Stuck In A Rut!

Stuck In A Rut!



Being stuck in a Rut SUCKS!

We have all been there, it’s a part of training, but it sucks none the less!  Getting stuck in a rut SUCKS!

I tore my bicep about 3 weeks ago (Fluke accident during boxing/sparring) and ever since I just can’t seem to get back on track.  I find reasons to avoid the gym (and they aren’t reasons they are excuses lol).  So I am digging deep and trying to find the reasoning or motivation to at least get my butt into the gym!!

I feel that some of the reason I can’t get motivated is knowing that my training will be very limited due to my bicep rupture (I need 6-8 weeks of VERY light training to let it recover).  I can’t do much boxing or jiu jitsu, which sucks as I really enjoy those workouts.  However I could/should be hitting the gym and hitting stretching, legs, cardio etc.

I know what I SHOULD be doing, but doing that is a different story!

In the past I have always found that setting short term goals, or writing goals on paper is a great way to get motivated.  So today I am writing some goals for November.  They are

–          Get down to 185.  Currently 192 (7lbs seems like a lot but there is a lot of Halloween choc there that has to go ASAP Lol)

READ MORE  Sunday July 12

–          Hit the treadmill 5 days a week for 20 min interval sessions

–          Cut out all junk except for Friday Night (damn Halloween candies got me ruined lol)

–          Try to hit some yoga or stretching daily.

Pretty basic simple goals, but it’s better than nothing!

I would love to hear from people here how they have gotten out of a rut or any current goals people have.  Please post em up!

    I feel your pain Rob, with this hand injury I cant do many of the exercises I have been enjoying at the gym lately. I find rather than go light and take it easy i’m completely avoiding the muscle groups… Which ill kick myself in the ass for later.

    Goals:
    Get to 165 lbs. (Currently 175… Was 194)
    Dead lift: 315 (Currently 285)
    Get this hand healed as fast as possible…
    Get more good sleep.

    I feel the same way right now Rob. I injured my back at work 2 weeks ago & had to cut out Kickboxing & heavy workouts. I’m finding it hard to get motivated but worse is I’m find it hard to do exercises & stretches that won’t hurt my back even more.

    Goals:
    Get to 205lbs (Currently 220…was 255)
    Exercise at least 45mins-1Hour everyday
    Get by back healed so I can go back to Kickboxing (I really miss going)
