, there is no perfection here.
That said, we should still try to attain excellence. We should do what we can to perfect ourselves in body, mind, and spirit. Also do what we can to chase after freedom and justice, even if we know that both are flawed. However, in our pursuit of excellence, we can become better. As we pursue perfect justice (and sometimes we fail), we come closer and closer to excellence. And in the end, we manage to catch excellence in justice.
Here is a preview of what you'll learn....

Mental preparation before and during workouts
Muscle building
Muscle building rules
Effective ways to handle criticism
How to achieve a balance in your life

Much, much more!

What a great book for mental preparation!

I love this guide on how to prepare mentality for working out. A lot of people need to realize that going to the gym and following a proper diet regimen is all mental. If you can get over the mental bridge you can do anything.
