Why You Don’t Go to the Gym as Much as You Should. by Coach Stevo. June 22, 2016. 50 Comments.

Share it: In a survey I conducted for a newsletter, I asked potential and current personal training clients why they wished to hire a personal trainer. Far and away the top response was “lack of motivation.” In fact, that and “no time” are. Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak says that going to the gym should only be used as a way to tone muscles. You can get fit by eating healthy and staying active outside of the gym. If you do go to the gym, you really only need to spend 30 minutes there at the most, since you should only be targeting certain body parts and not doing cardio.

Go to the gym once, and the results can be hard to see. Collect a check at the gym, and the results are in your pocket. But let’s assume you can’t find somebody to pay you to work out (a likely. People who have just started going to the gym or who don’t have much time to go usually decide to the gym once or twice a week. While this is a good way to maintain a basic level of fitness, this frequency is not enough for your body to adapt to new muscle work, so you won’t see physical changes or an improvement in your athletic performance.

Once you’re committing to staying fit, you don’t want anything come between you and your workout. Even when you’re on a tight schedule, you find a way to fit in an exercise session. Fortunately, when you’re exercising at home, that’s not so hard to do.

If you’re more of an endurance athlete (running, cycling, swimming) then you fall in the middle, Cooper says. Someone in the middle needs more than the casual gym-goer, but you don’t need as much as someone doing hard-core strength training. Most.

Not only is it the most boring piece of equipment in the gym, it is also extremely ineffective. First off, the elliptical doesn’t use a natural body motion to work your body. You don’t.

Many people go to the gym, because they like the social part of it, the group training they can do, and the variety of equipment they can use. If you are self-motivated and build the habit to do it on your own, then do an at-home workout or program. Many times people need accountability and the gym is one way to do it. If you want to go the gym more often, you can but don’t work overwork tired muscles. They need the rest.

Instead, try a restorative yoga class. Take advantage of the sauna or whirlpool to ease soreness. Walk around the track. Benefits: A three to four day schedule allows for adequate rest.

Muscles don’t grow when you’re lifting weights. If you are completely sedentary, this might be very taxing and you’ll have to rest more, and do less at first. On the other hand, if you’re in somewhat good shape, this workout might be too easy.

Always meet challenges at your own fitness level, that’s what you’ll build on.

  • I think going to the gym should not only have net positive return but also net positive calves (my first calves comment) ��
    I love you Mr. Isuf. You drive me to put in work at the gym even during my bad days. Thank you.

  • For me the issue wasn’t about the discomfort of working out but rather feeling weak and tired (while working out) yesterday I just stopped my training because the quality of the workout isn’t there anymore..

  • Getting back to the gym last year was the best choice I have ever made. I was in a bad place. My confidence was non existent not just with my appearance but with other things. After losing 70 pounds and 15%bf while getting stronger at the same time has improved all aspects of my life. It empowers me to tackle all obstacles in my life when I see that barbell in front of me. Some of us are meant to be in the gym to feel complete. When I slack off I feel like I am missing something in my life.

  • I realized this 4 month before
    Now im focusing on my exam with doing ( weight training at home with dumble rod pushups pullups laungs and sprints..
    And getting same result as in gym for last 1 year

  • I have been thinking about this recently. I guess I started lifting 5 years ago. But I probably could attain the physique I have now with 3-6 months of actual solid work if I had to start again. I’ve spent a lot of time and money lifting, trying various programs and supplements, tracking food, and most of it has been a waste. Although I enjoyed some of it, it’s probably not the best way I could have spent my time. Recently I’ve been trying bodyweight exercises and a few months ago I started running. These things don’t really suit my large frame and I’m sure I’ll get back to lifting again in a few months, but for now, I’m excited to run as often as possible and I’m facing new challenges just using pushup and plank variations. Sometimes it’s ok to switch it up and have fun instead of chasing this make-believe ‘grind’. Thanks for the timely video Bromar!

  • Spot on advice. I usse another little trick to gt the job done. I don’t have much trouble with not wanting to go to the gym but just dont look forward to a tough work out. so I tell myself to just go play today. Maybe only go 75% and maybe try new exercises. I start off tht way with no pressure but before I know it I’m into my regular routine and never look back.

  • Perfect sense. My imaginary thoughts of working out is what stops me. Not limited to just exercise either, but just about most things that take more than 10 minutes to complete. For example, I used to be a triathlete. My wife wants to start riding bikes with me, I stopped riding 6 years ago. I want to ride, but my imaginary thoughts about the entire process involved with, prepping the bikes, loading, driving,unloading, riding, loading, driving, unloading, cleaning etc, just wear me out and makes me tired. I’m trying to change my thinking, it’s been a lot of work. I think my addiction to the internet has something to do with my problem. My attention span is very limited, My brain thinks like I’m surfing the web like a madman, searching for something, but I don’t know what it is. And I never will, because it’s a fake. Anyways, I’m going to workout now. Thanks

