When you're preparing to take your ride off road it's important to plan accordingly. Going from the paved road to an unpredictable trail requires some technical tweets for the rider and equipment. That's where this list comes in, it's your guide to gearing up for the challenges encountered by every mountain biker.

Must Haves

1. Bike - Before you can think about tearing up a single track you'll need a properly fitted, well maintained mountain bike. When it comes to specifications there are limitless options. From the size of the wheels to the construction of the frame and everything in between - full suspension or front suspension, disc brakes or V-brakes - the bike can be customized to suit any rider or terrain. 2. Helmet - Protective headgear needs to be a non-negotiable. So, if you're purchasing a bike be sure to buy a helmet. Then when you ride, think of the helmet as an extension of the bike; don't leave home without it. 3. Repair Tool - Off road riding is likely to result in some type of mechanical trouble. At the very least, you can expect a flat tire from time to time. That's why you need to have a basic repair kit. Pack a simple saddle bag with a multi-tool, tire levers, a patch kit, mini-pump, CO2, and a spare tube.

Style in the Saddle

4. MTB Shorts - combining a paddled liner with a baggy outer layer mountain bike shorts will prevent chaffing and stand up to the ruggedness of the outdoors. 5. Wicking Shirt - Stay cool and dry while you're tearing up the trail. A technical shirt that is well ventilated will make your ride more enjoyable. There are a variety of options for different elements and temperatures so be sure to choose your attire based on the forecast and season. 6. Cycling shoes - clipless pedals and cleated shoes make for a more efficient and comfortable ride. Getting into and out of the locking pedals will take some getting used to, but will be worth the effort. Be sure that your shoes and cleats match your pedals.

Nice to have

7. Hydration pack - combining a backpack with an insulated water bladder makes sipping while you ride simple. Sure you could use a water bottle and cage, but there's a good chance that mud and dirt will be kicking up all over your frame and bottle. The hydration pack is much more convenient and holds more water making it a better option by far. 8. Sunglasses - Yes, sunglasses can be used to shade your sight, but eyewear can also keep mud and other debris out your eyes. Look for glasses with interchangeable lenses that can be swapped out based on the conditions of the ride. 9. Gloves - protect your hands from the damaging off road elements with a pair of cycling gloves. Full finger gloves will serve as an added layer of protection while improving your grip and absorbing the shock produced by the trail. 10. First aid kit - This item is pretty self-explanatory. Pack the basics like band aids, tape, scissors, and alcohol swabs that can be used to tend to abrasions.

Ready for anything

With all of the essentials on hand you're ready to ride. Before you head out the door perform a performance test on your bike to ensure proper function. Then make some last minute additions to your repair kit or hydration pack. A map or GPS will help with navigation and keep you from getting stranded. Similarly, snag some extra cash and stow your cell phone because you never know when you might need them.

Aero Tech Designs - 2016 Christmas Sweater - Full Zip Cycling Jersey

Fun and Festive for the Holidays! - Santa's Night Ride

Our holiday elves have been busy at the factory designing and creating this year’s Aero Tech Designs Christmas cycling jersey! This 2016 Christmas cycling jersey will make a great addition to your “Ugly Sweater”-themed jersey collection. With this performance enhanced jersey, you will not only ride longer and feel stronger; you’ll be the shining star at the holiday parties.

This peloton long sleeve cycling jersey is made with 100% Polyester MicroFleece, keeping you warm while wicking away moisture. Perfect for those chilly bike rides over the river and through the woods to Grandma’s house!  The back panel is lengthened to keep out the blustery winter winds around the backside and midriff. Raglan sleeves fit snug around the shoulders without impairing mobility. The sleeve cuffs stretch to conform to your wrist and fit perfectly into a pair of cycling gloves. The jersey has a full-length zipper with a large Aero Tech Designs pull tab that is easy to grab while wearing gloves. A reflective tab in the rear adds visibility for those long winter nights. Three generously-sized rear pockets are designed for easy access and reinforced for long life. Plenty of room for Santa’s cookies, some cider, warm woolen mittens and brown paper packages tied up with string. Just about all of your favorite cycling things!

This colorful print is made to look like a knitted sweater that calls to mind “The Night Before Christmas”, with a cycling twist! It shows a red house with a snow-covered rooftop decorated with bright Christmas lights and a snowman keeping watch for jolly, old St. Nick. Above in the night sky rides Santa Claus in his sleigh. But it’s not being pulled by tiny reindeer. This time, he’s using pedal power! Four bikes propel him past the full moon, the one in front guiding the way with a bright red nose. Do you recall his name?

