Extra tips to help boost your mental toughness
Learning to push your body that hard requires some serious motivation and dedication, plus of course a next-level pain threshold. So where does all that motivation go on an average training day? Well, brace yourself for a mad schedule.
“I wake up, I go to practice for about two, two-and-a half hours, maybe three. Then I’ll go to the gym and I’ll get a lift in or I’ll do some extra conditioning and then I rest up, fuel up, and I’ll probably have another workout later that evening,” Clark said.
So that’s at least one technical and one strength and/or conditioning training in the same day, alongside all his other commitments. This might seem like a mad schedule, but it’s what Clark feels he needs to do to make it at the top in both life and sport.
If you’re feeling lazy, you’re not the only one, but the good news is you can take a lesson from both Clark and his wrestling coach. So next time your training session is in doubt, or you don’t want to haul your lazy ass to the gym, just remember what Clark would say: No excuses.