  • sometimes women possess such a natural type of beauty! That it can motivate and inspire and encourage progress for recovery towards our most wounded soldiers, or civilians who are in the critical care unit. Now if the natural beauty was working with formal education real hands-on experience just imagine what kind of recovery progress mankind would make physically mentally spiritually as a whole internally, for all eternity throughout existence. For femininity at its finest is raw, wild, naturally hard-core, organically appealing, truly captivating, absolutely appreciated, respected, desired, and spiritually sought after internally externally for all eternity throughout existence by all the gods and goddesses Angels of the ancient Royal elite bodyguard Guardian soldier warrior protector messenger superior father dominant gentlemen. In layman’s terms if you’re not physically fit, mentally sound, and spiritually balanced being able to express physical freedom then you cannot live up to the pleasure potential responsibility of femininity and masculinity. For only at that level of body awareness does one naturally have the self-control, discipline, loyalty, devotion, and playful determination to make the conscious choice if the want to be true towards love honor and the creation of life. Nonetheless anything outside of that is feebleminded physically inadequate submissive subservient which translates into being spiritually sexually suppressed internally externally for all eternity throughout existence case closed. Mercy forgiveness spiritual welfare death are not changing these facts protecting carrying compensating any whimpering wining souls or spirits that are freely connected to a life that does not do its best to improve upon and maintain the quality of it. The goal is to live and die in a manner that allows each person’s generation to gradually naturally systematically become stronger smarter healthier happier better off physically mentally financially possibly spiritually than the previous generation versus what we have today. Which is the most overfed, undernourished, soft, lazy, out of shape, overworked, and underpaid with dirty low-paying jobs sexual failure sexual criminals people in existence more so here in America than many other parts of the world. Keep in mind sexual crimes are classified as the weakest form of criminal conduct. Today’s America has a president that is a combination of those two worst-case scenarios. So if you support that type of lifestyle what kind of spiritual kickback you think you are entitled to for encouraging supporting a sexual failure that aligns himself with sexual criminals. And you might want to take that point to heart considering the simple logic if life is not free why the hell would death be any cheaper? it Is not the question your absent mind frail bodies may be able to wonder is who souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on the end results of dirty low-paying jobs which translates into a diminished quality of life from coast-to-coast globally. For the last hundred and 50 years or so the mass majority of the population has been living and dying off, yielding the worst spiritual kickback that has ever been manifested since the beginning of life. Again and that is primarily due to those dirty low-paying jobs. In layman’s terms you cannot promote life by doing business with material resources substances that have been scientifically classified and religiously verified as petrified death or worse. Which all stem from coal, oil, gas, and the chemical industry. Having said that even under the best case scenario amongst the best lifestyle which could be accomplished with clean high-paying jobs from coast-to-coast globally that improve upon and maintain the quality of our air, water, foods, landscapes, working and living environment, every day home products, habitats, and ecosystem. Even with the fundamentals being improved upon and maintained. We are still going to have a big percentage of those. Who live and die having only yielded the smallest percentage of a fraction of the true potential they were first born with. S.R.F.

  • why would you work out when you could do jujitsu then you see the teacher then you want that live and like 3 years later youre a purple belt you start a school then get a Mercedes then the family. working out is for idiots.

  • Remember, you’ve done it hundreds of times before, it’s just the lead up that’s changed, not the actual work. Once you’re in the zone, it’s all good and you’ll think ‘what was that about’. You’ll feel great once you’re done.

  • Never worked out joe.i actually physicaly work 6 days week 10 hrs a day!!most people don’t have the free time you have Joe you are way out of touch with reality.

  • How very very true! I can attest that I’ve skipped work outs before and usually regret it, but if I ignore all my justifications on why it would better not to work out, and actually go work out, I feel soooooo much better, both physically but maybe more importantly, psychologically! One “trick” is just to tell myself that I’m only going to do a light set for one muscle group but when I actually get in the gym, it’s like my whole perspective and motivation changes and I end up having a full workout and go home feeling pretty damn good about myself!

  • Hello Sean,
    Great content as usual. I just wish you could upload good stuff like this more often man!
    I particularly would like to know more of your perspective of muscle imbalances. I watched an old video of you talking about it but I think maybe you should make an updated version if you have more to say on this subject.

  • Really enjoying my metal changes on how I view my gym time but every time I get a groove for a few weeks I get this strain on the left of my neck that causes me to skip a few days. KILLING MY FLOW

  • I hate going to the gym. Not because of laziness, because it’s boring I prefer outdoor activities to stay fit. Lifting heavy objects is the most braindead activity one can do.

  • Been lifting since junior year of high school, now I just started running. My damn legs feel like they will fall apart every morning after 3.5 miles on the trail. But nothing feels better than after your done, and the weight falls.

  • Been feeling demotivated lately training and stumbled upon this video, honestly don’t know if it’ll help but great video, no over exaggerated voice or music, just real talk and straight to the point.

  • Weight training saved my health when I was a teenager. I was skinny yet prediabetic for over a year. Weight training brought my blood sugar back to normal levels, and I haven’t worried about it since.

  • The gym should be a place to improve yourself. Physically and mentally. But why is it when we look around the social media landscape we see many individuals struggling with eating disorders, body image issues and persistent setbacks in the gym?

    If your gym experience is tearing you apart instead of building a better you, we need to fix this.

  • I am very thankful for these last few vids. Not only have they been encouraging but have also been insightful. I have gotten into many hero worship issues, body dysmorphia, even eating disorders after watching you tubers and IGers. You have been helpful in moving beyond that and I am really trying to work towards workouts and the gym as community and for feeling good about myself and not simply a means to an end. The gym is a lifestyle for me but because I have better mental health and community due to the gym not in spite of it.

