Pushing through a tough workout is hard, sure, but the most difficult part of a maintaining a workout routine is staying motivated.
Best-selling fitness author Tom Venuto wrote a post on his blog titled, “Top 10 Ways for Regular People To Get Motivated.” For the post, Venuto gathered advice on how to get/stay motivated from several surveys he published. He narrowed them down to this list:
Track your progress, your food and your training in a journal.
Look at pictures of yourself.
