Monday Morning Unmotivation

If you need motivation to go to the gym to lose body fat and improve your health, I can't really help you. You need to find THE reason. But here's an odd idea. Read a history book. Discover how terrible everyone's living environments were in the past. See how easy we have it. The thought of being looked at as a weak, lazy sloth by those who have come before us might be the motivation you need. Or not. Who knows.

But don't go balls hard when you return to the gym after a layoff. If you haven't trained in 6 months, don't get mad at me for telling you to do just 1 easy set. That's still better than what you did for 6 months. Be conservative.

Just remember: Everything you do should have a good reason for you doing it.
