Do you get hung up on doing things the same old way, even though they haven’t been working for you? I think that many people can feel the pressure of trying to move forward with positive stride and make good progress every day, but get stuck in the same old rut that they have for years and have difficulty moving forward.
Today’s post will be about bodybuilding motivation and how to keep progressing forward everyday. What do you do to keep yourself motivated to consistently get your workouts in everyday?
If you have been following a path to keep yourself motivated to workout but haven’t been successful, stick around to the end of this post for some ideas that will keep you motivated and pumping out those workouts with energy to spare.
Especially in the days ahead where things seem to be uncertain and you are wondering if you are going to continue with your weekly training and workouts and fulfilling your goals. The basis of this article is that no matter what stands in your way, you need to keep progressing forward every day.
Everyday pressures can be very disrupting when it comes to accomplishing our goals or the things that matter most to us. Especially the way that things have been going lately with viruses affecting people’s health and even lives and all the violence that has been affecting people at all new heights.
Our daily activities and routines are affected, our ability to shop for the healthy food that we need and even being able to get in a decent workout at the gym of our choice. I may be wrong and let’s hope that I am, but I don’t know that there will ever be a state of normalcy and that the pandemic will ever be over completely.
I think that we will have to come to the realization that we will have to adapt to the situation the best we can and if it involves working out at home, or maybe even setting up our own home gym so that we can maintain a consistency with our physical fitness training and daily health regimen, then so be it.
I am not trying to cause alarm in anyone, or do I know the outcome of things to come, but however things turn out, I just want people to be mentally prepared and to know that their health and goals don’t need to be completely in the hands of the direction that the world is heading.
The pressures that we are undergoing are very real and there is no way to completely get around them, but our health is important, if we don’t have our health, what do we have?
You can be rich, have a beautiful home and a luxurious car, but if you don’t have your health, how are you going to enjoy anything else?
Do you get stuck in the same rut?
Another thing that can keep us from consistently moving forward on a daily and weekly basis is getting stuck in the same old rut day in and day out. Does this sound familiar? Is getting stuck in a rut something that you have been battling with far too long and are trying to find a way to break through it?
If this is something that you have become far too familiar with, do realize that you are not alone on this one. This is something that has been a dream breaker on a grand scale.
Getting stuck in a rut can be that we have so many other things going on in a day that we simply don’t have the time or energy to get our workout in. It can be that we expect to see results faster than what we have actually been accomplishing.
There are many things that can get us off route from accomplishing our training and goals, but it all depends on how far we allow these dream breakers to take us, are we going to allow them to take us off course on a regular basis?
Or are you going to take control of the matter by realizing that these little deturants are a part of daily life and even those that have achieved much in their lifetime have had numerous deturants battling for their attention trying to pull them off course.
It is when these little deturants pop up throughout the day, every week, that we need to stop these dream breakers in their tracks and do our best to prevent ourselves from getting of track in the first place. In order to do this, it is then that we will realize a definite need for motivation.
Why we need motivation
Why in the world would we need motivation in order to accomplish our goals through physical fitness training and diet? Isn’t motivation only necessary for the weak-minded?
Actually this is how the weak-minded have become strong-minded, and that is through continually keeping themselves motivated towards achieving their vision in mind.
Do you have a vision in your mind of where you want to be or what you would like to achieve in a specified period? Do you have a motive behind that vision? What will it take to motivate you to accomplishing that vision?
If you have a vision and you have the motivation to pull through and make this vision a reality, would you call that weak-minded?
I would have to say that if you have no vision, and if you have no motive pulling you forward, you are more than likely weak-minded and need some form of motivation to give you some drive.
How to keep yourself motivated
The best way to keep yourself motivated is through setting goals. Setting goals is not merely saying that you want to add 10 pounds of muscle to your frame, or adding an inch to your arms.
It is not simply that you want to lose 10 pounds of weight or get into better shape. Setting goals involves a little more work than simply stating what you want to do in the long term, those are all good ideas for long-term goals, but exactly how do you plan on reaching that destination?
In order to reach that destination, you will need to develop several smaller, bite-sized goals in order to achieve the larger ones. When you develop some achievable goals that can be accomplished for your days, weeks, and months ahead, this in the long run will not only be mapping out exactly what you want to achieve and where you plan on going with your training, but it will also help to give you the motivation along the way to keep going with your journey.
Once you have determined exactly what it is that you want to achieve with your training on a daily, weekly and monthly goal planner, and you have found the motivation to pursue your dreams through goal planning and not let them lay dormant somewhere never realizing the light of day, you will be on your way moving forward to seeing better results and a better future for your health, weight training and physical fitness goals.
Exactly how far you want to go with achieving your goals basically comes down to you and your mindset and exactly what you are willing to sacrifice along the way in order to see your results. Sacrifice doesn’t necessarily sound like a very inviting word, but many people have to make sacrifices in order to realize their dreams and accomplish the things that they have always desired doing.
If your dream is to build muscle, it will therefore be necessary to make sure that you make it to the gym everyday and get those pulse-pounding workouts in and not miss them, especially you will not want to make it a habit of missing your workouts.
On days that you spend all day at work, then you find that your friends or family want to spend all night sitting up at the bar, sometimes it can be difficult saying no to things from people that we care about, but if your number one goal is to achieve your fitness results, you will need to explain to them that there are specific sacrifices that you have to make in order to achieve your goals, or maybe if they want to be true friends, they will allow you the time to get a good workout in and shower before heading out to party or just hang out.
I think that the majority of us have short-term goals and long-term goals that we would like to achieve, and with everything that is going on in your daily life, whether it be work or school or even taking care of your family, we can tend to have a difficult time making enough time in our days to achieve the things that are important to us, but if you want to achieve your goals, you will need to spend some time, setting enough time to the side for your personal training, and family or friends will have to understand your wishes.
Along with a consistent program of training, it is also necessary to take in the appropriate nutrition that you need to fulfill your goals, and another part of that necessary nutrition may be supplementation. You can click on the link below to check further into supplementation products.
