Recently my schedule has changed, I get up at 8 am and get back home at 8 pm, making it a real pain to go to the gym. I've been skipping it lately.
>>
Go to a 24 hour gym
Work out after work
Do it because you enjoy it; find a new hobby if that's not reason enough.
>>
You're going to have to change your routine up a bit to compensate for either lack of going to the gym or lack of frequency. By doing a full body workout or something split up into less days, and then spending more time in the daya that you ARE able to train, you should be fine.

Attainable naturally?

I actually ENJOY lifting and look forward to it every day.

That's probably it, I have a 5-6 day routine. Anyone know a good 3-4 day routine?
>>
I have defined goals and will achieve them.

I'm young and won't have a second chance.

It's not because I want, it's because I have to. Yesterday and today I did 2 workouts as I had missed them.
>>
>>35172378
I actually like lifting, the hardest part is moving my ass to the gym, cuz I don't have any energy when I get home.
>>
>>35172291

How? I love lifting weights. And I love training.

Hard to say cause he has a pump + professional lighting + photoshop + he did the water/carbs shit these dudes do before photo shoots to look even better.

Motivation will only take you halfway
you need discipline to take you all the way

Discipline is pushing yourself out of your comfort zone
>>
>>35172291
It's all mental.
You can try doing other kinds of workout, like swimming, running.
>>
>>35172370

Absolutely not

I don't give a fuck.

It doesn't matter if I'm motivated or not, it's just a thing I do now.

might as well just flush your gains down the toilet

How are you at the gym from 10PM-12PM but wake up at 6:30AM, and work by 8AM

You get up at 8AM?fucking pussy...

Honestly I don't know what keeps me motivated. I've kind of just kept a steady routine the past 4 months and I feel like shit when I break it.

today i looked at my pecs and noticed that i had lost some fat around them since i last noticed their definition. was very happy since i haven't noticed anything different about my body since i lost 15 lbs
>>
I browse fat hate threads erryday.
>>
Usually I'll watch a music video and see the women and be like "yeah, I could be with them if I fucking tried" or I'll watch some random video of people doing cool shit and be like "I could be doing that if I fucking tried" and eventually that mentality got into how I generally think. It's like some aggressive form of cognitive behavioural therapy.

It's just ingrained into my thought process and I generally don't attach shit to lifting as it's just a process that needs to take place for me to achieve my goals and I enjoy the environment, the culture, and everything surrounding lifting.

I've never had an issue with motivation.

>started lifting

Also, I have a hot gf. Being/becoming more aesthetic is leverage for me.

Oh dude no doubt
>met current gf back in Winter quarter of school
>tfw I was fat as fatass
>we had good chemistry but I didn't have the balls bc worst shape of my life
>fast forward to 3 months ago
>get hold of her via instagram
>she's posting all her gains
>fitspo shit everywhere
>we joke about how she had to shut down her old instagram because of all the perverted DMs she got
>she mires my progress
>invite her out for drinks and a bite to eat
>both of us laughed so much our faces hurt
>she doesn't need that constantly texting constant contact all my ex's lost their fucking minds over
>simple supportive relationship we give each other plenty of space to live our shit

I couldn't be this confident if I were a fat piece of shit. I'm sure I would be jealous, insecure and beta as fuck.

And as I continue in making progress, the scale will tip more and more in my favor so far as the power dynamic of the relationship will work.

Fuck giving that up for what? more time to play video games? Nope.

My other hobby is latin dance and honestly, that's just another reason to be in the gym busting my ass. The only way you're getting girls to dance with you is you're either a phenomenal dancer or you're a good looking dude. I've got a beard and some muscles which goes a long way in getting dances, which will go a long way in dancing with more experienced followers which will go even further in making me a better dancer.

I genuinely have no reason to not be hitting the gym every day and while I'm not always 100% pumped to be there, I'm there nonetheless.

I read comic books. All the men in those things are effortlessly ripped and I feel like a fat, worthless POS in comparison so Zi have to continue to lift.

I was motivated for a month. When i was unmotivated i told myself, if i stop now, i'll never get back up. Got through that stage and now its just a part of me..

How do you guys come up with excuses to miss the gym?
I seriously start feeling like shit when I skip it.
I had to skip the gym for a week because of an injury and I swear I almost went crazy.
>>
>>35172378
this
actually lifting lightens my mood a lot, so I get to be more easy going, sociable etc

gains come 2nd place

No.
OCB has stated himself that he never ran that routine. He said it looked good though.

Also helps that he was roiding.
>>
>>35172291
I can't stop wanting to fuck every hot girl I see. Lifting helps me achieve these goals. =]

What keeps me motivated? At first it was hate aimed towards the drunk, ugly girl that called me skinny and useless. Then it was resentment towards myself and my life choices. Then it was lust over a girl I thought I could make mine. Then it was narcissism over myself and my image.

And then one day, it was clarity. Lifting gives me a representation of self that no can or would give to me. That's why I do it. It's so powerful to have clarity. You can't be stressed, depressed, irritated, bothered, or just plain miserable over the things you have clarity. It's not me vs him, or me vs the world. It's me vs me. And it's a battle I come ten steps closer to winning every single time I step into the gym. That's why I lift.

I touch my cheeks and ask myself: "Do you want them to get bigger, or keep getting smaller like they have been?"

Also ask:
>do you want to look like shit when you meet with the ex you still love in January?
>do you want to feel like a lazy shit?
>do you want to sit on your ass all day like former autist roommate you hated?
>do you want to only fuck girls you are ashamed to say you have fucked?
>do you want to not feel awesome at the beach in 6-7 months?
>why would you get your heart condition fixed if you aren't going to be active?
>why not be the handsomest of your friend group?
>why not just feel better in general?
>>
>>35172291
It's NOT about motivation. It's about setting GOALS and having the DISCIPLINE to achieve them.

STEP 1: Start by setting goals. Make them quantifiable and achievable. e.g. "I'm going to lose 10kg in 4 weeks". Or "In 2 weeks my bench press will be 5kg stronger".

Step 2: JUST DO IT. Don't let your dreams be dreams.

if you think about it, losing motivation is just a failure at making solid predictions about your progress

if before you started, you knew that you'd get to some point where you give up because you're "unmotivated" why even try in the first place?

motivation and data collection are bros -- the problem is /fit/ is full of D-students who:
>estat their SAT scores
>participate in /nofap/
>subscribe to /keto/
>whine about protein flavors
>think 5x5 is enough volume
>eat like shit

if you wanna stay motivated:
>keep track of your shit
>set realistic goals
>achieve them
>repeat
