Causes of Losing Motivation

So, what causes you guys to lose your motivation to work out? I figured we could all list some things and find some solutions. I worked out for 6 years straight. Was doing good, imo. Especially when I could save up to buy more weights. I was repping 280 pounds 5 times. Not bad for me. ...

Red face "I feel small in the gym"

Anyone else felt the same way? I mean, I look pretty good and well-built at home but when I enter the gym and look at myself in the mirror, I feel like I've shrunk. Now it's not because there are huge guys like Ronnie Coleman in my gym; most guys are my size or smaller than me. It does...

Second chances - My story

I wanted to share my story a bit in the hopes it may motivate others that are in need of a little inspiration. Age 30 for me was not my pinnacle and definitely not my re-emergence into something better. I felt like a 60 year old man trapped in a tired broken body, ready to rest. My knees were in...

Easy way to stay motivated during cardio..and anything for that matter.

Just thought of this today while I was biking in the trails here in Toronto. I was on the verge of stopping and taking a break when I thought hey...if I give up on this, I might as well hang up on life itself. Put your life on the line..theoretically speaking of course (don't kill yourself :)) ...

What was the initial thing that motivated you to BB or get healthy? Has it changed?

For me a girl was a reason I started working out. once I got ditched by this girl at prom, my workout intensity increased just to do it, JUST for the girls. Then once I came to the realization that you like what you are doing just for yourself and not the girls, well then I realized I reached that...

An Altered Idea To Motivate

Okay, to be straight up honest, I saw the thread title of a thread here, something along the lines of 'Write Yourself a Letter', and the OP's thought was initially write yourself a letter in which you can refer to when in low motivation levels. Now to twist that idea slightly, what if, you write...
