When I started exercising as a young child, I was instructed to look at myself in the mirror and critique my form.  You get to learn how to properly position yourself and prevent injury by using proper form.

In one research, I have read that you get an 8% greater workout by thinking and doing the exercises in proper form.  Many people have a hard time looking at themselves in the mirror.  I believe they are so critical on what parts they don’t like about themselves that they cannot concentrate on the good strong parts about the body that was given to them.

My advice is to learn to love the mirror.  Get comfortable looking at who you see.  There are so many wonderful different parts of that person in the mirror.  Once you learn to love that, you may find a love to share to others.

“For the Spirit that God has given us does not make us timid, his Spirit fills us with power, love, and self-control.”

~ 2 Timothy 1
