Frank “The Crank” Camacho, while he trains diligently for the coveted victory against Beneil Dariush in their UFC bout to take place in Singapore Indoor Stadium on October 26, 2019, always has a moment to spare for his fans and fellow athletes.
In his new video journal, “CRANK Pro Tip: Journaling”, Camacho, hard at work in Team Oyama’s high-end professional gym and training arena, took a few precious minutes to share his experience and advice as a bona-fide UFC Athlete.
“After your scrimmage, after your sparring, or after your training, it’s always good to journal,” Frank explains, as the din of training surrounds him, “I get on my phone, I leave voice messages. I kinda just talk about my day, training, sparring.”
The sheer physicality of a professional UFC athlete requires huge amounts of discipline, and motivation. Journaling allows Frank Camacho, and many other athletes, to never lose sight of what motivates them: their values, their growth, and their end goal. Routines and consistency are much more powerful incentives than people may initially think!
“Journaling is a huge part of your development [as an athlete],” Frank explains, “It’s just so cool to be able to go back to all my previous fight camps, read what I was feeling; it motivates me to push hard and continue to do what I do.”
In the moments of training, sparring, and sheer athleticism, at the epicenter of that intensity, emotions and motivations are at their peak. Frank “The Crank” Camacho seizes the opportunity to articulate these feelings when they’re still raw and powerful, and they provide crucial motivation for him to continue to be the warrior.
Consider taking this CRANK PRO TIP to hear, and be the warrior.
