1.You don’t have a goal
As it is said, when you don’t know where you are going, every path will take you there! I’ve noticed that even in life, when a person doesn’t have a goal, he/she usually can’t achieve the satisfaction and happiness he/she is looking for! What happens is that every day you start with something new, at the beginning you are full of enthusiasm and then you quit in front of the first obstacle you face!
It is the same with workouts! When you don’t know what you want to achieve, even the smallest obstacle, has the strength to break you down, because you don’t have a reason, that could give you strength to move forward, towards your goal every single day… to search for new ways and methods to achieve it!
The goal could be a general one or a more specific goal. For example, I work out in order to be healthy and athletic. And by this I mean to have an athletic appearance, as well as the ability to control my body and endure different physical activities! From that goal on, I have smaller goals- like handstand walking, but it is derived from my MAIN goal!
