Enjoying Your Workout: Why It's Crucial and How to Do It
One aspect of working out that people seldom pay attention to is their own enjoyment of it.
After all, if your goal is to lose weight or to build muscle, why would it matter how much you enjoy your workouts?
The reality is, however, that it really does matter. It plays a big part in your motivation, in your workout habits and ultimately on your physique.
A lot of people approach working out as a chore. It's something they dread doing, but do it because they "have to" in order to get fit.
Yet the people who truly get fit tend to be the people who have a very different attitude. The people who really build the kinds of bodies they want are the people who look forward to every workout.
The burning sensation that you feel when you're working out can either be extremely unpleasant or one of the most motivating feelings in the world.
That burning feeling is a sign that you're on your way to achieving your goals.
It's a sign that your body is changing.
It's a sign that you're moving forward.
Once you can make that link on both a conscious and unconscious level, every time you feel the burn it'll feel great rather than bad.
So if your muscles ache, you feel short of breath, celebrate!
That’s your body working hard, getting fitter and it’ll feel easier next week!
