Weight lifting is hard work; therefore, a weightlifter must be motivated to meet the challenge. One of the simplest ways to keep motivated is to keep a record of improvement. Keeping detailed record weights lifted and repetitions achieved will allow you to visually see improvements on paper. Keeping a record is also important for purposes of progression and to know how much weight and how many repetitions to use day to day. Introducing variety into the workout also helps to maintain a level of motivation. This may be limited somewhat by the facility and available equipment, but this can be overcome by imagination. The muscle does not know if fancy equipment is being used or not; it only knows if it is working hard.
