- Surround yourself with positive people
It’s said that the 5 people who are most often with you decide what will be your life path. We are sure that when you’re in the gym, and when you see the guys with the best physical appearance, they are the ones filled with motivation, and are surrounded by people of the same character. Successful people are surrounded by successful people. Think about it, if you hang out with people who are out of shape, lack motivation and ambitions, it is likely you will also go that way. If you want to be the best, surround yourself with the best and be positive.
- We are all on the same track
Do not let yourself be intimidated by others in the gym. Understand that everyone has the same goal, to improve themselves. Improving the physical appearance and health for some may be harder and for some easier. This is a journey we all share, we might have different destinations, but are all on the road to self-improvement. No matter whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner, give your maximum. Everyone has started from scratch, and no one knows everything, so do not let someone’s knowledge and physical appearance discourage you. If you are a beginner, look for inspiration and motivation from advanced bodybuilders. Ask questions, seek advice and continue to educate yourself.
- The only person that can make you think that you are incapable of something is you
There are people who complain and seek excuses saying that they can’t achieve anything. “Can’t” is a word that should be removed from your vocabulary. Not only that you discourage yourself, but you discourage others around you. The only person that can make you think that you are incapable of something is you and the best thing about it is that you don’t have to listen to yourself. People who are incompetent or just lazy will revolt and say that you are unable to do something. They will make you doubt yourself and instead as demotivation, use this as fuel and motivation to prove them that they’re mistaken. Let your actions speak for themselves, show them and your true abilities, and ultimately only a great success will silence all those who do not believe in you.
- Have a goal
When you have a firm purpose and a plan you are much more likely to achieve what you want to achieve, than if you had no such plan. If you go to exercise without a specific purpose, motivation in many cases will not succeed. The gym can become a scary place if you go there without purpose and special routine devised in advance. You won’t see any results, and you will start to doubt everything you do, and it is very likely you will eventually quit. To be successful and to eliminate these doubts, it is necessary to set goals. You can change your attitude and optimistic thinking from day to day only if you have goals. When you achieve the goals you have imagined, do not stop here, continue to set new ones. Be proud of your small successes, they will give you bigger confidence to reach great success.
- The weight training will make me look like a bodybuilder or a powerlifter
The phrase we can often hear from women; “I’m afraid that if I train with weights I will become too muscular.” It is important to know that how muscular actually women can become is restricted by many factors. First, women do not have the required amount of testosterone in the body to build large muscle mass. Many girls go to the gym to lose weight, and usually in a deficit of calories, it is impossible to build muscle mass (lack of sufficient protein and carbohydrates).
Men have the right amount of testosterone in the body to build bigger muscle mass, and it requires less time. If you don’t want to increase your muscle mass a lot, it will be determined by your way of training, nutrition and supplementation. If you are constantly exercising with heavy weights, and your diet is aimed at increasing muscle mass, expect to get muscle mass quickly. If you continue to train with heavy weights and still want to reduce body fat, increase your intake of protein, control your intake of carbohydrates and fats, and do cardio.
