On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 8 ways to get out of a workout rut.
Be honest with me, have your workouts been sucking lately?
If so, I’m going to show you how to turbocharge your workouts, so you can quickly get out of your workout slump.
But first, I get it.
Sometimes we can be full of motivation and love our workouts.
However, other times, our workout motivation drops to the floor.
Even though we still go to the gym, let’s be real, our workouts just suck.
Before I share the 8 ways to get out of a workout rut, scroll to the comment section below, and tell me how you turbocharge your workouts.
With that said, let’s jump into my 8 ways to get out of a workout rut.
I say this all the time.
In my experience, the most important way to get out of a workout rut is to follow an actual workout program.
It’s just like having a financial savings plan.
You are way more likely to stay consistent, and get great results, when you have a workout program to follow, that includes:
My Live Lean Afterburn 2.0 gym workout program provides you all of this and more.
Or, if you workout at home, my no equipment, bodyweight Live Lean 15 follow along workout video program is getting people, just like you, incredible results.
Go take the Live Lean Body Quiz to find the best workout program for you, based on your goals, fitness level, and access to equipment.
Go back and re-discover your “why”.
Think about why you’re doing this.
I want you to zone in on your intentions of why you’re working out.
Ask yourself, “why is working out important to you?”.
But please just don’t take the easy way out and say, “I just want to be healthy”.
That is one weak answer.
I want you to get specific on what “healthy” means to you.
Your why needs to be a strong enough connection to get you off your butt when you’re feeling lazy.
Really think deeply about your why and get it engrained in your mind.
If you are tired of traditional bodybuilding workouts, HIIT workouts, bodyweight workouts, CrossFit workouts, or dare I say, slow and steady LISS cardio workouts, switch to another workout style for your next phase of training.
But just don’t be a program hopper.
It’s important to finish your current program through to the end, for optimal results.
This one may apply more to the girls than the guys, but I’ll be honest.
Invest in your health.
Enjoy the new kicks.
To get out of a workout rut, try going to another gym location.
For example, if you’re a member at a big box chain gym, try going to another location.
Seeing new faces, new equipment, and different gym layouts can actually bring a fresh new wave of motivation to your workouts.
Let’s keep it going.
If you always train at 12:00pm, or if you’re always going to the gym at 8pm or 8am, get out of the monotony by switching up your workout times.
Go to the gym in the morning, go in the evening, or go after work.
Although it’s highly unlikely your body is actually overtrained, just giving yourself a week of mental rest can give you the motivation you need to go back and kick your butt.
You may just need a mental rest.
All right, let’s get to the last one.
Give your body a kick with a pre-workout drink within 30 minutes of your workout.
Hopefully you can apply at least one of these to your workouts today.
