Is "mind over matter" really possible during a long and/or hard workout? Pushing your body to its maximum threshold requires more than cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength. Oftentimes, your mind sends signals to your body that it's time to stop your workout long before your body is actually physically depleted. However, it IS possible to recalibrate your brain and take your training efforts to the next level... You just have to dig deep...and KEEP GOING!!!
