How To Go From a Workout Hater To a Workout Lover

 

Do you hate working out? If you find yourself avoiding the gym even though you want to get in shape, there are some things you can do to make working out more fun. 

 

Working out is not meant to be torture. In this post, we are going to explore some tips to help you enjoy your workouts so you can stick to them and get results. 

Find a type of exercise you enjoy

If you have been going to the gym and running on the treadmill or lifting weights but it just doesn’t feel inspiring to you, try something different. Work with a personal trainer on a structured program or consider group fitness classes to mix it up. 

Fitness is not one-size-fits-all. There are thousands of different types of classes or training styles you can choose from. Keep trying different ones until something feels right for you and you find yourself wanting to go back. 

 

Work out with a friend

The buddy system works well for fitness motivation. If you are having a hard time sticking to a fitness regimen, team up with a friend to help hold yourself accountable. Set fitness goals, make workout dates, and check-in with each other regularly. 

 

Having the support of a friend will help you get over the hump when you want to quit or take your foot off the gas. 

 

Make a commitment to yourself 

The first month of any exercise regimen is the hardest. Not only are you building your muscles during your workouts, but you’re also building your motivation every time you show up for yourself. Once you get past the first few weeks of your new routine, it will feel more like a habit. 

 

Do everything you can to make the first month of your new workout plan easy on yourself. Lay your workout clothes out the night before. Make sure you have all the weights and accessories you need. Find the time of  day that works best for you. Set yourself up for success early on to help you stick with it when you might feel like quitting. 

 

Set realistic but challenging goals 

If you’re serious about committing to exercising regularly, set some goals for yourself. 

Your goals might be a number of pounds or inches lost, jeans you want to fit back into, or just that you want to be able to chase your kids around without getting out of breath. Whatever they are, make sure they are powerful enough to keep you going when you feel like quitting. 

 

Put visual reminders of your goals in places you will see throughout the day like on your mirror or on your desk at work. Set checkpoints along the way to make sure you are staying on track. 

 

Your fitness goals should feel like a stretch, but not completely out of reach. The idea is that they motivate you to change, but they shouldn’t feel so far-fetched that you will quit when things get hard.

 

☑️ Better Triceps?

 

A client came to me wanting to improve triceps, but she was only doing 3-4 triceps exercises without much of a focus on a total body routine. Plus her diet was not on point. Below are a few tips I gave her to improve triceps.

 

Mistake- Only doing exercises you “feel” in the triceps – This is a hard concept for most people to understand. They only know what they “feel” and  don’t understand the importance of getting stronger on compound multi- joint exercises.

Compound multi- joint exercises are exercises that work a lot of muscles at once. Examples are push ups and bench press variations. They work chest, shoulders, triceps and even your core. Getting stronger on these exercises will allow you to get stronger on the isolation exercises faster.

It’s still a great idea to include isolation exercises for the triceps. Think exercises that cause you to “feel the burn.”  But if that is all you are doing you are short changing your development.

 

Increase frequency and volume –

Train them more often, with more volume. Sounds simple, but it is not. Without an expert designing the program this method can backfire quick! If your recovery is not dialed in,  this can cause you to go backwards. 

I usually use the isolation exercises to get in a little more volume and frequency with less of a chance of overtraining. 

A personal trainer can also help you find the right intensity to train with. 

 

Bad Technique or Too much weight 

With bad technique you will not be working the right muscles. There is a good chance you will get injured. 

Using too much weight can lead to bad technique. Yes, you must increase weight over time. You must challenge yourself. Having a personal trainer design an effective program will save you a lot of time when it comes to finding the right weight for you.  

 

Not enough variety or too much variety

You have to find the sweet spot with variety. Too much or too little can hurt. 

You have some people who never do the same exercise twice. These people never get a chance to learn the movement and add weight to it over time. 

On the other end of the spectrum are the people who use the same exact exercise every time they train. It’s good to switch things up a bit. No, it’s not confusing your muscles. That is a myth! Variety can work the muscles from different angles. It will also increase motivation. 

 

Horrible diet –

The best workout in the world will do nothing to improve your triceps if you are eating horrible. Eat to fuel your workouts and recover. For some, Losing a few pounds to show definition is the way to go. Others might need to gain a few pounds of muscle.  A solid nutrition plan is always important!
