Motivation

Recommended Posts

Howdy all.

 

How's everyones motivation level at the gym?

 

Slack? Right into it? Can't wait to get back to it to get that killer six pack for summer?

 

What's helping you keep on track?

 

 

I'm back into the full swing again after 6 weeks away travelling. Back down to 13 percent body fat and still lifting strong. Motivation being my new car coming this week and.recently being single :)

 

 

Post naow!

motivation seems to have dropped off for me lately to make matters worse i've just come down with a cold so not a good combination.

The first 3 months on the PPP i didn't miss a session now it seems to be more of a chore, ah well ill try and use summer coming up as a motivation

to get where I want just gotta shake this cold off. Oh yeah and old photos keep me motivated, never want to go back to that

Sickness is a pain in the ass. I always found eating a bit more and having more vitamins and minerals helps you to get over a cold.

 

if your getting bored at the gym, maybe try to change your programme; keep your body guessing. Maybe try a new product?

Get a couple of mates to train with you and lift your spirits, being newly single after she broke it off should spur you on to train harder and eventually get back out into the dating game and being lean ripped full of muscle will help you out also.

 

Been through the same in the past and the best thing you can do is show her that your ok and getting on with life. She will most likely regret it after she sees what your up to.

Haha. No lie. Tough breakup, long coming though. I walked away

For good reason. as said below, you train harder knowing your back in the game... got to look your best!

I do hope your right none the less.. train harder, get bigger, get on with life and hope she gets shitty haha

 

If you don't have mates to train with, chat with the regulars at the gm. Or alternatively, crank the music and double shot black powder and rip it up..

In no particulair order but my main motorvation is to look healthy and ripped.

 

My second motorvation is i was getting really sick of being pushed around my whole life, by that i mean i was always an easy target at clubs for douche' and i just seem to attract trouble from alpha's. Just want to be ready when the going gets tough i can bring out the hulk in me. HULK SMASH!!!

 

3rd motorvation is when like on the weekend walking back from the park with my shirt off an getting honked at by two different cars with some random girls, and they were hot too, makes my day. But i'm not even that buff at all. Must have been the reef oil lol.

 

I have noticed also in the workplace, my seniors and boss' seem to like the fact they have an employee who shows physical discipline (sp).

 

p.s. when i broke up with my ex i lost all motorvation for ages to get the gym, especially by myself, luckily i found a great gym partner and together we have kicked many goals together. Oddly im at the stage where with or without him i go regardless and couldnt care if hes there or not.

 

All in all lifes gonna throw you some curve balls, so at least always have your health and look your best :thumb:

No motivation here, just like doing it i suppose.

 

Then again, it's painful coming home from a tiring day at work, then having to bust your ass for the next 1 1/2 - 2 hours, if anything, thinking about it at work de-motivates me lol.

motivation is coming from trying a new cut diet after bulking up to 81kg - sitting at 77 at the moment, looking lean but want to get shredded lean and then up cal's again.

 

motivation also coming from learing through others experience's and adapting my own program as well as helpin other people

I've always struggled with motivation.. It's a killer for me.

Always get into it for 3-4 months and then it dies out.

 

Used to train at a gym but didn't have the motivation to get off my arse to head over there

Built a home gym which is more convenient but lack training buddies and help with technique for new lifts.

 

I know it's my own laziness that's killing it for me and I'm trying to pace myself this time instead of burning out too quick and hopefully getting a better physique for summer.

the gym is an outlet for me... i love going there .. setting goals and regardless of whatever is going on in my life at the time... when im there i think of nothing else besides getting the weight that i have challenged myself to. Its therapudic... everything escapes... all i care about is hitting it as hard and intensly as i possibly can with what ive got... theres nothing like plugging into your favorite playlist and zoning in. i work a lot of hours so there really isnt much time for anything else in the day... so it makes me feel better that i have accomplished something for "myself" in the day other than "just work..."

Seriously my motivation comes from pure rage, remembering all the shit times in life that happens. Past girl friends & i do it for the future women. Just a release of frustration with every day life. At a level where if i stopped, i'll hate myself for not working out. Then again it silences all your thoughts as your pushing that pain threshold, i guess thats why i do it. Having a natural high.

 

Practically like church every sunday, except church is 5 days a week.

It is as satisfying to me as cumming is. You know -- as having sex with a woman and cumming. So can you believe how much I am in heaven? I am, like, getting the feeling of cumming in the gym, I'm getting the feeling of cumming at home, I'm getting the feeling of cumming backstage when I pump up. When I pose out in front of five thousand people, I get the same feeling, so I am cumming day and night.

Why?

 

I don't have a training partner. I also don't need someone there to keep me motivated. It's only when you're lifting heavy when a spotter can come in handy, but I still manage. You soon get to know the regulars in the gym providing that you're regular yourself.

 

There are heaps of guys that seem to do more socialising in the gym than actual weights... and I don't need nor do I want that kind of distraction. It detracts me from the actual reason why I go there in the first place. I suits me to be a bit of a loner in the gym!

partly the fact that we can motivate each other to go... cause i know myself and i won't go that much...

Genesis Noarlunga is good.

 

Been there since May. Put on 8 kilo's, now up to a whopping 70kg hahahaha

 

There are a few guys there who seem friendly enough to chat to, I don't really speak to anyone, just do what I need to and leave.
