The One More Minute Secret



If you're ready to quit think to yourself "can i make it through just one more minute" and when that minutes up... think the same thing -- before you know it, you've done another ten, fifteen, or thirty minutes.
Even if you just get that one more minute in, it's one more towards your goal!

  • That is so true, keep on pushing. Thanks for sharing. - by AMBER461
  • I do this most of the time and it works. When the trainer asks me for 2 more, 5 more etc., I give him 3 more, 6 more and so on or, with abs crunches, when he says give me 50, I give him 60! He's a smashing young man and I'm a 62yr old woman who isn't going to let him think I'm wimping out! Let's hear it for the mature peops! - by CHEBBA

    Most of my exercise is done at the gym, and at the end of a Body Pump routine, the instructor will often say something like 'five more reps' or 'one more minute', and what seemed impossible becomes possible. - by VAINVT
