OK It happends for me all the time.
I start strenght training. In the beginning it's ok... I start slowly not to impact to much my motivation and get injury.. It's quite easy, motivation skyrockets, and first week usually goes without extra stress.
I have diary to track the exercises.... it should keep me on the track, but sooner or later my motivation falls down. I thought about it much and i suppose it might be lack of progress and difficulty to put more iron. Of course on the days I feel more fatigued it get worse - less pounds, less sets, less repetition, or combination of those three things. I begin to struggle with workouts, feel often fatigued, to much stressed or even depressed (especially if I skip exercise) and then after 2-4 weeks it's over...
Please advice me what to do. I know that without constantly pushing the limits and consistence (throwing out the diary, not increase the levels of workouts, working out once a week) I will stay in the same place and don't get muscles I desire. Is strenght training so much painfull and making me fatigued (I didn't have so great problems with turning myself from coach potato to half-marathoner) ???
Do you have idea how to keep fun in strenght training and still keep progress? Do you have the same? How you pump up motivation and take off pressure?
