A question I get all the time is “How do I stay motivated to workout?” In the video below, I will explain how I stay motivated to workout and eat right everyday. I think it will help you to.
Here are some more tips to stay motivated
1. Make Exercise Part of Your Daily Routine.
Exercise should be a regular part of your day, not something sporadic. Just as you set aside time for meals, sleep, School and/or work, set aside time for exercise. Pencil it in on your calendar, program it into your smartphone and stick to it just like you would any other important appointment. For best results, you may find that exercising at the same time and on the same days each week (such as first thing in the morning Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) helps you stay on track.
2. Pick a SPECIFIC goal.
Goals that can’t be measured can’t be attained. You need to be able to determine whether you’ve reached your goals or not. For instance, a goal like “Get in better shape” is not easily measured, but a goal like “Have a 32 inch waist by July 4th,” is. Don’t start your resolutions until you have a measurable goal, or you will almost certainly fail.
3. MEASURE MEASURE MEASURE! (!!!BUT NEVER WITH A SCALE!!!!)
You must measure your progress, because when you see that you have progressed, you’ll be motivated to keep going. If your goal is to lose weight, or gain muscle mass, I STRONGLY suggest that you stay off of the scale!!! Scales are grossly misleading! if your trying to lose weight, you may be losing A LOT of FAT but you can end up weighting the same (or MORE) because you have gained muscle!
The same goes for people trying to gain muscle.The scale may tell you that your not gaining, or that your gaining really slow, but your probably gaining a lot more muscle than you think, but your weight may be staying the same because your workouts are burning your extra body fat off!
The best way to measure your progress is with a Tape Measure! I am going to go into more detail on this subject in upcoming blogs, but for now, just know that measuring inches you lose on your waist is the best way to tell if your losing fat or now.If your trying to gain muscle mass, its best to measure your arms, shoulders, chest and legs to see how much you have gained. I suggest you take your measurements once a week and make sure you keep records of your progress.
4. PLAN YOUR WORK AND WORK YOUR PLAN!
A goal without a plan is just another one of your bullshit ideas that will never come into fruition. You NEED to know time your going to workout everyday, and you need to know EXACTLY what your going to do! If your not following a detailed workout routine, your just waisting your time!
you do NOT wont to be one of those guys aimlessly wondering around the gym, not know what to do! Or even worse, you don’t want to be in there talking to people like the gym is the happy hour spot! if your going to do that, you should just stay home and pretend to work out there!
5. Be consistent! This is one of the most important tips! Here is a video about

(Some of people questioned if Michael’s pics are “real” because his tattoo is on the other arm in the 2ed pic. it is because he took the pic in the mirror. I don’t want to get into the “science” of that, but if I take a pic of my reflection, my tattoos with switch sides too. LMAO!)
IF your REALLY ready to take your body to the next level, make sure your on total body routine and diet plan!!! (you get both in my FULL workout plan). It may also help to try a good fat burner like TEA REXX, it is what I use to help me stay ripped.
