5 Ways Life Gets In The Way of Workouts


You want to workout. You have a goal. But sometimes life gets in the way. Anything can keep you from going to the gym. But there’s always solutions.




5 Ways Life Gets In The Way of Workouts

And what to do about it.


One: You get injured – This is a big one. An injury can keep you from the gym for a while. But you have to get past it. Work on what you can and set a goal. Set a goal to be achieve by a certain date. The ability to run 5 miles non stop, do 100 pushups, do 50 pullups, you name it. Set a goal and a time. 6 months? A year? Set it and Achieve it.



Two: You got a new job – This is easy. Find the buff guy. The athlete. The gym rat. Find the person that works out. Make friends with them, and join them. Having a gym buddy will encourage you to work out and make you accountable.



Three: New girlfriendShe will take up a lot of your time. Why not take that time with her by being active. Not necessarily going to the gym. Go hiking with her. Go on bike rides. Play a sport. Just be active.



Four: You Move – As soon as you arrive at your new home, find and join the nearest gym. If you make it your first priority, you will be subconsciously committed to going.



Five: You have a baby – There’s no excuse. Of course kids will take up a lot of time. But they don’t take all your time. Work out less. 30 minutes instead of an hour. But make it more intense. Sprints instead of jogging. Supersets with minimal resting time instead of regular sets. High intensity workouts. Short but intense.



You have no excuse to miss workouts.

Perfect Body


As a man, you have to have a the perfect body type. A great body Don’t have one yet? Work on it That’s one surefire way to get respect.


But besides the respect aspect, a great body has to be able to perform to take on the any challenge life throws your way. And I’m not just talking about fighting.


A great body have 3 things. Endurance, Strength, and Flexibility. Make sure your workouts include a healthy dose of each of these to guarantee results.


The Perfect Body Type




Long Distance Runner


If you only focus on endurance, you will have the body of a sprinter or long distance runner. You need to have endurance so you don’t get tired doing anything. Whether it’s working a physical job, playing with your kids, going on hikes, or just living life in general; you need to have endurance.


Workout: Run, treadmill, walk, swim, ride a bike, play basketball or any other sport, whatever you choose just make sure you are constantly moving at a higher heart rate than normal for an extended period of time in order to get cardio exercise. Not only does this help your endurance but it will help keep your heart healthy and help you lose weight.






If you only focus on strength, you will have the body of a bodybuilder. As a man you need to be strong. You must be able to defend yourself and your family in any situation. And you must be able to physically do things like moving heavy objects, or opening a jar for your woman.


Workout: No question about it you have to work out with weights. Don’t waste your time on assisted machines. Be a man and work out with weights. Not strong enough yet? Oh well! Start with small weights and work your way up. Don’t be ashamed for making gains. Work out with weights to build muscle and spike your metabolism. This will keep your body and your bones strong.






There’s no way around this! If you just work out your strength and endurance, you will most likely be as stiff as a board. Most men don’t work on their flexibility because they think it’s gay. They imagine things like yoga (which is totally effective by the way), which they think only women should do. However, having a kid I noticed that there are many things a kid can do that us as grown men should be able to do. We should be able to move freely. And the only way to do that is to work on our flexibility.


Workout: Im not going to pretend the be and expert on flexibility. I do yoga on occasion which really helps and I recommend. Other than that, make sure you stretch before and after your workouts. This improves your performance and reduces the risk of injury.


Want to take it a step further, I recently purchased a program from movement coach, and I must say WOW! I can definitely see results. Another great (albeit) more popular movement coach is Ido Portal.


Can’t afford a movement coach or their program, this workout by Victor Pride is also a great one. Check it out.


That being said, I’m working on having the perfect body type that incorporates all 3 of these aspects. Endurance, Strength, and Flexibility. I don’t want to look like a long distance runner (lacking stregnth and muscle definition), I don’t want to look like a bodybuilder (lacking endurance and flexibility), and I don’t just want to be flexible (like a woman).


Who has a perfect body? Fighters! Look at the sport of MMA. Most fighters have effective bodies. They are strong, can go a hard 5 rounds, and are flexible enough in their submission attempts.


I noticed their body types are fit. They have muscle definition. The have abs. They have big arms. The have big shoulders. They have big chests. They don’t have a big back. They don’t necessarily care about being big and buff. They want to be able to perform.


As a man, Perfection has to be the goal.

Why You Should Work Out... With Weights


Don’t ask stupid questions! Everyone knows the benefits of working out, but people make excuses. Stop it. Stop making excuses. Have more respect for yourself. Im going to give you a few examples of why you should work out. And make no mistake about it, you’ve heard this all before! I know you already know this. So let’s kick your butt into gear.


Why You Should Work Out… With Weights


1- You will be strong! Everyone wants to be strong. Everyone wants to feel strong. You never leave the gym or finish a workout feeling weak. Maybe a little tired, but not weak. If you are just beginning to work out, there’s no better feeling than that next-day post workout soreness. You can feel yourself getting stronger from the very beginning. When your physical strength grows, your mental strength grows. You feel like you can take on the world.
2- You wont be so lazy. You will naturally be more active. Something happens to your body when you do workouts you didn’t think you could do, run distances you didn’t think you could run, lift weights you didn’t think you could lift. It brings out this burst of energy that just stays with you. Suddenly, your life changes. You will find yourself feeling lazy when you’re not active or working out. When before you were satisfied just eating and watching t.v. all night, and reaching for that cup of coffee to get through the day, you will now find yourself wanting to be up and getting shit done. So get through that period of adjustment. Pick up some weights, go for a run, and soon won’t want to turn on that T.V.
3- You will be healthier. Geez. Do you need any more reasons to work out? After training for some time, you will find yourself getting sick less often, if at all. Your immune system will be stronger than ever.
4- Discipline. This is the one most people do not like and often fail at. Most people aren’t disciplined enough to follow a workout schedule to the end, often giving up at the first sign of struggle. Don’t be soft. Don’t be weak. Things that are worth it are never easy. It takes dedication, pain, sacrifice, and most of all, hard work.
5- You will have better posture. There’s something about posture that screams to the world “I am a winner!” or “I’m not a winner!” Sitting for hours at home or at work at your desk job, which I don’t recommend having, is not good for your back. Slouching all day leads to slouching while out and about. When you’re walking around hunched over, you look weak. Working out will help you walk upright, as if you have a purpose, which you should. As if you are ready to take on the world, which you are. So get to it.

6- You’ll have a good time. Of course there’s a period of adjustment in the beginning when working out will seem like a chore, but once that’s over, you will find you can’t wait to work out. Now working out at home is fine, but if you really want to turn it up a notch, the gym is where it’s really at. Even on those days you don’t feel like working out, as soon as you step foot in the gym, you will find this smile come across your face and this energy will flow through your body making you feel like you’re in for a good time. I can’t tell you what causes that feeling, but it breaks through all limitations. Then it becomes fun.
7- Last but not least, You will look good. Obviously you will burn fat and gain muscle. Along with proper diet, you will get shredded. But you Must include weights. If you just do cardio, you will not look toned, just skinny with no definition. Who do you think gets more girls, the strong, buff guy, or the skinny no muscle guy? Chris Evans from Captain America, or Edward from Twilight? Magazines always have guys with 6 packs and big muscles. Weights are the only way to get them.


Let’s look good guys.


Till Next Time.
