Enjoy your workout

Recommended Posts

"Enjoy your workout " that is what I heard when I walked into the gym today.  I let that sink in for a minute and I thought "yeah I will enjoy my workout".

I hear a lot of people say that they don't like working out, that it feels too much like "work". I have realized that I LOVE working out. I love everything about it.  I love eating and knowing I am fueling my body when I eat properly. I love planning my workouts. I love trying new exercises,  new grips, new rep ranges. I love trying to make each rep harder to do then the last.

I love thinking about my goals. Visualizing myself pumped from an intense session. I love buying gym clothes but even more I love wearing them. I love putting on that stringer in the locker room. I love knowing that a few years ago I would never be caught dead wearing one in public. Now I love getting pumped and flexing during my workout while wearing one. I love leaving the gym and walking down the street, pumped in my stringer.  I love that feeling. 

Even though it is hard. The gains come slowly and there are set backs, but I love that each meal, each workout, each motivating thought is driving me to my goal. 

So to those who are just starting out or those who have stopped or have had set backs,  don't give up.  Keep pushing. Learn to enjoy your workout. If you stick with it you will reach your goals.

My goals keep changing as I grow and I am sure I will never be satisfied but I will be happy and proud of my achievements. I may even act a little cocky, flex in public, wear stringers on the street, flex for admirers or just be plain happy that I feel like a bodybuilder. 

And on that note,  I AM a bodybuilder.  I have gone from 145 lbs to 190lbs. I have watched my strength and size go up over the last 10 years.  I may not be the biggest, leanest or strongest but I have built my body and that I am proud of.

So enjoy the workouts cause I know I sure will!

I love it to. Gym time is my favorite awake time of just about any day. 

Awesome progress, dude.  Keep crushing it!

I hear ya man! It is hard having my off days. Lol.

You have some killer gainz bro! Keep pushing and making progress!

I find that I can get to transform myself when I am in the gym.  In my head while lifting I get to be that alpha beast who is pushing and pumping heavy ass weights.  That guy who does not give an f who sees me or what they think while i grunt, flex and check out my pump!  It is me and the iron. Building my muscles, pushing them beyond what I think they can handle, only to come back the following week a little stronger and a little bigger.

Damn. I am ready to train again now! !

Dude, that was one of the most motivational things I've read on this site... and there's a LOT of very motivational stuff here!

Thanks for posting it, and congratulations on your fantastic progress.  145 to 190 is a HUGE amount of lean muscle to add!

Thanks man ! Glad you think so!  Yeah my eventual goal is 210 at 10%bf.

Thinking about dedicating a thread to my bodybuilding thoughts.  Typing that up was really motivating for myself. Helps me to realize I have actually become the type of guy I use to admire!

No stopping me now! ! Bigger and bigger I grow!

Thank you.   It's tempting to print that out and put it on the inside of the sun visor as a reminder to read when I get to the gym.  May not need it every day, but inspiration is always welcome!

heck yeah dude!! You should!! I ended up printing it out as well and keeping it in my workout log book.
