Once again, the new year is upon us and with it comes everyone’s new year resolutions, and If all goes to plan, by this next year all your friends and family members will be filthy rich with amazing bodies. We both know this is unlikely to happen, but who is to say you yourself cannot experience massive change in your life within a year’s time? The process is surprising easy to do, yet by this time next year 9/10 of your friends and family members will be no closer to their goals than they sit today.
Most of the topics I write about tend to be on the scientific side of exercise – discussing different ways to improve an exercise or program to elicit greater results. As important as proper technique and programming is, it means very little without proper motivation. Few places is this more true than in exercise. Even with great programming and specific goals, no results will be seen without hard work and determination. Motivation is what gets you out of bed for that early morning run and allows you to push through those last few reps of a set. Ultimately, motivation is the deciding factor in the success of any venture in life, not the means in which a person uses to get there.
