Yesterday I received a question from our friend who says he lacks the motivation to train Brazilian Jiu-jitsu some nights.
He says that a lot of times after a long day of work he struggles to get the energy together to workout and he’s wondering what I do to keep myself motivated.
In the video I share that I’ve never really needed motivation to workout. Whether it’s Brazilian Jiujitsu or lifting. I’ve never required motivation to train.
And this is because it makes me feel so good, and I don’t need to be motivated to feel good.
We do all sorts of things in our life that make us feel good. Eat, sleep, take pills, etc. And it requires little motivation most of the time to do them.
With exercise it’s no different. It makes me feel amazing after I’m done.
Even if I have a terrible training session or feel weaker than normal. I always feel good after the training is over.
I also share some details about a cool book I’m reading right now that explains all the chemicals that release in the brain and the physiological responses associated with exercise.
I mention the book in the video and you can check it out here.

If you’re struggling with motivation. Discipline is helpful. But enjoying what you’re doing and knowing that it’s going to make you feel better is always helpful.
