Lost ambition, have you ever lost yours?
Well guys i know this is gonna sound like im being a pussy, and maybe i am, but i have lost my ambition to lift. This has been going on for about 5 or 6 months now, partial workouts, skipped days, etc. My last workout was last tuesday, which was back day. I did feel pretty good that day i had a great workout, but for some reason im just not into the game anymore and today marks my 6th full day of not hitting the weights. I know i know, some of you will say just do it, but it's not that easy when you heart is not into it.

Just watch a PUMPING IRON video or find a picture of a body that you want yours to look like. Inspiration......
Usually once I get a girlfriend I also lose interest in working out. I spend too much time with the girl that I skip workouts and such. VERY NOT GOOD

Try taking a full two weeks off, or cut back to 3 days a week. That really helps for me. AFter a while i feel so disgusted with myself i HAVE to get back in there.

I usually take anywhere from two weeks to a month off or on a limited work out Schedule in December. I have found it really rejuvinates me and my desire to get back in the gym hard.

I agree with Rickson......take a dash of time off(completely off), go somewhere, do something different, your desire will return and youll be a new man in the gym......good luck..........Cntndr

Alot of the times I will feel like that when at the end of my off cycle,so I usually take off a week before i go on my next cycle and then I'm ready. Then sometimes I'll just watch wrestling for a little while and seeing some of those big mfo's get's me back motivated.

A break from the whole scene might be a good thing for you to try BM. How about a training partner?

Good advice from everyone above...a break is sometimes just what you need.
I've been there before. For me, it got to the point where i was less happy with a lot of stuff. I got fed up with the way things were going and made a lot of changes in my life. Fixing the things that were wrong in my life gave me new motivation to push myself in the gym...to try to better myself.
Don't know if that helps, but it's what i've been through. Good luck bro -

Having a training partner that's equally motivated is a big help. Ever since I moved to FW, I've had to be pretty much self-motivated. I've found people to work out with, but it pales in comparison to having someone like clockworks to workout with who is equally obsessive-compulsive about lifting and getting big.

Get back in the gym you PUSSY! Is that enough inspiration?
All kidding aside bro, I think you should follow the guys advice above....time totally away from lifting maybe the answer.
You'll be back at it soon....hang in there!

09-30-2003, 05:50 PM #16

I lost my ambition once, and decided to take a month off. After being away from the strict diet and workout regimen for a month I came back with a renewed enthusiasm. Your body will remember, and you will be right back to where you were in a couple of weeks. Also, when I came back my size exploded for the next month. Haven't looked back since.
