Training Tips Of The Day – Take It Easy, Sometimes

Sometimes it just sucks. Let’s speak the truth. 

There are days when it can feel monotonous. Times when you feel like you aren’t making progress and times when you feel like you’re falling backwards. 

Some days you look in the mirror and you ask yourself “Why am I doing this? What is the point?” There will be times when you wake up and your body is begging you to stop so you concede for a day, and then another, and before you know it you’ve started getting comfortable. 

It happens, and the truth is every single person experiences these lapses in motivation. From professional bodybuilders, fitness influencers, to new lifters, everyone gets fatigued; physically and mentally.

The biggest advice to everyone is to be easy on yourselves. 

If you feel like you need to step back and breathe, do so. If your body is telling you to slow up, slow up.

 Know your limitations and listen to your body and mind. 

You won’t lose your gains by taking a breather for a few days or even a week or two. 

The gym will always be there to welcome you back when you’re ready.
