Thinking about Intensity and focus during exercise, maybe we should get a quote from a master.

You should, and I want you to, regard all your bodily activities and exercises as a pleasure.
You should look forward to them as a joy to perform. The results will then be much more satisfactory
and certain. Hold in the mindís eye AT ALL TIMES the Ideal of Physical Perfection.
Think of yourself as possessing a Perfect Body. Realize each time you are exercising you are
arriving at still greater perfection.
Regard each dayís exercise as a goal in itself. Follow my instructions faithfully EVERY day, and
as you string these healthy days together you will have woven a healthy and happy life.
Remember step by step and the thing is done!
In all your bodily activities you are invited to put CONSCIOUS CONCENTRATED EFFORT
INTO EACH MOVEMENT. Perform all your exercises with a WILL. THINK Strength into the
parts involved. THINK Power. THINK the muscles are growing larger, stronger, more beautiful,
while you are exercising. Put pep and punch, vigor, vim and snap into every movement! Put life
into your exercises! Donít ever perform them in a halfhearted manner. Avoid a lazy attitude.
Refrain from dreaming of other things while exercising.
Do not dread them as something to be shunned or skipped through as quickly as possible.
MAKE UP YOUR MIND NOW YOU ARE GOING TO PUT YOUR WHOLE HEART AND
SOUL INTO EACH DIRECTED EXERCISE, AS GIVEN IN EVERY LESSON. THE
DESIRED RESULTS WILL BE YOURS.