  • Omar,

    Time for a book club series. Iron culture has made it clear that you need some mates to geek out about books with.

    P.sGreat Video

    Thanks!!

  • I live in Egypt it’s cheap and I’m happy going to the gym daily for 1 or 1 and half hours daily having fun with my friends to build muslces, you can’t build muscles without gym unless you have all the callisthenics skills which takes 2 or 3 years to achieve. Everyone has his own goals but you can’t say gym is a waste of time if you enjoy that shit

  • So true! I had planned to workout after work today but the thought of working out after a long day and little sleep had me so little motivated. But I still went to the gym and when I got there my mindset flipped and I even hit a PR! So yeah, just do it basically haha

  • Gyms are very toxic place, narcisstic people all over the place…and so many useless machines, dumbbells are enough, both a couple of ones n now i train at home

  • I have to come back to this video at least once a week for the no nonsense breakdown of how my mental projection is not what the workout is really going to be like. It’s just a mental projection and 5 minutes into the workout I feel better.

  • Gym changed me and made me so much better,started lifting because i was mentally exhausted and it improved me so much,i may still not be skinny or ripped,because im exactly where i want,but i feel much better and look better than before

  • I started working-out a few years ago, now when I am about to get ready for a workout I try and convince myself not to do it, makes me smile every time.

  • Been going to the gym everyday since I signed up about 2 months ago. Worth every penny if you use it everyday. Paired with a near strict healthy diet and the results are much faster than when I was a lot younger. My diet back then was trash so I was kind of breaking even with gains, which was a waste of time so I kept yoyo-ing on and off the plan. But yeah if I had a local park like that, I’d definitely skip the gym fee and go there instead!

  • You don’t look good just because you work out ��
    I don’t understand why people torture themselves doing something they don’t like. Life’s too short for that.

  • How is it silly? Humans are not designed to work out. We are thin by nature. The issue is, humans live in a consumer society with too many options.

  • Who’s writing these titles, and why is that now two videos in a row proposed by Youtube with Joe Rogan where the verb “to work out” (with a space) is misspelled (written like the noun) in the title?

  • Not every day at the gym produces a stellar work out. Some days just getting there is the victory. I go along and go along without seeing results, then all of a sudden I realize that last months heavy is todays medium, and there are a couple of more (or heavier) plates on that bar, the scale is a little lighter, or that I’m counting to a slightly higher number on my sit ups.

    I was going to skip today and just lay around and watch TV till it’s time to leave for work. Thanks to your vid, and a commenter below, I’m packing my bag and heading out the door. How much I get done will certainly be better than what I was going to do, and it all adds up. Thanks and peace!

  • I know many people who had the mindset “oh we are all gonna die anyway, so i will eat what i want and not exercise because it’s hard work and makes me tired and stress”
    But the thing is, that choice they make now, they will pay for that attitude later on in life with illness, suffering and misery. A healthy long life is worth all the money in the world. With their attitude, they will most likely live with a lifetime of chronic illness that will lower their quality of life.

  • Physical activity for no purpose is what I don’t like…seeing people on a treadmill, seriously…my hamster does that way better than any human

  • Yeah..whiskey got to much out of the minds of rogen and the ginger guy at the end..and exercizing its great if you buy expensive food and not cheapy greasy food to energize your body..its time money and effort

  • THINK ��?. THAT, YOUR ( BODY ) IS A CAR ( �� ) THAT NEEDS, REGULAR, CHEEK UP!!!, TO WORK, PROPERLY.!!!!!. ONCE U UNDERSTAND, THIS?. [ IT WELL, WORK WELL ].!!!!!!!. ������……I PERFER, MARTIAL ARTS ����☯️����……

  • Tell that to all those lower class factory job workers who do 12 hour shifts and can barely stay awake after work Joe is forgetting that most people have at most 6 hours of leisure and then he expects them to work out like a house wife

  • I hate the process of working out with a passion, but I fell in love with the feeling of pushing myself past my limits. I feel like that’s weird lol

  • I don’t undeestand how you don’t make progress or don’t stick with it. Either you can’t see the long term benefits because you’re impatient or you just have no idea what you’re doing or why.

  • Great video, very timely for me. I discovered this morning that all i need to do is change my thinking when my body is resisting me.

  • Important thing about working out that people forget is that if you do it to “fix yourself” you should sort out your mental problems first. The general endorphin release that you usually get from working out will tend to MASK not HEAL your mental disorders and they will have more room to get bigger and more dangerous. All those people that claim that physical exercise was tremendous metal help for them are having serious mental issues that are just deferred to surface later. BEWARE of all those self-proclaimed “just work out” gurus.

  • My gym closed in March due to Covid. They billed me the day after they closed. They said, “If I keep paying, it can be future credit.” I agreed. Two more months go by and the gym’s still closed. I canceled asking for a refund cause they billed me three times. I was under no contract! They refuse to refund me! They said, “I agreed to pay when they were closed.” I advised them, “Paying was due to future credit had I remained a member. Since I don’t have a membership, my money should be returned. Keeping it is theft!” They told me, “Any mention of theft is slander! Also they stand behind not refunding me!” They acknowledge they billed me when the gym was closed! Since I agreed to be billed, it’s free money!

