When it comes to exerting emotional energy during training some people thrive when they just let it all out. They holler during their heavy squats, grunt during their sled drives, while others tend to be reserved and suffer quietly.
It's fun to see people's reactions when they hit a PR. Some people scream with joy or clap their hands, or slam their bar or even bust out into a full blown jazz hands tap dance- they let the world know when they are excited. And others may hit a PR and remain just as quiet and composed as ever while those around them show their own excitement for them- usually surprised at the athlete's mellow reaction to their recent accomplishment.
Conversley, on bad days it's a similar scenario. Some are passionate in their external expression of dissapointment- tossing bars down, an F Bomb, a mope, an occasional leaving the gym to take a walk around the block. Some of us girls have joked about the fact that poor Kyle has had to endure so many of our crying episodes during tough workouts. And yet others seem to be able to just shake off the bad days, maintaining composure and positive attitude, and move on.
Do you consider yourself an emotional athlete? Do you feel like you externally express your emotions in regards to your training?
