Tips for Bodybuilding Motivation
Be Motivated to Train a Body Part That Doesn't Respond. We all have certain body parts that feel good to train and respond easily, while others seem to respond reluctantly and we feel we have to force ourselves to train them. Whether it is your lats, abs or biceps that have decided to be reluctant there are ways to overcome unresponsive body parts. Methods of training can be used to shock these muscle groups into response. Creatine supplements can also be useful for kickstarting muscle development in areas which are proving unresponsive to training.
Why Do I Have to Overcome a Lack of Motivation When it Comes to Non-Responsive Body Parts? A bodybuilder with ambitions to compete can’t afford to let a lagging body part get in the way of his potential success. He has to put his mind into the muscle and establish precise control of every muscle of every body part. One way to get your muscle group activated is by using shock training. Find a new exercise which targets the group and use 12 to 15 reps at the beggining of your workout everyday for one week.This is designed to shock the muscle into response and should not be continued for more than a week.
Isn't Training Just Physical? There is only so much mental energy we can draw from our own resources. Good bodybuilders need to be intelligent. Training movements need to be physically experienced for the gains to occur. While motivation and positive thinking are neccesary for successful bodybuilding, determination will only get you so far. You also need to be smart about training. Do your research to ensure you are using your energy and motivation to produce the best results. Eagerly completing a workout that is not designed to work the right muscles, or not doing the right amount of reps will fail to produce the best results. To avoid becoming de-motivated by a lack of results, ensure you are performing a smart workout to get the best from your time in the gym.
How Can I Use The Mind to Focus & Help My Motivation? You can use your mind to role play certain experiences you’d expect along the way to competition. One such example would be to channel the energy of you standing beside your competitors on stage, with you outclassing your fellow competitors. You can use this newfound energy to help motivate you to train lagging, and all body parts, to achieve your ultimate development.
Motivation Builds Muscle
Draw from within to seek what your goals are, and be critical of what may hamper your bodybuilding success. Be honest with yourself. Ignoring critical weaknesses will not help you succeed in bodybuilding. Use your mind to dig deep and role play potential success to help you overcome these obstacles. You can draw from your friends to help your motivation. Friends may recognise when you are having a low day and when you can’t get into training. Having them comment that without you getting your training back on track, you will fail to make an impression in the judges’ eye, should boost your motivation to get back on track to meet your competitive goals.