  • Working out in my eyes is a amazing form of art. I went from 270lbs to 189, and because of that i decided to finally put pictures up on insta to at least make one person inspired to start moving. I wana influence people to do it, help a brotha out my insta is happyrafy

  • You quote Jordan and then go “DO IT ALL AT ONCE”. In some cases and with some ppl that will just mean it never gets done because its just too much…

  • love this so much. I believed if I was fit then I would be loved, I instead learnt to love myself more through the journey, and as soon as I let go of the image I naturally balanced to my natural weight. I’ve recently found being in tune with my body and what it needs serves me better in what I look feel like and it helps me love my body just as it is ��

  • I know exactIy what you mean! I start to get bummed when I’m getting sore and the weight is getting daunting to face. In the past, I have tended to take a break for a while…a longer while than I originally intended!:-P I now say, I’ll just do an easy workout. Once I’m there, I get back on track.

  • Not so sure that it works for anybody. I think there’re people for everything and some people just don’t like to exercise. That’s fine. But yes, most of them probably just need a little push.

  • use to weigh 133kg, worked to 84 kg and i swear up and down my life is at least 5 times better i’ve lived more in the last 2 years then i did in the 26 years before that.

  • Honestly I think a lot of adults with the lack of motivation to work out come from white collar jobs where you sit down all day in front of a computer screen or something similar. My friends from college all have this problem as they’ve moved into the tech industry as cubicle workers when they should’ve found something more hands on or blue collar if they wanted to stop working out. I became a brewer and that’s a job that’ll keep you in shape even if you do literally nothing with the rest of your time exercise wise, but I still work out on the side because of the physical and mental stimulation that I get from my job. These poor saps are dealing with depression and lack of motivation because they didn’t plan on getting older and put into jobs that don’t push the body for jack (or the mind in most cases). When 40 hours out of your week are spent sitting and you don’t see a physical outcome in your job, I think it sets up your mind for failure. So for anyone in their early 20’s looking to move into a tech position where you’ll be dealing with coding and programming all damn day, plan on balancing yourself from the get go. This goes for the opposite in blue collar jobs as wellfind something to exercise your mind if you aren’t using your brain enough at work. “Why put off today what you can do today?”

  • idk why people say it’s about their looks that’s why they work out.
    It’s good for your physical and mental health. that’s the main reason one should do it and honestly it’s the only reason I’m still doing it.
    2 years now I worked my ass off 40 min each and every day (no excuses, never!) and my metabolism says “no” to any sicnificant changes on the outside. and I even have a phycial demanding job since then.
    It’s just the way it is.

  • Well the good news is I can start working out again once we move next month where theres free gym access. Bad news is Covid so they arent letting people use it. I do move around a lot at work, but some weight is piling on for sure. I just cant wait until they let us work out! I can’t do jogging or much outside atm because my body does really bad in heat and I get heat exhaustion easily

  • That Thing thatsa preventing you from doing stuff, in germany we call it “Innerer Schweinehund” translates to “In ones self routed PigDog”

  • The rest of us have shit to do. Rogan injected steroids into his body to look like that. Or did he invent a workout with Barry Bonds to magically increase the size of your skull?

  • it’s just hard for me, everyone struggles losing weight but it’s the complete opposite for me.. and don’t be one of those people who say “consume more calories than you lose” because it’s not that easy… i literally put myself into a food coma everytime i have enough food in front of me and i never gain ANYTHING literally at all, it honestly makes 0 sense..

  • aint nothin lame about learnin to dance, I went 30 years winging it…… An ex gf dragged me to lessons, now I get asked to dance with different women almost anytime i go out. Women love that sht fellas.

  • Well Omar, this is probably one of your better videos I’ve seen in awhile. You’ve been around for a long time on YouTube so some of your videos are getting repetitive, but you still come out with gems like this one! This video was motivational for me, and you spoke 100% truth. Thanks Br’Omar!

  • I’m 15 years old and have been going to the gym for around 2 years and last week I messed up my rips and spine badly. I can’t go to the gym and train now for a while and it sucks. I’m obsessed with it, it’s one of the only things that make me happy and I don’t really know how to enjoy life without training. Can anyone give me some advice I need it.

  • This is the same before a fight. The thought of it defeats people before they start, though when you start the fight the discomfort you imagined is nowhere near as bad as you thought it will be. You have an advantage here if you learn this trick with fighting because most opponents are defeating themselves with the belief it’s going to be bad for them. Like with lifting the weights, your body just automatically does what it needs to do. All you have to do is apply the mental factor and in the case of fighting it’s to remain calm and surgical. Let your opponent give it the mouth and the rage, he’s just projecting his fear of you. Be as laid back as you can, imagine what others are witnessing. Make it so they see a laid back guy making it look really easy.

  • spot on sean. i have had some of my best workouts on days when i am really down and literally dragging my feet while going to the gym.

