Negative thought, and negative talk can make a good workout a terrible experience, and a workout with very little positive effect.
More and more research is pointing out the positive effect of training in a hot and humid environment; however, that positive effect can be minimized or even negated by a negative perception of the environment. We all know how the heat and humidity feels, so talking about the negative aspects of it only serves as a training deterrent and it can put the one talking as well their training partners in a mind set that inhibits development. Seemingly innocent comments such as: “Man it is so hot”, “I hate this heat”, “I wish we were training were it was cooler”, etc. can wreck the team’s attitude and make training that much harder.
Is it hot? HELL yes it’s hot!!!! This is the Greater Houston area and its July, what do ya expect???
