10 Hardcore Bodybuilding Quotes to Motivate you in the Gym

10 Hardcore Bodybuilding Quotes to Motivate you in the Gym

Want to maximize your bodybuilding potential? Staying motivated is your number one priority.

Motivation comes naturally to some people. But most of us feel uninspired and deflated from time to time. Here are a few tips and quotes to get you feeling pumped up and ready to face the world head on.

Why is motivation so important for bodybuilders?

Bodybuilding requires 100% of your focus. If any part of you is lacking you will not achieve your best.

It requires rigorous training schedules, strict diets and mental determination to reach your goals. WIll power is tested daily by temptations of junk food and less demanding activities.

Using quotations can help to motivate you. They can get you through a bad week, inspire you to overcome setbacks and negativity, and refocus you on your goals.

How should I use motivational quotes?

  • Leave handwritten quotes around the house or office on scraps of paper or post it notes. You can also leave them in books, plaster them all over your computer screen, and download motivational desktop wallpapers.
  • Buy ready-made posters or fridge magnets with quotes on.
  • Get inspiring quotations sent direct to your smartphone. There are free versions for Apple and Android. Lots of people share their quotes on Facebook or Twitter too.

"Winners do what they fear". This is appropriate sometimes but perhaps quite a risky thing for, say, an impressionable teenage boy to read,.

All good, especially Phil heath, but I don't like the Kai Greene quote? I'm afraid in reality, victory IS defined by WINNING!
