Here is an interesting tactic that I hijacked from Dutch’s blog-give it a try…

Take a look at the elite guys in any sport and you will notice that when they are at their peak performance they appear to be super relaxed. Their face is relaxed and their movement is fluid. They make the amazing things they do appear simple and effortlessly.if you think about it, tension starts in your face, travels to your shoulders, then your arms and hands. If you can’t see the tension in someones hands watch their shoulders or hands. Relax the face and the body will follow. Use the muscles you need and let the other ones chill. Making faces when you are training doesn’t make it any easier, in fact they probably make you feel like it is harder.
Think about it next time you are training. Take a big breath and relax your face. It will transfer to the rest of your body and you will perform better.”

There might be something to this remember when Dutch did the Chipper with Matt and I and everyone said it looked like he wasn’t even trying-this is why. When I asked him he said he was trying not to puke the whole time-it just wasn’t showing on his face.