Every jersey is handcrafted and magically infused with Christmas spirit at our factory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Proudly made in the USA!

5 Tips for Cycling in the Autumn

Now that the days are getting shorter and the mercury is dropping we need to keep an eye on the forecast and plan ahead to stay warm and safe this autumn. Cycling through the seasons is fun and will keep you fit and happy throughout the colder months of the year. Nothing ruins a ride faster than freezing wet feet and cold hands that never come back to temperature. Our 5 tips will help you stay warm and have your best fall cycling adventure yet!

1.)Prepare your bike: The challenges for a bicycle during the fall and winter months are more of the preventative kind. The main goals are to minimize flats, keep the shifting smooth, and keep the rider dry. Start the season off right with installing fenders and bigger tires with a puncture protection system as soon as the weather changes. In the fall, we have times of rain, sun, or snow, and we recommend having a tire that will perform great in all those conditions while helping keep your flat count to a minimum. The fenders will keep your backside dry when you hit unavoidable puddles. As for the chain and gears, keep your bike clean and happy. You can see our tips here on how to clean and lube properly. A clean bike means less broken parts, less chain oil on your pants and more time for fun.

2.)Know the forecast and pack accordingly: We know it sounds trivial and somewhat daft, but yes, the forecast will create your outfit for the ride. Look at the morning and the afternoon temperatures and conditions. If you are a commuter then prepare accordingly as mornings can be freezing but afternoons maybe toasty and warm. During fall on the east coast the weather can change in a drop of a hat. If the forecast calls for rain around your ride time, pack a small rain jacket. This O2 Rain Shield is cost effective and will get you out of a pinch for sure. Opting for some thicker gloves maybe a good option as well. We recommend wearing toe covers under your shoes, and packing booties if the rain is coming. Wind breakers and vests are a great way to stay warm on descents and cold areas while minimizing added bulk to your jersey or bag. The Endura Pak-a-Jak is great for such days

3.) Be visible: The daylight is getting shorter and shorter and a ride a 5:00pm can mean coming home in the dusk and dark, so prepare with the right gear. Wear high-visual gear in the fall and winter months, keep drivers and others aware of your position on the road. A blinking light for the front and rear of the bike is a way to add protection. The Cat-Eye small ribbon lights and the Fiks Reflective wheel and frame for a double dose of reflectivity are great to use!

4.)Keep those digits toasty: Nothing is worse on a ride then cold hands or toes. The happier your extremities the happier the whole body and mind will be. Get yourself a really good, dependable set of water proof or wind proof gloves to start the season off. Pack for the worst and keep some chemical hand warmers in your saddle bag for your toes and hands. The insulation from the gloves and booties will keep the heat trapped inside and you'll be warm for hours to come. We have a wide selection of full finger gloves.

5.)Food and hydration: With all this prep and planning it's easy to forget the simple things: eating and drinking. Gels and protein bars can get cold, tough and even frozen if the weather is bad enough. Pack comfort foods that not only add nutrients to the body but can also add the kick needed to help you finish your ride strong. Try Apple Cinnamon Hot from Scratch Labs for a holiday taste on your ride or our favorite: Nutella and almond butter on a toasted English muffin wrapped in foil. Whatever you like make sure to eat it because your body needs the fuel when it's working hard keeping you warm and crank up those hills.

Now that the days are getting shorter and the mercury is dropping we need to keep an eye on the forecast and plan ahead to stay warm and safe this autumn. Cycling through the seasons is fun and will keep you fit and happy throughout the colder months of the year. Nothing ruins a ride faster than freezing wet feet and cold hands that never come back to temperature. Our 5 tips will help you stay warm and have your best fall cycling adventure yet!

1.)Prepare your bike: The challenges for a bicycle during the fall and winter months are more of the preventative kind. The main goals are to minimize flats, keep the shifting smooth, and keep the rider dry. Start the season off right with installing fenders and bigger tires with a puncture protection system as soon as the weather changes. In the fall, we have times of rain, sun, or snow, and we recommend having a tire that will perform great in all those conditions while helping keep your flat count to a minimum. The fenders will keep your backside dry when you hit unavoidable puddles. As for the chain and gears, keep your bike clean and happy. You can see our tips here on how to clean and lube properly. A clean bike means less broken parts, less chain oil on your pants and more time for fun.

2.)Know the forecast and pack accordingly: We know it sounds trivial and somewhat daft, but yes, the forecast will create your outfit for the ride. Look at the morning and the afternoon temperatures and conditions. If you are a commuter then prepare accordingly as mornings can be freezing but afternoons maybe toasty and warm. During fall on the east coast the weather can change in a drop of a hat. If the forecast calls for rain around your ride time, pack a small rain jacket. This O2 Rain Shield is cost effective and will get you out of a pinch for sure. Opting for some thicker gloves maybe a good option as well. We recommend wearing toe covers under your shoes, and packing booties if the rain is coming. Wind breakers and vests are a great way to stay warm on descents and cold areas while minimizing added bulk to your jersey or bag. The Endura Pak-a-Jak is great for such days

3.) Be visible: The daylight is getting shorter and shorter and a ride a 5:00pm can mean coming home in the dusk and dark, so prepare with the right gear. Wear high-visual gear in the fall and winter months, keep drivers and others aware of your position on the road. A blinking light for the front and rear of the bike is a way to add protection. The Cat-Eye small ribbon lights and the Fiks Reflective wheel and frame for a double dose of reflectivity are great to use!

4.)Keep those digits toasty: Nothing is worse on a ride then cold hands or toes. The happier your extremities the happier the whole body and mind will be.

Here are some tips and tricks from our winter time riding pros here at Aero Tech Designs. Hopefully you can get out this winter and have some fun on two wheels! 1.) Trainer or Rollers: These are the best way to keep the training in your comfort zone. With a trainer (sometimes called a turbo trainer) or rollers you are free to set up your favorite movie or cycling video. I personally like to watch cycling on the trainer, it helps to stoke the fire for the next season and also you can pick up great tips or form. Deciding between rollers or riding the trainer is a personal preference. Some riders prefer the read road feel of the rollers and mental engagement that it requires. Rollers can be harder to perform sprints or hard force efforts unless you have a unit that offers resistance or a fork stand. On the other hand, the turbo trainer requires little mental concentration but can lack the feel of riding a bicycle. The trainer allows you to zone out and get a good work out while watching a show or listen to music. Another benefit is the stability and resistance of most trainers. This stability is great for sprints and hard efforts. The rider can concentrate on the work out instead of staying on the rollers. 2.) Spin Class: We've all seen it; an instructor with a headset on barking orders at sweating, pain faced riders. Welcome to Spin Class. A spin class is the perfect way to keep your riding fitness through the winter and work some different muscle groups. The condensed format of a spin class makes it perfect for the person who wants to get a great workout in a small amount of time. Spin classes mimic the efforts of cycling and even offer the feeling of real world riding with SPD compatible pedals, so you can use your regular riding shoes. If you haven't tried a spin class I highly recommend it. Just come prepared with some water, a towel, and be ready to work out! 3.) Bundle up: It's not like we stay inside our houses all winter right? So why can't we just add some extra layers and get outside and ride? Right! Having the correct gear can turn your winter frown upside-down. Remember to layer properly and dress for the occasion; if you're hitting the road for a ride wear wind proof garments. Head winds on the road can be downright painful without ear and face protection. If you're in the woods you will want to be ready for slush and mud. Wearing waterproof shoe covers and gaiters are a great way to keep your feet warm and dry. Fleece can be better than wind proof gear in the woods because you're not encountering much head wind and you can over heat quickly on climbs and hike-a-bike sections. Always remember to carry chemical hand warmers just in case! 4.) Fat Bike: A Fat Bike is an excellent choice for enjoying the winter weather. Fat bikes, for those who are unfamiliar, are bicycles with 4-5 inch tires that are designed to be ridden in snow and sand. Fat bikes can be seen all over the trails, not just in the winter time, and that's what so great about riding one. Just take a few pedal strokes, and I guarantee you'll have a smile on your face. You'll be looking for the closest trails. Since fat bikes can tip the scales at 30 plus pounds be prepared for a work out. 5.) Move somewhere warmer: So, this an option too, but let's look closer into it.
*Average price of a stationary bike trainer $150.00 including magnetic resistance and riser block for front wheel.
*Average price for Spin Class at the local gym or YMCA $25.00 drop-in rate, free water included.
*Average price for winter cycling gear total package from Aero Tech Designs, about $500.00 covering you head to your toe covers.
*Average price of a Fat Bike at your Local Bike Shop $2,000.00. This would be a quality fat bike build for the long haul and many winters to come.
*Average price for a house Orlando Florida $179,900.00
I would personally look into some winter riding gear and a Fat Bike for maximum fun!

