Motivation 101 – A day in the life of a bodybuilder!


A common problem everybody suffers with at some point, on our struggle to become fitter and healthier, is motivation! Everybody struggles with it, weather gym-motivation-mohammad-aliyou are just starting out, have been working out for years or even if your a fitness professional, at some point you will hit a wall and ask ‘can i be bothered?’. Its at this point that successful people are separated from unsuccessful people. It not only for fitness, its in any aspect of life, at this point, when you hit that wall, successful people will drive on, climb over that wall and continue forward on the road to achieving their goals. Unsuccessful people however, will back up have a little look around for a nice excuse, then run away from the wall and probably come back another day to do exactly the same thing!

To help all of you who are reading this post and thinking, ‘Yeah! I hit those walls’, I’m going to be posting a series of Motivation 101 posts. These posts could be anything, from video’s, to quotes, to just images or songs, but they are going to be things that get me going, that get me motivated and that I think will do the same for you!

Today’s post is a documentary, it follows 2009-2010 Arnold Classic winner Kai Greene through a day of his life. This documentary was one of the first things I watched that really made me realize that fitness isn’t just a phase and it isn’t something that is going to repay the hard work you put in after two weeks. Fitness is a life long commitment, and the more you put in, the more you get out! Anyway the video is posted below, take a look for yourself and then ask yourself, are you willing to do this? Do you have what it takes?