  • for others, when people choose to vote for liberals while complaining the city/state where they live is a shithole because of liberal policies and still keep voting for those liberals, “it’s silly”

  • Out of all the teachings one may learn here during life is that martial arts is by far the most beneficial, for it can be applied to every other aspect naturally and effortlessly. Martial arts is the fastest and most efficient way for one to learn their bodies capabilities and limitations therefore being able to become physically fit, mentally sound and spiritually balanced allowing them to express physical freedom. Which is key for one to start living up to the pleasure, potential and responsibility of femininity and masculinity at this level of body awareness one naturally actually has a self-control, discipline, loyalty, devotion, appreciation, respect, confidence and joyful determination to validate, confirm and signify that the are being true towards love honor and the creation of life. If one makes a conscious choice to live in accordance to validating love to the degree I mentioned it allows the subconscious to systematically coincide with the soul spirit mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world in the most efficient way that is humanly possible. Thus yielding the best spiritual kickback for one’s efforts accomplishments experiences. Anything less is feebleminded physically inadequate and submissive subservient which it doesn’t get any worse than that living and dying in that mannerism. For when one lives and dies having neglected the physical freedom they have had available all throughout their life a results in them being recognized internally and externally for all eternity throughout existence as spiritually sexually suppressed. Case closed mercy forgiveness spiritual welfare are not changing those facts protecting carrying compensating any wining souls or spirits that are freely connected to a life that does not do its best to improve upon and maintain the quality of it. You might want to take that point to Heart considering if life is not free why the hell would death be any cheaper it’s not. So don’t miss the deadline on becoming physically fit mentally sound spiritually balanced being able to express physical freedom. Obviously high sources of nutrition will greatly increase one’s physical freedom + formal education maybe some hands-on experience with the most extreme situations nursing homes daycare centers critical care units birthing centers. Group homes, jails, prisons, Army,, Navy Marine core, special forces, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, sports and fitness facilities. Whether you believe are not as secondary to the fact that each and every moment is spiritually accounted for. Obviously if you believe in a higher power form of God goddest then you would want to serve him the best life possible. The sad truth is thanks to a diminished quality of life from coast-to-coast globally people have been living dying for the last hundred 50 years or so to a diminished quality of life resulting in the worst spiritual kickback that has ever been manifested throughout the history of mankind. This diminished quality of life is primarily do to dirty low-paying jobs that come from outdated power sources inferior materials poisonous toxic substances pesticides chemicals that never change their killing composition which means whether it is a solid liquid burnt off into our airways atmosphere as a vapor is always going to be poisonous debilitating deadly to the body. At the same time polluting corrupting devastating to mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world. There is no profit to be made in the demise of the planet even far worse is the spiritual kickback that is manifested from inhaling petrified death 24 seven drinking using contaminated water using wearing the materials that are made cheap and inferior something like corrosive to the body that’s what happens when you conduct business to the lowest standards of quality which is primarily America China India. In layman’s terms You cannot promote life by doing business with material, resources and substances that have been scientifically classified religiously verified as petrified death or worse which all stem from coal, oil, gas and the chemical industry. It’s not all gloom and doom. For we have the man/woman power to offset maybe even fully compensate all the damage that has been caused from dirty low-paying jobs. And that is with clean high paying jobs from coast-to-coast that improve upon and maintain the quality of our air water foods landscapes working living environment every day home products habitat ecosystem plus the lifestyle I mentioned. The goal is to live in a manner that allows each persons generation to naturally and gradually become stronger smarter healthier happier better off physically mentally financially possibly spiritually then the previous generation. Sad to say even undergoes best case scenario circumstances there is still going to be a percentage of people who freely live and die having only used the smallest percentage of a fraction of the true potential of the were first born with. Now I wish and pray for my soul and spirit to be held spiritually accountable to the statements I proclaim to the way of living personally and professionally. I guarantee you never see hear another body man/ woman in power persons of legal religious authority leaders ever freely validate the statements they proclaim with that level of certainty. One reason they don’t naturally instinctively have the best interest of the majority of the population’s needs at Heart another reason could be they come from a breed of cowards or have a lifestyle that suggests, confirms and validates them as being absent-minded frail body. Is quite possible to be a combination of those two worst-case scenarios. For one is genetic hereditary and the other is a generic learned behavior. Either way it is physically mentally spiritually useless to freely live and die in such a low-quality manner. Especially if that ignorance, stupidity, weakness and desperation stems from being soft, lazy, out of shape, over fed, undernourished, overworked and underpaid with the dirty low-paying job. S.R.F

  • Next video should be ” Why I wear every single lifting gear available to lift. That is: a belt, some kind of squat pants, straps, knee sleeves etc.. Because I just cant lift raw and I have a weak core. Omar Isuf the weak

  • How do you put yourself to sleep when your super busy and stressed out? This is something I have trouble with is getting enough sleep and going to sleep especially when I have too many projects to work on and after workout I can’t sleep at all even though I’m dead ass tired it’s affects my mood. I’ve tried melatonin and it doesn’t work my migraine medicine is an ssri antidepressant that would make me sleep but lately it doesn’t work. Are there other tricks I don’t want to go on sedatives and sleeping pills but thinking of asking the dr for it if I really can’t sleep are there other tricks before it comes to that?

  • One hour a day man, 5 6 days a week and eating in moderation with a bit of a treat day every now and again. Its not hard and you stay in shape.

  • I’m just going to say this is fucking stupid coming from a man thats been on roids for like 2 decades, and spends probably $500,000 a year on supplements and doctors, and has the ability to PAY FOR FUCKING STEM CELLS WHEN HE GETS INJURED. Seriously, the indignation in this guy is fucking ridiculous.

