Start With Your Favourite Exercise

We all struggle with motivation from time to time.⁣ ⁣ Hopefully your training isn’t so boring that this is a rarity. ⁣ ⁣ ***Side note: if it is boring, then it’s your fault. Find a better group to train with or a program you love. Find a better trainer or pick some new goals. Training shouldn’t be a hassle! ***⁣ ⁣ Back to the article…⁣ ⁣ When you do have that rare day where you’re feeling shitty, it’s important to have something to combat it, so you can keep your consistency up (remember consistency is key). We’ve spoken about the 2-minute drill in the past. Often the hardest part is starting, so just tell yourself “I’m only going to do this for 2 minutes.” Generally once you start, it’s not as bad as you built it up to be in your head and you keep going. Go check out that article if you’re interested but that basically covers it.⁣ ⁣ For this article, I want to talk about beginning with your favourite exercise.⁣ Everyone probably has a favourite exercise. One thing they could do on their death bed. For me it’s the bench press. For some it might be bicep curls, and others it might be jogging.⁣ ⁣ Whatever the exercise is, it doesn’t really matter.⁣ ⁣ It might not even fit in with your plan for that session. You might have a lower body session planned but couldn’t be assed doing it. Start with some chin-ups or sit-ups. Whatever gets you going and switches your mood from ‘I can’t be fucked’ to ‘WHAT’S NEXT!’.⁣ ⁣ As I said earlier, I hope your training’s not too boring that you’ll need this advice but it’s important to have these tools in your toolbelt. This will help keep the ball rolling and you sticking to your training plan.⁣ ⁣ #one22
