HOW TO KEEP UP THE DRIVE
You probably already heard about the “drive” in bodybuilding and
the importance of mental strength. BUT, what is it? Now, these are
the keys to your success.
What we are talking about is DEDICATION and CONSISTENCY!
The key is to keep your inner drive going and staying motivated on a long term. It is about working out
day by day, having your well timed meals, counting your macros, planing your gym sessions, rest days
andstaying in your sleep schedule.
It’s the drive that makes it all possible and bring you the results you are working and struggling for. It’s
the focus and the mental power, that allows you to hit the gym 7 days a week without burning out.
BUT how you can create that DRIVE and keep going day by day? Well, everyone will have their own
methods, but there are few important general factors that are common to most people.
#NO NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
Always think positive, ban all the negative minds out of your head, leave it behind you when it comes to your
workout session. The negative energy will put you down and infect your focus. For that few hours, there is
nothing but the gym! FOCUS on it!
Proper organization is very important when you talk about bodybuilding, eating clean and working out daily.
It is a challenge to keep up your workout and eating routine going.
You have to evolve a routine that works for YOU, that means to time when you meet your friends, visiting
family, going to work, cooking and getting your meals etc. Always be prepared for the unforseeable!
If you aren’t organized with your time, you will find that other projects keep pushing back your gym appoint-
ment and that drive will be gone.
#DON’T MISS YOUR MEALS & WORKOUTS
If you got your drive going, don’t destroy it by missing your planned workout or your meal you have prepared
the day ago. Once you figured out your routine, try to repeat it next day. It will work.
#REALISTIC GOALS AND SMALL STEPS
What do you want to achieve next? Better Arms, Chest or a to lower your body fat? Try to spot little changes
you are making weekly, focus and work on it!
Just for example, it is much easier to lower your bodyfat from 16% to 14% …than to set a huge goal to lower it
from 16% to 8%. Just do it step by step, little things will keep you going!
