Default motivation for success in bodybuilding

For some people motivation comes natural, but for others, it is what separates the true bodybuilders from the "posers." Bodybuilding is a sport that requires 110 percent of your focus, if one part is lacking then your whole plan will become a failure. If you are wanting to improve your motivation or would just like to learn why it is important, then keep reading.

Being motivated is very important in bodybuilding, only the motivated will survive and that is no lie. How do you keep from eating junk food while preparing for a contest? How do you keep training day after day while only seeing little to no improvement with your body? If you are serious about achieving your fitness goals, being motivated is the only way of obtaining them.

Small, steady steps will lead to progression, which will lead to results, which will increase motivation, which will again increase results, which in turn will lead to long-term change.

I have found out what the best motivation that can spark your bodybuilding efforts up is an idol, somebody you see in real life (and not necessarily on TV) that has a good body, you say to yourself. "man, I wish I looked like that", this can motivate you into trying harder and staying focused on a specific goal. Even you yourself can be an idol for yourself, I know that sounds strange, but after making significant gains from bodybuilding after awhile, that alone can motivate you in keep on doing your best!

Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably one of my biggest inspirations for many bodybuilders, he has probably done the best job in my opinion of getting people to start bodybuilding.

yours in training

haha, sure.

He is IMO the greatest bodybuilder ever. To me, he is the most astetically(sp) pleasing bb ever.

But im not a fan of him as a person. The whole, take steroids for years, become a political figure, and then decide you are against them..... only a douche can describe this person.

i'd love to right a real response, a much longer one, but i have to go eat dinner.....
