Recently I’ve been feeling way less than motivated in the gym. Over the summer I’ve pretty much been winging it and making up my workouts as I went along. I knew what body parts I’d be working that day, but I made up the actual workout as I went along.
This worked up until about two weeks ago when I hurt my back after falling down the stairs. I had to “go easy” on myself, which I don’t really handle well. I think I only rested that day and never let my back fully recover. Therefore all of my workouts have been subpar for fear of further injuring myself (instead of just taking a few days off to make sure it heals properly.)
As I’m typing this, I know the answer to my question: take a few days off. Luckily I will be road tripping back home next week so I will have some down time to heal!
I’m interested to know what you guys do when you’re in a workout slump. Are there any structured workout plans you recommend? Any suggestions to help me motivate myself are greatly appreciated 🙂
