My arms are gonna hurt tomorrow. 200 push ups and 200 sit ups. You might think I'm crazy but to keep going whenI'd run out of steam I kept thinking "Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee". I don't know where it came from or why but saying it in my head made it a lot easier doing those pushups and sit ups. Anybody else have little mind tricks to keep them going during a test? What are they?:)
 
I think you found your Mantra :)

Congrats on your belt Promotion.
 
Congratulations Rachel !! :asian:

I have a belt test next Friday.

Unfortunatley, one of the things I don't like about the TKD style I study right now is that our belt tests seem like a joke compared to what I used to do in my Ju Jutsu tests. In my current test we basically only go over basic forms, kicks etc., kata and some self-defense. We don't really do any physical stuff.

Call me crazy but I used to like feeling like I was going to die but making it though a test by sheer will power. I'm getting lazy these days. :(

And hey, if "Bruce Lee" works for you than go ahead. I tend to just say "Keep breathing, keep breathing, keep breathing . . . "

Don't need to fight them. They are not worthy opponents. Anyhow I was talking about my bicep (thursday), and Chest workout (friday) that we went through. That is my partner showed up for a couple of days.:eek:
