Using Anger in Your Workouts

How to use that ultimate fat-burner, anger:

Convert anger to conviction. “Anger is the feeling; aggression is the behavior,” Pfeiffer notes. “It’s possible to feel angry and do something that’s constructive or creative, not destructive.” Much of the time, anger is based on a sense that other people have violated your rights or needs. Say the team captain has said something demeaning to you. Rather than attacking him physically or calling him names, ask yourself why the statement made you angry. Then identify the principle you feel is being violated – in this case, that you should be treated with respect – and put your conviction into words. “Anger makes you wild,” Goulston notes. “Conviction makes you strong.”
