Motivation for training

So what do you guys do to get yourself motivated on days you just dont feel up for training. Music, incentives or just grit your teeth and get it over with.
 
I normally find im always up for it as really enjoy training but on the odd off day need to psyche myself up with music to get in the mood and get the adrenaline going

    As Yoda once said, do or do not, there is no 'try'.
     
    I'm always pushing myself because the truth is I'm never happy with how I look. I'm my own worst enemy but also my best asset. Sometimes it's not a bad thing to be such a critic.

    Good point. I think it does make a difference when you harden your resolve and just 'do'. Ive certainly found more gains that way by not making excuses to not train and just getting on with it.

    You need to try and visualise your end goal and get excited by it. Low motivation days are the days when you are focused more on your short term pleasure (slobbing out /pigging out) than your long term goal, often this is brought about by tiredness. Put on a pumping song, picture what your aiming for and try and get excited about it.

    OP makes it sound like a chore. I love it, it's what I look forward to after work, no motivation needed.

    It has to be done. Once you get that clear in your head, some days you'll do it gladly, other days it'll be more difficult.
     
    Think of training like eating, drinking or even breathing, i.e. a necessity. Then just get on with it.

    Yup me too.
     
    I think it's the same for most people, training is fine but it's any sort of strict adherence to diet that most people struggle to stay motivated for IMO.

    I agree it is at times difficult to get motivated for the gym,especially if there are some other issues/problems in life going on too.
     
    Best way ive found is to think of how fat and unfit i would get if i didnt work out.seems to do the job for me.

    To do something I love I don't need motivation.

    If you love something let it go,if it comes back to you it's yours,if it doesn't it never was.

    It does help alot when you actually enjoy training......and for the days when I cant be bothered its a case of reminding myself that it has to be done in order to reach my goals.

    It's such an ingrained habbit, I don't need to motivate. Actually, having to take time off because of my accident is killing me!
