Getting Ripped on a Financial Plateau.
Although your financial situation should not limit your workout plans on occasion it will get on the way. The motivation to keep up with your weekly or daily workouts sometimes becomes hard with limited financial resources, depending on where you are with your fitness journey. Getting that ripped body also requires constant dedication, which can be broken when you are faced with a long day at the office and all you want to do is lie on the bed and rest. If you hit this mental plateau, it is not easy getting back the motivation to constantly workout. Some simple solutions can be used to beat both the mental plateau and financial limitations.
One of the best options available when you are experiencing financial limitations or when you are on a mental plateau is setting up a home gym. In terms of hygiene, a home gym will prove to be a better option than a communal gym. On most occasions you will find that the gym operators do not clean up the machines after they have been used. You can either work out with dirty machines or you may have to clean them yourself before you start your session. This ends up wasting your workout time and also exposes you to conditions that are unhealthy. Every week you save a lot of time by not having to drive to the gym. Buying the first batch of equipment is not cheap in the beginning but in the long-run it proves to be a much cheaper option. What’s more, you can keep on adding barbells, treadmills and pull-up bars to your home gym. the motivation to workout will always be there when you have a free gym at home.
Another great solution to working out when you are on a financial plateau or do not have space to set up a gym at home is a makeshift workout. Even without setting up a home gym or visiting the local gym, there are ways to get that ripped body. Work out using any item available to you just like people did long ago when there were not gym machines available. A backpack filled with heavy items such as books can serve as a great weight for doing squats. Doing inverted push-ups on a staircase increases the angle just like doing pull ups from a tree branch. A good workout is about the basics of using your bodyweight and carrying heavy items like backpacks just like they do in army training. That’s one way of keeping fit on budget and keeping your motivation high.
