Going to the Gym – Motivation, Determination, Persistence

Motivation is a thing that everyone seems to be looking for nowadays. Everyone is different and the things that motivate me might not motivate you. It’s important to have something that drives you forward.

I usually get people coming to me with a certain goal whereas it’s to lose weight, tone up or build muscle there is an emotional drive behind them for example a man wants to get bigger to feel more confident, look good without a t-shirt, impress their crush etc everyone will have something that they’re exercising for. Now you need to dig deep and ask yourself why is it that you though about starting to exercise in the first place? Once you find your why you will have a reason to go and not miss a session.

If you want to achieve something really badly you will find a way to do it. The way I do it is if I set my mind to something I will do it regardless of the emotional state I’m in, if I was to go to the gym only when I felt like it I would never achieve anything. I believe it comes down to a decision that you want to achieve something and then sticking with it until you manifest it.

At the end of the day you are in control of the decision you make for example you’re coming home after work feeling tired now you got a choice you either drag your ass to the gym or sit down watch TV and snack on junk food. Sitting down and relaxing is an easier option that’s for sure but you got to ask yourself is that going to bring you any closer to your goal?

There will be times where you be tired or sad and want to talk yourself into not going to the gym, it’s essential that you fight off this voice and take action. This is where a spark of motivation comes in handy. There are several things that might get you hyped up and ready to smash it:

  • Plug your earphones, put on your favourite music and get ready
  • Listen to a motivational speech
  • Go on social media and look at people that have achieved what you want
  • Ring your training partner!
  • Set yourself a challenge that you will go x amount of times this week and schedule it onto your dairy
  • Put on your clothes and pack your bag

I’ve witnessed that people that usually lack motivation do so because they don’t really know what to do once they step into the gym so the whole process becomes a drag. If you’re one of those people that do the same routine over and over again in the gym I would consider hiring a personal trainer or asking one for a workout plan. Personal trainer will keep you accountable, make your workouts interesting, show you new exercises, correct your form and ensure you reach your goals much faster. This alone can make a huge difference to your mindset.

The first few weeks are certainly going to be the hardest, this is where you will have to battle with your mind a lot. Once you establish a routine and start seeing results it gets much easier. Commit to it and execute. You got this!

28-Day Simple Fat Burning & Toning Workout Programme for Men & Women

Working out is amazing, I want you to fall in love with it. Without a defined destination and a plan you might be lacking the motivation to go to the gym in the first place.

You probably tried before and didn’t quite manage to get the results you wanted or just simply don’t know where to start. The fitness world can become overwhelming therefore I’ve gone into great detail explaining everything that I believe you need to know.

This programme has taken me a lot longer than expected, It contains a short version of the detailed plan that you can take into the gym with you. The detailed version explains: how to perform and exercise, sets, repetitions, tips & tricks, rest times, breathing & photos of each exercise.

In these 28 days you will complete 12 workouts lasting about 1 hour and 30 minutes each. You can carry on with the same programme for another month if you wish, just make sure you’re applying progressive overload. That means you can’t stay doing the same weight throughout the entire programme, you need to try and lift heavier as you work your way through the “Tone Tech”.

Challenge yourself!

Remember one thing, no training programme will work unless you do!

I don’t want you to buy it unless you’re 100 % certain you’re ready to change your life and stick all the way through it.

Disclaimer:

I wouldn’t recommend this programme for obese people due to it’s high impact nature. If you’re a beginner or even an experienced gym member I really want you to study the detailed programme first and make sure you’re doing the exercises right before you attempt proper training. Seek doctors approval before starting this programme.

How To Use Your Own Environment To Get In Shape – 2 Birds With 1 Stone

2 Birds With 1 Stone Workout:

When I was about to close the gym I was debating with myself whether I should stay and workout or just do one at home. Then I looked at the floor and there was a lot of weights laying on the floor like usual so I thought to myself why don’t I just do something for every weight that I pick up, so I did. The workout felt really good because I had a clear goal that all the weight has to be put away so I was just doing the exercise and going on to the next. I didn’t want to leave in 3 hours so I haven’t rested for too long in between of sets. This resulted in a great leg workout, done easily around 500 reps.

Here is the run down of what I did:

For every plate that was either 2.5 kg, 5 kg or 10 kg I would do 10 squats while holding on to the weight.

For every plate that was either 15 kg , 20 kg or 25 I would put it back on the weight rack and do 10 powerful jumping squats

For every piece of blue roll or rubbish I found I would do 10 lunges ( 5 on each leg )

For every dumbbell found I would first put it back where it belongs and do 15 jumping jacks straight after.

The next day I woke up and my legs were on fire, this is a great way to get your daily exercise while doing something that you have to. If you struggle with time doing a routine like this is a great way of squeezing in a workout. You can come up with your own routine for example doing a workout while you’re cleaning at home is a great idea. Every dish washed – 10 push ups, for every piece of laundry 10 high knees, every t-shirt that you put away 5 bur pees and so on. You get the idea. If you really value your health you will find a way to squeeze in physical activity, if not you will indeed find an excuse.

Common approaches to dieting that may lead to failure

Common approaches to dieting that may lead to failure

People that go on a diet usually will take the all or none approach which is not the best for making a behavioural change. We all have habits and some habits are bad and some are good. It’s near to impossible to change all your bad habits for the good over night. It’s much wiser to go for a small change, one that you’re ready to tackle for example drinking water and cutting out sweetened drinks, sodas & juice. After you have successfully established a new habit and proved to yourself that you can do it, pick a next one for example avoid skipping breakfast.

Some common behaviours:

Changing the entire diet into foods they don’t like – lets face it how long can you maintain eating stuff that you hate… a day?

Starving which only leads to unhappy life and binge eating – you can still enjoy food and be healthy at the same time.

Giving up after a while due to confusion – like with anything in life you need to educate yourself to get a better understanding, without the right knowledge the thought of healthy eating can be overwhelming which is totally understandable.

Change is possible you just got to believe and follow through, stay strong people!

4 Random Gym Mistakes that you might be doing!

mistakes

1.Training partners

Training partner should not be someone that distracts you, the only time you should train with somebody is when you know the other person pushes you to do better and just gets on with it. Avoid having bad training partners and most importantly don’t be one of them. I personally love training with other people because there is always something new to learn!

2.Performing the exercises wrong

Performing your exercises wrong is not only a bad way to get stronger but also it increases the chances of an injury, if you have a mirror USE IT! When you just assume you doing an exercise correctly you might find yourself having muscular imbalances in the future, just like I did and it took a while to get it sorted out. Bottom line is, you owe it to yourself to get the right technique into your training right from the beginning.

3. Consistency

Consistency is the key and that goes to any area of your life. If you workout for 2 weeks and then you stop, you will never achieve results great enough to keep you motivated. Make training a part of your everyday life, increase the intensity and duration little by little. You don’t have to start with 2 hour sessions right of the bat.

4.Commit and execute

Some people are committing to a workout and they quit after 30 minutes of being in the gym. I’m not saying you can’t get an excellent workout in 30 minutes. I’m talking about people that go there for 30 minutes and do 1 half hearted set every 5 minutes while talking to their mate on the phone. When you’re in the gym, you’re in the gym. Give it all you got!
