    The first thing you want to do after a long day at work is chill out right? So you do so and say to yourself I'll hit the gym in 30 mins or so you think, next thing you know you're glued to the tv and want to chill out some more... haha

    Best thing to do is go straight to the gym after work... if you do go home grab something to eat, and hit the gym.... The hardesr part is making the trip... once you're at the gym and get started you'll be glad you did.

    when i started weights i said to myself, i will try this for a month. 4 little weeks and if i see no change whatsoever or feel little benefit i wont bother. 7 months later i am still at it very very consistently. Im not saying u will become big or toned in 4 weeks, but in that very short space of time u will def feel a change. U will feel better about yourself.

    Once u see the changes starting u really dont want to quit it. I always say to myself if i just sit here and do nothing i will never change, but if i do something, even if its just a simple 3 times a week workout programme, i will change.

    I am knackered coming in from work as well m8, but i generally take 15 mins to chill then i just go and do my workout. U never ever regret working out, it gives u a buzz.

    Start off slow and simple and build easy, i promise u that u will def see a change and when u start to see even minor gains, u will want more n more and then motivation just grows from there.

    Good luck and get lifting

    Yup, I go before work too, depends on your gym's opening times though - I'm like a kid in a sweet shop when I find myself in an almost empty gym at 6.30am! No waiting, no posers (still gettin their beauty sleep...), then after work I can crash on the sofa. Sweeeet.

    In all honesty when I feel like that I generally find it one off 2 things.

    I haven't eaten enough reguarly, ie, had lunch at 12.30 and nothing in between,
    by home time I feel knackered.

    Or haven't drank enough fluids, Loadsa coffee maybee but if I don't keep drinking water throughout the day, I feel really lathergic and knackered by the end of the day.

    I've never liked the idea of gym after work so i did something about it.

    I went in my lunch time but i got a new job which wouldnt allow for a lunch time break so i had to go before work.

    f you 100% want to do it then you will work around it, it's not easy but you need to fight to get into the habit

    i go after work for weights. Hate it some days, but actually look forward to it most days, even if it has been a hard days slog. You'll get into a routine and it wont seem half as bad as now
