This will train your mind to never let your body rest and focus on your workout which improves timing, speed, accuracy and intensity.
2.Count Your Reps In Your Heads
Having small goals in your head will help your body achieve it. Setting a bar for yourself and trying to acheive takes a lot of mental focus.

3. Don’t Ever Sit Down
Sitting down is not what you should be doing if you want a great workout, when your standing this helps put your mind in a ‘need to do something’ mode.
