    Anyone feel the same? It's mainly because my numbers aren't going up and i've had to deload significantly since starting a new programme

    I'm feeling really unmotivated too at the moment so I feel your pain but some great advice I was given was to remember all the reasons you started in the first place and also try and enjoy the journey even if you haven't hit the numbers you're after yet

    Force yourself to go, your lifts will go up. Look at your diet and recovery

    Depends how advanced you are, how fat and diet and routine etc.

    They'll recover to some degree if you've had a bit of an unexplainedloss in strength

    Look up youtube workout motivation videos. Remember that you can't expect to look toned in one day. Think about the end result

    not greatly advance, not fat (120lb at 5'3) diet is eating just above bmr (or i can't lose weight, about 500cal deficit) routine is lyle mcdonald generic (although it is a bulking routine apprarantly, i just want high reps)

    As cheesy as it sounds I like to watch motivational movies or watch videos of the people I look up too.

    Funnily enough I find The Dark Knight Rises motivating, I think because he starts from nothing as trains everyday to eventually make it at the end..Aswell as Pain & Gain. but I feel like that's just for me personally
