Re: Motivation for working out.
So you're dissatisfied with your body and you need to lift weights, yet you can't find the motivation? I'm kind of lost. Shouldn't that fact that you hate your body be motivation enough?
I recommend going on a bulking diet, I was in the same boat as you. Last winter I was 145-150lbs 5'10". I started a bulking diet about two months ago and I've been lifting for 5 weeks now. I am already up to 165 pounds. I tried lifting weight for 9 months and got nothing out of it. DIET is EVERYTHING, Trust me I have a very fast metabolism and I have to eat my *** off to gain weight, but everyone can. Look around on the internet for good bulking diets and do compound massive exercises in the gym. These exercises trigger chemicals in your body to make you bigger.
Don't worry about the small muscles at first. When you build your large muscle groups your body will send messages to the smaller ones to grow, to keep you in proportion. Do lots of Presses (flat bench, incline bench) Deadlifts and squats. Just concentrate on those for now you will gain weight. But remeber EAT EAT EAT EAT, when your full eat some more and always eat a big meal before bed. Trust me I thought I was hopeless as well untill I did lots of research and found info that gave me hope.
Find yourself a lifting partner, doesn't matter big or small just someone to keep you motivated on days you don't wanna go, and visa versa. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and do **** about it.
