The Power of Positive Affirmations

If you want to significantly improve your performance on workouts and your recovery from workouts, then tell yourself positive affirmations: positive statements that affirm your inner strength and abilities.

When possible, say the affirmations aloud, repeatedly, intensely, with conviction and authenticity.

Here are my favorite affirmations:

  • “EASY DAY.”

  • “I will CRUSH this workout.”

  • “I will recover from this workout and come back even stronger [or fitter].”

  • “This workout may tear me down. But I will recover. I will be reborn. I will super-compensate.”

  • “I keep getting stronger and stronger, physically and mentally.”


  • “INVICTUS.” [meaning ‘unconquered’ or ‘unconquerable’]


  • “Every day, I keep improving, progressing, and growing. I just keep getting better and better.”

By all means, use these affirmations to maximize your performance and recovery. But please do not use them to cultivate a huge, monstrous ego. Do not get arrogant or cocky. Stay humble. You can always improve, progress, and grow.
