When fighting or training heavily you can get a great rush from adrenaline. Learning to control that burst, and level it out over the length of your training while increasing your intensity can really drive your body. Some people feel nervous, as their body begins burning more energy and breathing rapidly, control your faster breathing, and feel the charge within you. Use that with a focused and disciplined mind and you can achieve amazing results.
