All I have to do is watch a work out video, or see an image of someone working out, and I get stoked. Why? Because when I see someone else working out it reminds me of how much I like the feeling of working out. When I workout I feel my muscles working, and know that I am doing something good for my body. I also like the way it feels as I build a healthier body.
As I work my upper body with weights I can feel and see my muscles working and flexing. Working my lower body, I feel power move through the various muscles in my legs, and glutes. I love doing planks, a lot people don't, but as I hold my self up I am gaining strength through out my core, arms, legs, just the whole body. Add a row to that plank, and build more muscle, plus since I started doing planks I no longer have lower back pain after standing for an hour. You can say that for me working out is an addiction, I love the way it feels, and want more. It may sound funny, but if I am not dripping sweat when I am done, then I didn't work out hard enough.
Motivating your self to workout may not be as easy it is for me. Find what motivates you, and use it whenever you need it. Remember while looking better, working out on a regular basis builds a healthier body. An appealing image in the mirror is just a bonus.
Because it has been over a week, I'm going to kind of ease back in. I'll be using the rebounder today which is not just a great work out, but will detox my lymphoids, considering I was just sick this is important. I will also be working my abs for about 20-25 minutes. Got to work that upper body so, I'll be doing 25-30 rows, curls, presses, flys, rows, and lateral raises.
What motivates you to keep working out?
