Next you can set up all of your stats so you can start monitoring your progress and watch yourself get stronger week after week. This means you don't have to take that notebook to the gym with you anymore.
Also on your profile you can set up all of your favorite workouts, videos, music, and so much more. You can even post your favorite Bodybuilding.com articles so when you want to read them and get that written kick in the butt, they are right there waiting for you. No more searching and wasting time.
All of your favorite forms of motivation are right there.
Next you can check in on the Bodyanswers section. This is kind of like an interview to get to know you better. You can answer whichever questions you like so people that are looking at your profile can get to know you better.
The Bodyblog is where you can post all of your nutrition, training, and other information you want to share with the world. Some folks use it as a log and others use it as an online diary.
Whatever you want to write about, go for it. You are the boss of your Bodyblog. If you see someone else's blog you like to read you can subscribe to it and get updated when a new entry is made.
Maybe you are a good writer and someone enjoys your entries. They can subscribe to you. Your Bodyblog can be a very important part of your account as it can be a constant source of motivation for yourself and others. If others read and want to share their opinions on your topic they can comment on your entry.
You can do the same thing if you find an interesting entry that you would like to share your thoughts about.
Proper Form Is Key to Success
Ok. I know it is a big step but posting photos for the world to see is a big step you should make to achieve your goals.
Knowing your photos are on your account and you can see them every day will make you want to improve that image and once you post the after photos, you can literally see how far you have come.
Seeing those photos will get you comments from many people as they love seeing someone improving and are not shy about giving praise.
Updating your progress and goals regularly also will serve as motivation for you. You can change your goals once you achieve them so you keep that drive alive. There is also the Fit Status that acts like a Bodyspace Twitter and you can update this as often as you want as long as it is less than 140 characters.
You can also post your daily routines with your Workout Tracker. Each exercise, set, rep, and weight used can be entered daily so you know how much stronger you are this month from last month.
It doesn't stop there. You can keep track of certain lifts and post your improvements on your profile so your friends can see you improved your bench by ten pounds or put twenty pounds on your squat.
Seeing those lines go up will psych you up next time you train.
Yes there is even more. There is a motivation level that goes from 1-10 and you can share how you are feeling at that moment. If it is low, your friends will start sending you messages to help you feel better and get motivated again. If it is high, they will see what you are doing and get more motivated themselves.
Everybody involved wins.
Now that we have covered what you can do on your Bodyspace to push yourself, let's talk about finding your motivational partners to push you. First, you can add friends by joining their "Fan Club".
This is simply a friend request to someone you know or someone you would like to get to know better. Likewise if they want to know you better they can join your Fan Club also. You can also comment on profiles and send private messages to each other to keep in touch.
If you have a lot of friends and it starts getting difficult to keep up with everyone, then you can go to your dashboard and see when your friends have posted updates and you can comment and check out what you like. Once you start getting more known this is a much easier way to see how everybody is doing.

These are fun to be a part of. You can join up to seven BodyGroups and be a part of a smaller circle of athletes with the same goals as you. There are Bodygroups that range from fat loss to muscle building to complete transformation to motivation and all points in between.
You can either find them yourself of friends can find you and send you an invite. As you get more involved you can eventually form your own group and invite friends to join yours. Knowing members of your group are supporting you can be a big motivating factor in between sets.
This is a big source of inspiration in two ways. First you can find those members of Bodyspace that inspire you and announce it by adding them as a "Member That Inspires You". You can add up to 10 members to this list and anytime you need inspired you can check out that person's profile and get all the motivation you would ever need.
Second, if you are keeping your Bodyspace account updated regularly there is a good chance someone is going to join and see your profile as a source of motivation and he or she will add YOU as a member that inspires him or her. How cool is that? Someone is literally telling the world you inspire them.
If that doesn't make you work harder to achieve your goals then nothing will.
