Sounds like we are talking about two things here…
- A general lack of knowledge and experience when it comes to program design.
- A lack of internal motivation and discipline to train you’ve recently discovered as a result of losing the external motivation of coaches putting foot to ass.
As far as program design is concerned you need to determine your goals and design a program around that. Christian Thibaudeau wrote some articles about this…
You may find that your lack of motivation is a result of not having any real focus in the gym as a result of not identifying goals and designing a program. If I just went to the gym, like a lot of people do, and just kind of putter around and do a little bit of this and a little bit of that I would lose my motivation, too. And without a program, maybe this accurately describes your current situation.
But if after designing a program you still don’t have the motivation to get your ass to the gym and train hard, maybe find some friends that can provide the same type of external motivation that your coaches provided. The kind of friends that don’t take no for an answer and will come drag your bitch-ass out of bed if that’s what it takes and can scream at you through sets. Some people need that…[/quote]
