    Hitting the Gym

    Everyday it is the same old thing. You have plans to work out but nothing happens, you just cannot get yourself out from your bed and go to the gym or even the tracks for that matter. Gym work out is not an easy thing to do for sure, and people tend to give up very easily. People have a hard time to wake up and run, let alone lift weights and do resistant training. If you are failing horribly in hitting the gym then you should take a look at what to do.

    Hit it on a Monday

    Out of all the days in your week you need to as a rule of thumb go to gym on a Monday. Do everything you can, even if it is for just half an hour, you must make it to the gym on a Monday. Monday is the starting of the week and most people who miss their session on a Monday lack the motivation to go on for the rest of the week. So, hit the gym every Monday, if you miss it in the morning then make an attempt to go in the evening.

    Pair Up

    This is one of the best ways to stay motivated. You need to pair up with a buddy so that you can have each other's back at all times. This is important given the fact that most times we do not feel like doing it all by ourselves. Therefore, get a partner with whom you can hit the gym, and this way the two of you will keep each other on your toes each time you begin to show signs of weakness.

    Make Friends at Gym

    This is another great way to go about it. By making friends you will be under peer pressure, you will want to go to gym becuase your friend from gym is going there too, and he will probably have an inch bigger biceps if you miss the session on Wednesday. So, you will want to go to the gym, and besides you are having lots of fun with your gym buddies! So why not!

    Look up to Someone

    Eat Well

    When you eat well you prepare yourself for your sessions. Your body muscles work hard when you lift weights in the gym and they need repair, and this comes in the form of foods. When you eat well you motivate your body to go back again and hit it twice as hard. Eat good foods and avoid junk!