  • I once read a book, there it says that there is a way to manipulate newbie gains even though we are not in the state of newbie gains. ie by not eating protein at all for 8 days, then on day 9 we eat directly with surplus calories and protein is very high, then all the protein we eat will be absorbed by the muscles and we will experience a significant gains. (during fasting protein we keep workout as usual). Is that true?

  • Great topic to cover Omar. The struggle is real and NOBODY really likes to discuss these things. I can always count on you to keep it real and fresh. Thank ya

  • I used to go to a gym and never ended up going went about 8 times i prefer exercising outside running and cycling saves me money i have like 5 or 6 gym machines at my house and still would only use them when the weather is so bad so maybe would use it 2 or 3 months a year where i live in the uk

  • He is correct I can testify to this ������ wasted my £38 gym fee all along. Some movement you may need certain machine to perform

  • It’s refreshing to hear someone with no BS! So tired of those who are fake and talk about great genetics but they behind the scenes ROID TAKEN FOOLS! All natural a long long process with no miracles. This guy explains it right and all who train should subscribe! I’d mention the other YouTube account I follow for fitness which is quality as well but don’t like to take away from this account! Great work and keep it up

  • Working out is hard as hell. I do it every day and it does get easier the more you do it. With that being said it’s very hard at the beginning

  • Yeah if you want to continue looking the exact same sure don’t join a gym be like every other CrossFit person if that’s what you like it that’s what your taste but you can’t just tell people it’s a waste of money because there are quite a few people that make progress if they want to join they want to join but it’s not a waste of money far from it especially when you find a really good job and yes you can work it out side you can do everything everywhere but sometimes the equipment that I need is at a gym

  • I’m 22 and was low bar squatting 405 for 8 and maxed at around 465 and decided to stop squatting and switch to deadlifts because my knees were getting absolutely wrecked. I would be sitting and just have flare ups of burning knee pain. Wasn’t worth squatting if my knees were gonna be fucked. I squatted with a fairly wide stance and with knee sleeves and still had knee pain following workouts

  • Well some of us just don’t have the time or the resources to do it. I work 7 days a week. Have for the last 2 years. Only time off is during vacation period. Usually during the 4th of July. 12 hours mon sat. 8 on sunday. Rest of the time I’m with my family. Young children require alot of time obviously. My older kids are always doing their sport etc. All these things plus a few more that i won’t mention. I simply don’t have the time. I live in a pretty rural area. No gyms within 60 miles of here. Not that I could go to start with. Life just wont allow for it for some ppl. Yes I’m overweight. Not much I can do about it though at this point. I gave up sodas and try to eat healthy when i can. Some of us fatties are too busy to bother though.

  • Some good old Stoic philosophy right here, Its always like that for me when a workout just feels extra hard some days. I just systematically start going through the sets and in a short moment 90 minutes have passed and i have plowed through the whole workout.

  • 8 Judgment that is not physically, mentally, and spiritually beneficial is useless therefore has no true value. Without judgment progress cannot be made. For no one can express or receive love or any other desired emotion in its entirety if the don’t know themselves. We are all not created equal however we all have a equal obligation to living up to the pleasure, potential, and responsibility of femininity and masculinity. So do your best to become physically fit, mentally sound, and spiritually balanced being able to express physical freedom. Which can be accomplished through clean air, water, fitness, and high sources of nutrition organic and non-genetically modified would be best. Plus formal education or real hands-on experience. When one learns the body’s capabilities and limitations by fully engaging with all their senses to their extreme limits in the most efficient way that is humanly possible. The subconscious then begins to naturally subconsciously systematically coincide with the mind-body souls spirit mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world and the most efficient way that is humanly possible. Thus yielding

    the best spiritual kickback for one’s efforts accomplishments experiences. You might want to take these points to heart

    Considering the simple logic if life is not free, why the hell would death be any cheaper? It’s not the question the common, basic, average, normal man or woman may be able to wonder is what is the spiritual cost to one’s own soul and spirit for freely living dying off having only used the smallest percentage of a fraction of the true potential they are first born with. Not to add insult to injury for the last hundred and 50 years or so the mass majority of the population has been living and dying yielding the worst spiritual kickback that has ever been manifested since the beginning of life only getting worse. And that has nothing to do with everybodys so-called charming personality and everything to do with the standards of quality pertaining to our air, water, foods, landscapes, working/living environment, every day home products, habitats, and ecosystems. Which is ignorant beyond retarded (no offense to any disabled people.) When you consider for the last 490 years Give or take we have had the manpower woman influence or vice versa to have created clean high paying jobs from coast-to-coast globally that would improve upon and maintain the quality of our life in such a manner.

    That the mass majority of the population from coast-to-coast globally would naturally, gradually, and systematically start becoming stronger, smarter, healthier, happier, better off physically, mentally, and financially possibly spiritually then the previous generation. Now I would like to resurrect the wish and prayer I made prior to my 8th birthday which was to be held spiritually accountable to the statements I proclaim to the way I’m living personally and professionally. I guarantee you never see or hear another body, man or woman in power, persons of legal, religious authority, or leaders ever freely validate the statements they proclaim with that level of certainty one reason they don’t have the best interest of the majority of the population’s needs at heart a another reason could be they cum from a bloodline of cowards or simply have a lifestyle that suggests, confirms, and validates them as being feebleminded physically inadequate submissive subservient which it doesn’t get any worse than that. One is genetically inherited and the other is a simple generic learned behavior. Quite possible to be a combination of these worst-case scenarios nonetheless either way it is physically, mentally, and spiritually useless to freely live and die in such a low quality manner.

