Where do you get your workout inspiration?

Where do you get your workout inspiration?


During this unprecedented time in history, many people are worried about where their next meal is going to come from or how they are going to pay their bills. However, some are worried about losing their gains. Gains are defined as: “a lifestyle that many take to put on muscle and get into shape.”

Since gyms have been closed for weeks, many individuals don’t have the equipment to stay in or get into shape. Many people have to resort to in-home workout videos to keep their gains going. I haven’t touched a bench in a month, but every time I die in Call of Duty, that’s 10 push-ups. Who said video games aren’t a workout?

Nonetheless, finding the inspiration to work out before quarantine was hard for some people. But now it’s even harder because some individuals just think that since they can’t go to the gym, they can’t work out. WRONG. No matter where, when, or how, you can always get your gains. Inspiration comes within. Gains don’t wait for you, you have to go and get those gains.

Take it from Instagram influencer Robert Frank: “Swole is the goal, size is the prize. It’s gains-o-clock m*********s, let’s goooooo!”

This is a man who lives in the gym and inspires people on Instagram to get into the gym and get HUGE.

“I know these home workouts suck. But if we have push-ups and dips to keep us swole we are GONNA GET THROUGH IT BROS.” Another very inspirational quote from Robert Frank.

There are many BHS students who still have the inspiration to keep working out at home. Robbie Roeder lives in the gym; he can’t go three days without hitting the bench press. Roeder is also enlisted in the Marines, which means this man needs to be at peak physical fitness at all times. The gyms are closed, but that doesn’t stop Roeder; he has created a makeshift gym in his garage in order to keep his gains.

“I find the inspiration to work out during quarantine because I have future plans that require me to be in good physical condition, such as the Marine Corps. Also, it’s just part of my daily routine, so if I don’t work out, my whole day is off,” Roeder said.

It doesn’t matter what’s going on in the real world for Roeder and many other people. They continue to work out and better themselves. They find the inspiration to better themselves. It’s not about being inspired to work out, it’s about having the willpower to understand that it’s something that needs to be done.

I work out every day because when this ends I don’t want to come out of quarantine looking small and scrawny. I want to come out of quarantine looking like a whole house. My inspiration comes from within because feeling and looking healthy is something everyone should strive towards.

Who wants to come out of quarantine looking like a spaghetti noodle when you can come out of quarantine looking like a BEAST?
