Halos lahat ata ng tao ang new year resolution ay magpapayat at magdiet, No wonder maraming tao sa gym ngayon. Pero I'm sure pakonti ng pakonti na rin ang mga tao sa gym paglipas ng panahon. Kasi yung iba sa umpisa lang at tatamarin na o pwede din pagsumakit na ang katawan nila ayaw na nila.
Minsan nakakainis na kasi madaming tao kaya naiisip ko na sa bahay na lang ako magwoworkout.
At isa sa mga pinoproblema ko lang ngayon ay wala na ako time magworkout because of work.
Nanghihinayang ako sa bayad ko sa gym monthly kasi di ako nakakapunta sa gym.
Kung pwede lang irefund yung binayad ko sa gym ay ginawa ko na.
So for now, I decided to build my own gym at home. Building a home gym has its advantages. For example you can watch tv shows with the volume adjusted to your liking, as well as the music.
For now, my original reason for training at home was to save time. I knew that training at home would allow me to spend more time to do other things. I can train when I want and how I want. If I want to train at 11:00 at night or on a holiday,, I can!
I can also set up my own equipment to do a giant set and not to worry about someone, invading my space.
Ang kinaiinisan ko sa gym, yung mga taong matagal gumamit ng equipment, at meron din yung lahat ng equipment pupuntahan niya lahat at pagagamit ka, sasabihin niya di pa siya tapos. Kaya masarap talaga magkaroon ng sarili mong gym sa bahay.
Another reason I continue to train at home are because I can concentrate far better and I am more focused. Therefore my workouts are much more intense.
Training at home without a training partner or spotter takes more concentration, focus and ingenuity than it does in a gym with a partner or a spotter.
But I have to admit, I miss some of my friends who still train in a commercialized gym. I had a lot of fun and socializing and joking around from time to time, but the bottom line is the reason I train is to be fit and healthy and look good.
Although there are times that the gym atmosphere helped in the motivation but real and lasting motivation comes from within.
For personal motivation I like to set goals and then develop a plan to achieve those goals. Goals setting is the single most motivational factor in my training. Having a good plan really helps me stay focused.
For a total body workout, there is nothing that can beat a real and fully equipped gym.
But for now, I'm using dumbells for my workout and I would like to share my exercise program
