Personally, I am in a slump. Seriously having trouble getting myself to go out in the cold and get my workouts in. I am trying challenges, I am putting on workout clothes, I just can't get myself to do it. So here are the three tips I am doing to make myself more accountable and try to get myself back into this workout habit that I seem to have lost.
1. Schedule your time for workouts
2. Lay your clothes out the night or day before, pack them in a bag, but get them ready
3. Pick your workout, have a plan

A little story that happened to me a few months ago and how I felt about it afterwards.
I have been putting off talking about this for a few reasons, but people are making similar posts about similar issues happening in the gym, so I wanted to share my thoughts.
In essence...Be nice to each other...otherwise what's the point?
1. Heavy dumbbell or kettlebell
2. Lighter or adjustable dumbbell or kettlebell
3. Some sort of box or step
