On Motivation

This isn’t necessarily about the motivation to train or to get stronger, although it can be applied to it, without a doubt. It’s obvious what motivation is: it’s what keeps us going. Why we continue to do something over a long period of time. However, motivation can come and go.  You don’t always feel like training, for one reason or another. It’s not always fun to workout or to do things we may have to do to achieve our goals, but, if we don’t do those things, nothing gets accomplished.

Sure, I try to keep things fun. I change it up with new training ideas and cool new anime workouts or sparring sessions, but, even then… sometimes, you just aren’t feeling it. There are some ways that you can stay motivated, though.

Train With Our Free Boot Camp!

Don't be intimidated by the complexities of training!

Join our boot camp mini-course to get started in the right direction!

  1. Keep it fresh!- Don’t always do the exact same thing. Things can get boring in a hurry and to avoid that, it’s always best to throw in some variety.
  2. Goals- Set both short-term and long-term goals. You’ll be surprised at how much faster the long term goal seems to get achieved, when you are continuously achieving smaller ones.
  3. Remember why you’re training- If it’s to look good, post a picture of what you’d like to look like in a place where you can see it a lot. If you want to be stronger, remind yourself why you want to be strong on a daily basis. It’s a great way to motivate yourself.
  4. Just do it- Sometimes you don’t want to train. Sometimes you aren’t motivated. To those times, I say– just train anyway! Seriously, if you don’t want to train, just go ahead and get ready to do it and just do it! You’ll thank yourself later. 
Sometimes life is going to get in the way of your training. It will stifle your motivation and drive you into stagnation. During these times, motivation is more about choosing to persevere, rather than a feeling. Many times, feelings will follow action. Let me tell you, my recent personal experience is certainly reflective of this sentiment.
I’ll try to post a lot more things for you guys this week. A lot of crap has been going on, but I’m not going to let it get in the way of posting. Thanks for your patience, guys. You guys are amazing!
Until next time, good luck and train hard!

  • You should know that I am a fitness trainer and I was looking to mix up my workout and found this site. I have taken all of the Dragonball workouts you have posted and adapted them each to month long fitness regimens. I now have my workouts ready to go for the next year or so.
