Everyone in the world has dreams. They might be different from each other. But they all do dream about various things. And there are things that most of us dream about. Having a good fit body is one of those dreams that we all do have.
We all look into the ones who possess a good physique and we dream to have one of them. How about stop dreaming and work them to become true. Well, most of the people watch workout videos daily.
Millions of views we have in YouTube working out videos confirm that. They look to get inspired by these and start working out. But eventually, they lose faith and stop working out.
Here are 15 ways which you could use to hang on with workout and stay motivated with it.
1. Set a goal
This very crucial. You should have a goal for anything. When it comes to working out, it is more important to have goals. It is better if you have short-term goals and long-term goals.
Short-term goals will show your progression and how much you have reached to your dream and long-term goals will show how much you should have to reach there while keeping you motivated.
2. Workout early in the day
Mornings are the best to work out. It is a new day and you will have no problems popping into your mind. Grab your workout kit and get into the gym early in the morning and it will help you to have a fresh start for the day.
If you pick evenings to do your workout, that may not work out best because you will be tired after doing all the work throughout the day.
So doing workouts in the morning will keep you motivated not only to workout but also for other tasks.
3. Workout with a friend
You should have a workout buddy. When picking a workout buddy, you should pick someone who has the same mindset as yours and he should be motivating you to do workout and reach your goals together.
He or she could be useful when going through the workouts and he too could have your help.
4. Start slowly
Do not rush out. Just start slowly and take one thing at a time. Just finish the day and have the thought that you finished the first day. You can go hard eventually.
If you go hard in the beginning, you will feel fed up with your workout which is not good at all. So take it slow at the beginning.
5. Take one day at a time
Just put your mind on today’s workout. Do not think about a thing that you suppose to do in weeks. It will put more weight on your mind. Just finish today’s workout schedule and be happy that you did it.
6. Select the correct music
Music has many characteristics. It can change your mindset and body language just in a second. So when working out, select good motivational music that will keep you motivated to finish your workout.
You should get that “I can do this” feeling when listening to your music. That will keep you away from giving up.
7. Observe the progress
You can do this in many ways. The best way is to take pictures of your body in a regular time interval.
By doing this you can compare the pictures you took with the previous ones and it will definitely motivate you to reach your ultimate goal.
8. Exercise even when you don’t feel like to
There will be times that you do not feel like to go on a workout. That is the time that you should definitely workout.
Do it only once. Then you will definitely do it again. Because people do not hesitate to do things that they had done before. This will motivate you and stop being lazy.
9. Buy some new training kit
Upgrade to better workout kit or go for a new kit after two to three months of your beginning.
Fresh kits will give fresh starts and will lead to continuing your training with passion. It will definitely motivate you and others too will motivate by you.
10. Change it up
Go for a new schedule regularly. Do not work out with the same schedule for long. It will not help you to be motivated and it will definitely not help you to build your physique.
So get instructions from your instructor and go for different schedules with the time.
11. Tell everyone
Talk to your friends and relatives and tell them about your goals. That will give you a target and keep you motivated to go on a workout. It will give you the feeling that “I will show you”.
And if you didn’t do it, that will make you embarrassed to face your friends and relatives. So that is definitely a motivation.
12. Workout while looking in a mirror
Mirrors are reflections. That will reflect you who working hard to get to that dream physique. And you will be definitely motivated by seeing you doing exercises and seeing those curves and nerves which tell you are getting closer.
13. Ignore what anyone else say
Do not listen to the rubbish. Nothing is impossible. Even the word itself says “I’m possible”. So ignore the ones who demotivate you and prove them wrong by reaching your ultimate goal.That is the only thing that you can do to shut them up.
14. Look into more workout videos
Stay motivated with a workout by watching more and more workout videos. Watch those transformation videos where people got fat to fit and thin to fit. It will lead you to make your own transformation video.
Take videos while you work out and put them together as a motivational transformation video to show your success story.
15. Challenge your self
Try to increase your repetitions regularly. If you do 10 pushups today, try to pull it up to eleven tomorrow and to twelve days after. Be a challenge to yourself and know the factor that you are the only one who can hold you from not getting to your goals.
If you put something into mind and work hard for it, you can definitely achieve that goal.
