Episode 34 of the Fit Mother Project Podcast is all about the muscle-building mindset and the inner game of shaping your body.

Whenever I think about this subject, I think of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie Pumping Iron.

Arnold has a quote in that movie that perfectly sums it all up: “It is the mind that creates the body. It's the mind that really makes you work out 4-5 hours a day.”

The good news is that you don’t have to work out for four or five hours per day to gain muscle!

But what Arnold says about the mind is what we really want to focus on. 

Because it's the mind that ultimately shapes our behaviors, drives our motivation, and gives us the structure for our training plan that enables us to succeed. 

In this episode, we lay out the 10 most effective mindsets and distinctions around mindset. 

If you want to get buff and toned, listen to this episode!

In this episode you’ll learn: 

  • Why ‘slow and steady’ is the key to muscle building.
  • The importance of nutrition and sleep.
  • The differences between weight loss and muscle building.
  • The importance of structure and how to build a plan that’s right for you.
  • How to track your gains.
  • And so much more!
