Sure, there are many days when I’m tired or just not “feeling it.” But I usually go to the gym and do my thing. Sometimes, it takes me a minute to focus on the task at hand, but once I get started, I’m usually good to go.
If I’m overly tired or feeling bad, I’ll cut back the volume for the day, but I’ll get right back to it the next time.
For the periods of time (in the past) where I lost motivation for weeks and months at a time, all it took was a good kick in the ass and a decision to get myself on track. This happened last year. I went into an unmotivated state from May until about October. Even though I was training, it wasn’t the best training I had, and I was eating as clean as I usually did. As I kept losing strength and size and gaining fat, I knew I had to do something.
I made up my mind to get back on Renegade Training. I’ve been doing that since November. I’ve made awesome progress, and I’m doing what I enjoy and what works for me the best. I have a few more weeks of my current Renegade program and then I’m switching gears to another Renegade program. This is what I love most. It makes me feel good, keeps me healthy and makes me look good too. That is motivation enough, even when I am feeling tired or run down every now and then.