When the training wheels come off it’s time to cruise the neighborhood with pride.

7 Mistakes Beginner Cyclists Make

Learning to ride a two wheeler is a rite of passage for kids everywhere. When the training wheels come off it's time to cruise the neighborhood with pride. Then sometime between middle school and college, the bike gets swapped out for a car or friends with a four wheeled ride; your two wheels aren't so special anymore. But the bike always makes a comeback. Maybe you're in college and need to get around campus. Perhaps you're looking to get fit, go on an off-road adventure, or save some cash by commuting to work. It doesn't matter when or why you reclaim your cycling roots; whether you're riding for fitness or fun, on the road or on the trail. What matters is that you avoid making the mistakes of a newbie cyclist. That's why we created this list, to have you looking and riding like a pro in no time.

1.Forgetting the fit.

Sure, you can go to the store, buy a shirt off the rack, toss it on, and have nothing to worry about. But, the same can't be said for a new bike. They're not one-size-fits-all. Even though bikes come in sizes, that doesn't mean it will be a perfect fit. That's why you should arrange a professional fitting to make sure you'll be riding comfortably and efficiently.

2.Endangering your dome.

This one is simple; when you buy a bike, buy a helmet. Then, when you ride, wear your helmet. It will save your life. There's really no explanation need beyond that.

3.Wearing faulty footwear.

After a bike and helmet, cycling shoes should be your third purchase. If you're simply cruising to class or back and forth to work, then you could get by without them. But, if you plan on riding long distances or competitively clipless pedals are a must. They'll take little getting used to, but once you get the hang of things you'll be glad you made the switch.

4.Doubling up.

Bike, check! Helmet, check! Shoes, check! Nice work, you're looking like a real cyclist now. Well you were, until you wore underwear beneath your cycling shorts. Believe it or not you are supposed to go commando under your cycling bib, tights, or shorts. Underwear will cause irritation. Plus, your bike shorts are designed with padding and fabric that wick moisture and eliminate the need for undies.

5.Crashing hard.

No, we're not talking about wrecking your bike; although you could chalk that up to your beginner status. In this case crashing refers to bonking or hitting the wall that results from improperly fueling your body. If you're heading out for a long ride be sure to eat up before you head out. No, this isn't excuse to gorge yourself on junk food or allow yourself to overeat. Eat a balanced meal that will energize you, instead weighing you down. Then, be sure to pack some snacks for the ride. And, don't forget to take your water bottle on the ride.

6.Chancing it.

What happens if you get a flat, blow your chain, or get lost? Have you prepared your flat kit, chain tool, and mapped out your ride? If you answered no you are in for a rude awakening when the unexpected happens, and it will happen. Don't leave the house without having thought out your ride and prepared your repair kit. It's also a good idea to take some cash and your cell phone in case of an emergency.

7.Going for broke.

If you're a newbie cyclist that means you're not a professional; at least not yet. So remember that when you're setting out on a ride. Not every day can be a 100 mile day. As a matter of fact, if you really are a rookie rider, you shouldn't be thinking about riding that far. You have to start small and increase the lengths of your rides over time. Ride and then recover. Being realistic and working within your abilities will help you make progress overtime, while avoiding injury or burnout."|"Seven things to avoid as a beginner cyclist.

With the New Year approaching it's time to reflect on the past and plan for the future. We're able to evaluate all of the things we've done well and focus on the areas that still need some attention. This year, while you're planning out your resolutions, make room for a few changes that are guaranteed to make you a better cyclist.

Lose weight

Riding on a regular basis is a surefire way to trim down and improve your performance in the saddle. By making weight loss and cycling a priority you'll become more active. As a result your lifestyle is likely to be more active. Training will become part of your routine, making exercise more enjoyable.

Speed up

Ride in a group or find a riding partner who can push you to your limits. Seek out other cyclists who are more experienced than you. It doesn't hurt to have a cycling mentor. Doing so will help you ride out of your comfort zone in an attempt to keep pace. You'll pick up tips and tricks along the way. It's also a great way to socialize and stay motivated towards your cycling goals.

