    Killed back tonight!!

    ?? I REALLY was in the zone! Listening to motivational speeches does that to you haha. If you guys are struggling to find that motivation I highly recommend making it a habit to listen to motivational speeches on YouTube!! It can be once a week, once a day, whatever you prefer...

    My motivation scale is at zero.

    Need some encouragement to go work out instead of buying cup cakes and going sit on the couch.

    I know this is pretty late (or pretty early

    for the rest of the world) but I just wanted to say I ran earlier in the day (which was yesterday) at a track field near my house and later on went to the gym to work mainly on chest. Let's say I gave it 100% and my muscles were shot near the end of the workout. Afterwards I did...

    Laughing at fat people at the gym is like

    laughing at sick people at a hospital. Don't be "that guy".

    I work out more than most,

    but not as much as some. It’s enjoyable for me and puts me in a good mood. Feeling sore from a good workout is worth it. And when I start to feel myself get stronger, or see a person checking me out for a bit longer than what is polite…THAT is what keeps me going with a...

    I don't like it very much

    because it kind of hurts but I'm assuming that the end game for all this pain is going to work out in the end. I don't have a routine at all. I just sort of do the deed. Like, sometimes I get up really early to go for a run. I like the cold sunrises. But I cant seem to get my...

    On A Mission

    I have been athletic since I was in grade school. I was on the track team, a cheerleader, gymnastics, rode my bike, and did most anything that kept me moving from yard work, swimming, and dancing. In my early 20's I was a high impact aerobics instructor. During the next 2...

    I've been working out

    for a little over 7 years and I've been eating decently so it shows. I feel like I'm being judged because I look good and it makes people insecure about themselves. I'm probably just making it up but I know people look and I'm actually the one who is insecure....

    Recently joined a gym with my friend

    and we've been doing a lot of plyo. I used to just do Insanity or workout to online exercise vids at home, but I guess I don't get the same motivation I do when I work out with someone at a gym. I'm not "fat" nor do I think of myself as "fat" but I've just wanted to maintain...

    So I'd love to go to my next workout today

    but I woke up so stiff and sore it felt like a chore getting out of bed. I could always see what it entails and go from there I'll be sad to not workout if I can't but I also don't want to hurt myself

    It's a shock to find how much strength

    and muscle I can lose after only a few months lay off. Early this year, I was using 10 lb dumbbells for skull crushers, and now even 5lbs are testing my limits. My chest exercises were the same. I had to drop to a much lower weight. My arms were shaking, and when I tried to do...

    How do I get myself into working out?

    I had a goal when I started and now I don't go even thought the gym is only 5-10 minutes on foot.. I'm paying $30 a month for the gym and haven't gone in almost two months so that's basically money I'm wasting. I can't cancel either because I'm on a 2 year contract.
