I’m trying to do more things that make me uncomfortable, so here we are 🤷🏼♀️
For starters, I used to be TERRIFIED of the weight room. Seriously. I would never do squats or hip thrusts because I had no idea how use the equipment or have proper form. It took a lot of time to build up the courage and just go for it, but I couldn’t be happier that I did.
Everyone starts somewhere, and if you want to improve you have to at least START. Up until recently I hadn’t even done barbell hip thrusts because I was intimidated by the set up. And up until this workout, I’d never filmed myself because I thought it would be embarrassing. -
The truth is, no one in the gym really cares or even pays attention to what you’re doing! For me, not doing barbell hip thrusts because I felt intimidated was only holding me back from something I was already capable of. Not filming my workouts from fear of looking silly was only keeping me from seeing the areas I need to work on. Staying comfortable was just keeping me from growth, and what good is that?
I conquered the intimidation of the hip thrust set up and went on to hit a PR and now I’m working on hitting a new PR this month.
I conquered my fear of filming my workouts and now I’m better able to see the areas I can fix, thus making my workouts more beneficial.
And now I’m conquering that little part of me that says I shouldn’t post this because I’m not an expert and my lifts aren’t perfect. But hey, they don’t need to be! I’m imperfect. But I’m getting out of my comfort zone and I’m growing and that’s a pretty incredible thing 😊
For anyone that’s scared of trying something new, I challenge you to just go for it! It’s okay if you fail. Failing isn’t a bad thing, it’s just a learning opportunity AND the good thing is you can always keep trying. Before you know it, you’ll have conquered something you never thought you could do 💕
