Do you want to give up working out?

Many people start things but never finish them because they give up too quickly. When it comes to being successful it’s never going to be easy, giving up certainly isn't going to help you achieve success. This a fitness blog and I talk about building muscle so I am going to talk about how people give up when they do not gain muscle as fast as they wanted, or when they start to feel a little pain. Some people even achieve results but something makes them stop and they never get back to lifting weights or exercising, in the end they get in worse shape than before they even started exercising.

Don’t Give Up


Giving up is easy, you do not get anything from giving up. I mean you do not get anything positive from giving up; you get depressed and feel like a failure when you give up. Muscles do not grow easy, building muscle is a hard and long journey. This journey often weeds out the weak, so that each week, each month all those guys not willing to put in the hard work, not willing to stand the pain and not willing to dedicate their time to the gym fall off like flies not having achieved anything, but those who make it, those who stick with it and are consistent build not only muscle but a high self esteem which improves other areas in their lives, those who make it come out strong. What you have to realize is that you may be weak now but everyone has to start somewhere. Weakness is a choice, you can be weak today but go to the gym, push yourself hard, push through the pain when your mind is telling you to give up and the beast that will result from this torture will be strong both in mind and body.

“Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one-yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown.”

It’s normal to want to take the easy option


I have felt like not going back to gym before, it was the easy thing to do but I said no! I am going to the gym even if I felt like shit and I would get there pump that iron, start feeling the pump and the endorphin rush and I would think “WTF was I thinking before”. Its hard sometimes going back to the gym if you have been missing a few gym sessions, one week  turns to two and the next thing you know you have not set foot in the gym in years. Do not allow that to happen for you, think about your goals, think about how you will feel once you look like your goal physique, think about how it felt at the end of your workouts. Remember that sense of achievement when you lift a heavy ass weight you could not lift before.

Never choose the easy path it often never pays off. Before you even think of giving up, try different things first when your current workout plan is not working. There is a workout that works for everyone out there you just need to find what works best for you. Giving up is just lazy, laziness will get you zilch. It’s easy being comfortable, eating whatever the hell you want whenever you want but what does that get you? Fat! It’s not easy counting calories, eating healthy and working out but it’s worth it because you get to look and feel like a Greek god. Think about that next time you decide to quit.
