Exercising on Monday sets the tone for the rest of the week. It keeps things “even” and is a simple way to organize your workouts for the rest of the week. It is also a great way to “restart” the week if you spent the weekend eating a lot of food.
Grab some Tunes
Spend some time gathering a list of songs you can put on your iPod and create a playlist. There are a lot of great new songs that you can use, however I still love going back to the old Rocky soundtracks. They really pump you up.
Don’t Skip your Workout
You should take a break from intense workouts, however do not take too long. I like to use the 2-day rule. If you take more than 2 days rest, then you need to FORCE yourself to exercise on the third day.
Do Stuff you Like
If you’re having a tough time sticking to your workout programs, maybe you’re doing something you don’t like. If you’re trying to go to the gym and lift weights, but are unable to get yourself excited about doing it, perhaps it’s time to try a different activity.
You can try to perform some bodyweight movements instead. Click here for some great exercises.
Rewarding yourself is a great way to keep yourself motivated. However, do not reward yourself with food. Perhaps reward yourself with new clothing, or a with some other purchase that will help keep you on track.
