If you’re consistent with an active lifestyle, you are probably no stranger to reaching the point where your body is telling you that it can’t go one more step.
Finding the motivation to keep going is a battle we all face.
Ask yourself on what motivates you, look for online sources, working out in groups, setting goals, looking at other people whom are better than you, are all great ways many of you to push yourselves.
Some people weighed in on their personal ambitions to push themselves out of the rut.
Aubrey Bruner recently finished a workout at Ironclad Crossfit in Destin, to honor a friend killed in action, Army Staff Sgt. Alex Viola. Aubrey never even dreamed that she could do a workout, but since it’s Alex’s 30th birthday, she had the push to do it.
The workout was 30 repetitions each of cleans, pull-ups, snatches, toes-to-bar, sumo deadlift high pull, box jumps, back squats, and over the bar burpees.
Bruner said the hardest part was finishing 30 snatches at 95-pounds.
Bruner didn’t stop. She trudged through all 240 repetitions, completing the workout in just under an hour.
If you find yourself in a rut, dig deep and find something to keep you going. Sometimes, all it takes is thinking of that other person and putting yourself in their shoes.
