    Having read a similar thread about a particular inspirational video, I wondered what helps you guys get motivated when you come home from school or work and you really don't want to train.

    Pacino's speech from Any Given Sunday is always a good one for me, but what does everybody else watch?

    I like watching competition videos. Usually my own, friend's or classmates. That usually makes me start speeding towards the dojo.

    Watching Benedikt Magnusson work his magic always makes me feel like a "puny human", and inspires me to try to become just a tiny bit less puny.
