There are essentially 2 training environments when it comes to training your body: 1) Gym and 2) Home.
The environment you train in is extremely important for your results because the right environment can enable you to push yourself that extra amount needed to see muscle gains.
The right environment for you depends on the things below:
- Lack of motivation to train hard. “I simply can’t get motivated to train hard and complete my training sessions.”
- Lack of time to hit the gym. “I have so many things to do so hitting the gym is impossible.”
- Being embarrassed of performing exercises in front of others.
If you’re embarrassed about exercising, your best bet is to train at home or in a secluded place because it enables you to practice by yourself and then you can start going to the gym later once you feel comfortable in your own skin.
If you lack the time to hit the gym (even after cutting out bullshit such as watching the TV), then your only option is to train at home.
If you lack motivation to train hard, I suggest the gym, especially a gym that is full of people that inspire you.
When you’re in the gym, you will want to train harder to look good in front of these people and that’s actually a good thing as long as you keep you exercise technique tight and follow the instructions in your training plan.
Either way, whether you train at home or at the gym doesn’t matter as much as having some music to train to.
I personally never train without music that pumps me up.
A training session with music vs. one without music is like the difference between night and day!
Music makes me “forget about the pain of exercise” and I can train a lot harder and longer.
Therefore, I suggest that you make a good music playlist every week for your workouts and put on your headphones because it can make a massive difference in your training.