    Especially if that ignorant stupidity, weak, lonely desperation stems from being soft, lazy, out of shape, over fed, undernourished, overworked, and underpaid with a dirty low-paying job that comes from outdated power sources, inferior materials, poisonous, toxic substances, pesticides, and chemicals that never change their killing composition. Which means simpletons whether it is a solid, liquid, or burnt off into our airways atmosphere as a vapor it is always going to be poisonous, debilitating, and deadly to the body at the same time polluting, corrupting, and devastating to mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world. There is no cash profit to be made in the demise of the planet. Thanks to those dirty low-paying jobs we are in the mist of environmental financial global collapse. The good news souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on the end results of those dirty low-paying jobs. The even better news that the common, basic, average, normal man woman may be able to comprehend his souls and spirits have been are being managed, directed, maintained, and implemented with all the disease, sickness, illness, pain, suffering, injury, abuse, neglect, hunger, addiction, sadness, anger, and hyperaggressive violence. That has been allowed to occur manifesting throughout the history of mankind into what it is today thanks to people like Donald Trump who have the false belief if the mass majority of the population is at their worst they will feel less afraid inferior to the true potentials of love, honor, and the creation of life. Here’s the deal you’re either part of the world solutions or exacerbating the planets problems there is no safe in between. Either way no matter how you look at it each and every moment of every life has been spiritually accounted for. S.R.F.

  • You just confused the shit out of injured people wondering if they should have “grit” and persevere, doing what they can in the gym, or if everyone who told them that lifting too much weight would injure them was correct and they’re being stupid, rather than resilient, and maybe they should be doing callisthenics or swimming or whatever instead of lifting. I can guarantee they’ve been given conflicting advice from doctors and knowledgeable strength coaches/pros/fellow lifters, just to make things even more confusing.

  • I hated running, I kept cramping up and my legs kept telling me to stop. But I ran as much as I could for about a month because I was motivated to improve. I’m currently in my second month of running and I’ve seen a major improvement in my cardio and my ability to go long distances without a break. The human body is fascinating and its a shame most people aren’t willing to explore their limits.

  • Man this video just gave me a whole lot of reasons to continue hitting the gym, i have been doing this sh!t for like 7 months now and i got a few results but i was “this” close to quitting, i was looking for inspiration and all that fake stuff online but what i actually needed was a reason, thanx Zuby bro i left a like and subscribe, you da best!

  • Must admit I enjoy the gym, I joined 3 months ago and go 4 times a week and always have a 20 minute swim afterwards. Only problem I have is, I have put on 7lbs in weight, when really, I could do with losing 28lbs of weight. There must be a moral in this story somewhere! Cheers Alan

  • It’s true that once I get moving and into the 3rd set of my first leg exercise, I realize that the workout isn’t as bad as I thought while I was sitting at home, having trouble getting moving. Sure, it’s still work but it’s not something that I can’t handle. Like my mother used to say, “Once you get movin’, you’ll feel better.”

  • Thank you I’ve been having this issue for a long time Getting to work out consistently I’ve been having some struggles in my life when it comes to the Workout I saw it like another Struggle It’s true What you said looking at it another way, Not To see it as a overwhelming Task that I have to complete. Great channel you have A new subscriber

  • I am a big gym-goer. It’s my refuge and escape from reality but I agree partially. True, do not join a gym if you are not ready to keep up with the commitment. You’ll be throwing away money. However, my approach is a little different because I bodybuild and wouldn’t see the results without progressive overload. You can’t do that with body weight, for a while yes but long term? No. If you want to seriously tone up and build some muscle join a gym and commit. If you simply want to keep relatively fit then don’t. Workout at home or outdoors. I do all of that as well but the gym is where the magic happens for me. Lol. Thumbs up*

  • I just hit legs + cardio today after work despite having a cold, inflamed gum, wrist injury, 2 hours of sleep, headache, rainy day In fact, I haven’t missed a single day since January 2nd this year!:)

  • I don’t really care what anyone does. I just have a problem with people who have a problem with what I do. If you don’t want to exercise, cool. Keep the speeches about how it doesn’t matter and that it won’t make me live longer and how i can still catch cancer or get hit by a bus to yourself. I don’t do this to live longer. I do it to live better for however much time I do have here. Anytime someone finds out I work out or I try to eat right they have a story about their 98 year old aunt who smoked cigarettes and ate pork everyday until the day they died. I always think to myself, “Maybe they could have lived to 120.” They never mention the uncle who smoked, drank and ate bad who passed at 50.

  • I’ve recently fallen out of love with the gym. When I think back to when I first started it was THE most important thing. If I missed a meal or workout I would get so annoyed and actually a little bit angry.

    But starting a new career and having my focus shifted. I found that I just didn’t care as much anymore. Believe it or not there are more important things than the gym.

    However, that’s not to say that having a healthy, active lifestyle isn’t important. I just took 2 weeks completely off from the gym. And tbh, I actually felt pretty shitty from not working out. I think part of the reason I fell out of love with the gym is because my main focus wasn’t training, so I started slipping. Rather than making gains I was losing them. But you have to find a balance between your other goals and aspirations, and the self-love that the gym actually gives you.

