Why people don’t bother working out

People, especially in their youth do not mind doing daily, fun exercises. To them, it is just a game to play or a race to run. The older they get, the less they do, as funny as that sounds.

Pertaining to the gym though, often times people do not see the results they want to see and often times, quit going after only two or three months.

They work on reaching their goals, and often times because they have no professional guidance, they misjudge their goals and shoot way over what can be expected.

For example, I was talking to an overweight man, perhaps in his late thirties or early forties about what his plans were and how he was planning to achieve them.

And what he told me, really shocked me! He was planning on losing 90 lbs. in 2 months! TWO MONTHS!

Arnold Schwarzenegger
Major Gains!

I didn’t argue with him, telling him that that would be near impossible, becuase quite frankly that is none of my business. But it was a good reminder to set realistic goals and have a real way to attain them.

People are alot like the man I met at the pool, thinking they can achieve anything in the gym in a very small time frime to which I respond. “If it took you 20 years to put on all of that weight, how long do you truthfully think it will take to lose?”

Now don’t get me wrong, I am all about reaching maximum potential in as small a time frame as possible. Which is why it is best to talk to professional and plan your workouts and your diet.

Here is my absolute favourite video for when I need a “pick me up” in the gym:

After watching this video, if you STILL do not feel like going to the gym, you may want to get a checkup at the doctors office.

That video alone has helped me break some of my self imposed barriers and move on to lift heavier and all in all, make more gains!

There are literally thousands of videos just like that that you can listen to at the gym.

If not, you can bring your phone and listen to music or really whatever you want.

19 Exercises every 35 year old can do

 The 19 Exercise that everyone able to do, should do:

  1. Lat Pull-down Behind the Head

  2. Lat Pull-down in front of you

  3. Military Press

  4. Military Press Behind the Head

  5. Squat

  6. Row

  7. Upright Row

  19. Situps

With these 19 exercises, a workout plan can be formed, and you can start seeing daily improvements. A humungous factor of all of this is diet.

Working out is only 30% of the work, dieting covers the rest. If there is there one thing that leads to disappointment in the bodybuilding community, I would have to say the nutrition, or lack thereof.

If people were to put as much emphasis on their dieting as they do on workout plans (hint hint, can you see what my next post will be about) Then they could start seeing results!

It isn’t uncommon that I see people that I workout next to at the gym, in McDonalds. Here they are doing 10 sets of 150 on the bilateral raise and in they come ordering two bigmacs and a fry to go. Simply Inconceivable.

They simply lack the discipline to go out buy some chicken, grill it, and steam up some rice.

Here is a link to diet plans & how to schedule your own. You can do it all online at the comfort of your own home. I rkemember having to make my own, and that was a daunting task. Having nothing but the internet and a will to do it, I accomplished what my goals were set to.


My before and after

(These are half of the gains to be made for the season, now I am off to bulking.)

Now that we have gotten that out of the way, we will talk about supplements.

Supplements are a HUGE factor in the bodybuilding realm. Half of all bodybuilders take 3 of the 4 that I have displayed below.

(Sorry the image will not upload, so we will have to continue this rant onto another page)

Now, I often here people say “I NEVER want to look like that” and to that I simply respond, don’t worry, you never will.

I hope you enjoy these exercises and start seeing results within the next 30 days!

Go out there and get your workouts and diet right!!