Be smart

Identify your training goals for the New Year. Will you prepare for a specific event, train for weight loss, or simply ride for fun? Once you decide what you hope to achieve you can create an action plan. If you plan to take your training more seriously, enlist the help of a coach who can help guide you along the way.

Brave the elements

If you skip out on a ride every time it rains you'll never make any progress. Commit to riding in the rain, pick up the appropriate rain gear, and stick to your routine regardless of the weather. Eliminate the excuses that have been keeping you from taking your fitness and cycling skills to the next level.

Ditch your car

Keep your car parked and ride your bike whenever it is possible. Try commuting to work, to the gym, or when you're running errands around town. Increasing the amount of time you spend in the saddle is a simple way to improve your cycling skills. Commuting is better for your wallet, the environment, and your health than driving everywhere.

Clean up. Make maintenance a priority

Perform regular checkups on your bike and gear. Take your ride to the repair shop. Upgrade old or faulty components. Be sure to wipe down and lube up as needed. Being proactive in the maintenance process will help ensure longevity of your bike and safety on your rides.

Live it up

It's time that you made a cycling bucket list. Is there a ride or race you always wanted to participate in? If not, you should start to think about it. If you have one on mind, make this year the year that it happens. Plan a cycling tour, take a bike-based vacation, ride across the country. It's time that you had that epic ride that you've always talked about. Round up your friends and take a ride that you can brag about, and revisit for years to come.

Plan your ride: If you plan, you can prevent poor performance and be a safer rider. If you know your route you can be prepared for any challenges along the way. There is also a safety factor involved. It's important to know any steep road grades you may encounter or where a road maybe closed. If a road is closed, plan an alternate route. So write it down, put it in the calendar, and map it out; we're going riding and nothing is going to stop us. 2. Check your equipment the night before: Are you going out early to ride? Best way to reduce mental stress before your ride is to have your gear ready. Check your tires, gear, frame and all the essentials to ensure that the only thing that will stop you on your ride are the traffic lights. 3. Nutritional timing: Obviously this doesn't have to be down to the minute but you want to get the most out of what you eat and when. For example, eating carbohydrates before a long day in the saddle can be a good thing. What's not good would be eating that big plate of spaghetti 30 minutes before the ride. Give yourself enough time to digest the food you've consumed. The same goes for calories out; eat on the bike roughly every 30-45 minutes to help keep the bonks at bay. 4. Track your ride: Going on a long bike ride can be a great experience and the time flies but sometimes so do the roads that you've enjoyed and the speed that you were going. In this technologically savvy world we live in we can track nearly every aspect of our day. Why not our rides? There are great free programs like Map My Ride, Strava, and Garmin Connect, that will allow you to keep track of all you rides and recreate them whenever you want. So you can enjoy the sights and leave the tracking to the professionals. 5.Roll with the punches: So you wanted to start your ride at 9:00am but you woke up late and the cat needs fed and the dog needs walked and your kit needs washed. We've all been there but the best thing you can do is take a deep breath and go with it. Riding for most of us is our time to exorcise the demons, to clear your head, to have fun. So don't stress, even if it means cutting some miles off the ride. Make sure you stay on track, get on the bike sometime in the day, and you will come back feeling lighter and happier. 6.Challenge yourself: Remember all that tracking we talked about? Well here is a great way to put it to some practical use. Did you ride that last segment in 10 minutes? Next time challenge yourself to ride it in 9 minutes 30 seconds. Anytime you get a chance to challenge yourself on a ride (within reason) take it. Because, even small challenges on rides daily can lead to big gains in the future! 7. Reward yourself: You deserve it! All that hard work of planning, riding and challenging...someone has earned an ice cream cone!

1. Plan your ride: If you plan, you can prevent poor performance and be a safer rider. If you know your route you can be prepared for any challenges along the way. There is also a safety factor involved. It's important to know any steep road grades you may encounter or where a road maybe closed. If a road is closed, plan an alternate route. So write it down, put it in the calendar, and map it out; we're going riding and nothing is going to stop us. 2. Check your equipment the night before: Are you going out early to ride? Best way to reduce mental stress before your ride is to have your gear ready. Check your tires, gear, frame and all the essentials to ensure that the only thing that will stop you on your ride are the traffic lights.