    When you’re at the gym you’re taking time to solely work on yourself, and improve yourself.

  • Started daily runs/body weight exercise along with 20:4 intermittent fasting 7 days ago. I’ve lost 10 pounds, in 7 days, it magic to me.

  • great video sean. nice to see how much clearer your vids got over the years, you really know how to bring the message structurally. also, do you meditate? if yes, tell me more about that.

  • Needed this today. Wasn’t in the mood to lift… But forced myself to the gym because I figured when I started moving I’d get into it. Did 3 or 4 sets and just decided my head wasn’t in it. Maybe I needed an extra rest day.

    Got home… Watched this.. Got my sh.t together and buckled down and did what I had to do. One rep at a time.

    Now I feel fantastic.

  • The mental game and psychology; using it to our advantage. Thanks! I’m dieting and there’s a big mental component to it, also. For example, completing daily goals is said to be more motivating than a distant end-goal, such as final weight. I have missed my final weight, but they are typically just too unrealistic, the goal.

  • A little mind trick I use on these types of days is I tell myself I’ll just go to the gym and have a light workout like a 5 or 6 RPE. But then once I get there and warmed up, Im all in for max effort. Works every time.

  • As a guy in the Canadian Army, I totally agree with this whenever it comes to an upcoming training exercise. About a week in advance I’ll always stress about it but once I’m there with my buddies, it’s fine.

  • Excellent advice. That apprehension of the entire workout can be daunting. I myself, when facing those moments. I just tell myself to just commit to those first few sets or exercises and tell myself that I don’t have to do the entire workout. I can do a shortened version.

    A partial workout is better than none at all. But what usually ends up happening, I get more and more motivated to complete my entire workout as I get closer and closer to the end.

  • Damn this is me. I don’t even watch tv anymore because all I do during my free time is workout, run with my dog, and do house chores/errands when I’m not at work. I rather go workout on a Friday night than go get drunk with my friends or go out to eat. I haven’t been to a restaurant to eat out in 2 years because it’s hard for me to track my macros and all the restaurants in my town are unhealthy restaurants. You know what? It’s better than being a lazy fatass is my justification. Most of the people in my town are either overweight, fat, or obese though

  • Classic training tends to propose certain pain today (training) to pursue a hypothetical future pleasure (physiological goal). From a psychological point of view this approach is contrary to the basis of motivation and that is why, except in cases where the subject has a strong personal motivation (on which one can only partially interact), most of the people who undertake continuous physical activity cannot maintain this commitment for long. Excellent video that takes into consideration a very important and current issue and that clearly contributes to breaking down the dominant theory “that pain prevails over motivation”. Thanks for the video. Brava��

  • Sand bags, cinderblocks, car parts, two by fours wrapped in chains, bricks in bags, couches, beds, an even laundry hamper bags make good weights, but if ya want to be inside that crazy gym nut culture then hope ya find one with good people

  • I basically avoided going to the gym for a year due to severe depression, most counter intuitive thing I could have done I know, I just said what’s the fucking point. I got back into it late fall 2019 and was making my gains back, I put up 225 for 8 reps on the bench which isn’t impressive for most but it blew my mind that I did it. Then corona hit and my gyms been closed since mid march:( I got into cardio and some calisthenics like push ups and pull ups but it’s just not the same man. I’m going to find a solution to lift by the end of the week and never fucking stop, lifting literally lifted my depression more than any medication could.

  • Omar goes deep with truth, sensitivity and goodwill at out come the trolls. Wishing everyone training that is satisfying, fun and productive however you define it.

  • Damn, man. Great video, great message. Turning this into my daily before-leaving-for-the-gym video. Great to watch when the motivation tank is starting to run empty. ��

  • My dad worked out his whole life. He’s suffering severe arthritis. My mom never did any exercise her whole life except knitting, She’s in perfect shape and not sore at all, but can no longer knit because of arthritis. Both are 82.

  • Thank you for Your inspirational words, I agree with all you said. From a man who had hand surgery almost a year ago and let it get the better of him. I will try and regain the mindset that you have just reminded me of and who knows I might be able to surpass my previous achievements thanks for the reminder. Peace!✌

  • Always helpful info Sean! I do this on some small scale subconsciously every time I force myself to go to the gym. Usually I’m nervous about being around people but like you said once you’re there and in the zone it’s just another regular day. Thank you:)

  • This analogy is so true, I almost alway felt glad about going for that exercise/workout session when before hesitated doing at first thinking maybe a little tired or lack of enthusiasm.

  • Hey guys i know its not a popular opinion, but what if u genuinely just don’t enjoy working out? I really do not enjoy it, i do however do it because i hate being out of shape but still i really do not enjoy it. Why is this so hard to accept (according to most comments i see)

  • I struggle with this everyday because I walk over 10 miles a day at work & constantly moving. CT Fletcher has a video called the war within. Its really helped me to force myself to not miss workouts. Everyday I have a war within myself to go to the gym or relax after work. Thanks for the video

  • Great advice as always. This can be applied to anything you do in your life. Work, school, business, and relationships. Always be live in the present and do what you can at this moment.