Tires Inflated Properly
Lights Working
Clothing Picked Out
Inspect and Lube Chain
Inspect Frame
Helmet
Sunglasses
Sunscreen
Chamois Butt'r

3. Nutritional timing: Obviously this doesn't have to be down to the minute but you want to get the most out of what you eat and when. For example, it's great to eat carbohydrates before a long day in the saddle. What's not good would be eating that big plate of spaghetti 30 minutes before the ride. Give yourself enough time to digest the food you consume. The same goes for calories out; eat on the bike roughly every 30-45 minutes to help keep the bonks at bay. 4. Track your ride: Going on a long bike ride can be a great experience but sometimes so do the roads that you've enjoyed and the speed that you were going. In this technologically savvy world we live in we can track nearly every aspect of our day. Why not our rides? There are great free programs like; Map My Ride, Strava, and Garmin Connect that will allow you to keep track of all you rides and recreate them whenever you want. So you can enjoy the sights and leave the tracking to the computers. 5. Roll with the punches: So you wanted to start your ride at 9:00am but you woke up late and the cat needs fed and the dog needs walked and your kit needs washed. We've all been there but the best thing you can do is take a deep breath and go with it. Riding for most of us is our time to clear your head and to have fun. So don't stress even if it means cutting some miles off the ride. Make sure you stay on track, get on the bike sometime in the day, and you will come back feeling lighter and happier. 6. Challenge yourself: Remember all that tracking we talked about? Well here is a great way to put it to some practical use. Did you ride that last segment in 10 minutes? Next time challenge yourself to ride it in 9 minutes 30 seconds. Anytime you get a chance to challenge yourself on a ride (within reason) take it. Because, even small challenges on rides daily can lead to big gains in the future! 7. Reward yourself: You deserve it! All that hard work of planning, riding and challenging...someone has earned an ice cream cone! Part of the joy of riding is the euphoria and fun of decompressing afterward. So take that detour past the gelato stand or coffee shop, grab a seat and enjoy a well-deserved pastry. Now start planning that next ride or event! You can find Aero Tech Designs at the Sea Gull Century, Apple Cider Century, and the Hilly Hundred this fall. Hope you see you there!

Learn how to train for competitions or even just for enjoyment. Get tips on how to stay healthy and active during workouts.

Let's be honest. Sometimes carving out the time to make it to the gym can seem like a workout in itself. After a long day at the office, you might be lacking the energy and motivation required to make it through your workout. You don't have hours to spend at the gym, but you want keep progressing towards your fitness goals. Consider using these easy to implement tips to ensure you are able to get the most out of every workout.

Bring your MP3 player. Customizing a playlist for your workout has been shown to improve performance. Researchers have found that people who listen to up-beat music get significantly more out of their stationary bike workouts. They pedaled faster, produced more power and their heart rate was elevated high than that of individuals who listened to slower music or those who did not list to music at all.

Find a workout buddy. Working out with a partner can help you stay motivated and make the entire gym experience more enjoyable. Having a partner will make you accountable to someone other than yourself, helping to keep you committed to your fitness goals.

Mix up your routine. Keep your muscles guessing by changing up your routine every 3 or 4 weeks. This way you will not become bored with and you will have new challenges to tackle. You can change the amount of weight you are lifting, the machines you are using, or mix up the exercises you perform.

Turn the television off! It's tempting to lose yourself in your favorite show during your cardio workout. However, one study found that women worked out about 5 percent harder when they weren't watching TV than when they were. Because you are thinking about your show and not your workout, it is easy to lose touch with how much effort you are putting into your workout.

Create competition. There is nothing like a little friendly competition to increase motivation. Instead of spending 30 minutes the treadmill, opt for a game of pick-up basketball. Or, consider competing in your own mini triathlon. Lift weights for 15 minutes, bike for 15 minutes, and then finish your workout with a 15 minute run.

Chart Your Progress. Use a fitness report card to keep track of these categories: Cardio, Muscle Conditioning, Flexibility and Attitude. Set goals for each workout and grade yourself A through F at least once a month. This report card will show what you have accomplished and where you need to make improvements.

Hydrate! Drink plenty of water throughout the day and on your way to the gym. If you're dehydrated going into a workout, you will not be able to work as hard while training. When you're dehydrated, you lack mental clarity, motivation and energy. Stay hydrated so you do not sabotage your workout.

If you think you can, you will. Often times, optimism and positive thinking can carry you through a tough workout. In one study, exercisers who thought positively were more likely to stay active than those whose minds often uttered those two words, I can't.
