I've been often asked by men : "When am I gonna get bigger? When am I going to see the results of my training ?" My one and only answer is simply to be patient. Patience is one of the most important things when it comes to training and if you're ready to wait, you'll most likely reach your goals more efficiently. Being stressed and rushing through your training is far from being the best idea. Seriously, you just wanna chill the heck out at the gym and do your sets like if you were in your own playground.
This is not a race.
Don't be too patient either
Yeah, I understand your weekend was awesome. Going out and blowing off steam is quite something you have to tell your friends and all about how fabulous it was, but there's no reason to miss any of your sets. There's no doubt your head is probably elsewhere when you're used to the movement. I mean, thinking about food and sex during your workout is normal (and can actually be beneficial for your hormones). I'm sure they can wait one or two hours before telling them, or you could just sync your sets between. Remember this, the first reason you are at the gym is to train. It needs discipline and consistency. This is why you should take everything away that could distract you from your goals.
Training is like farming
Growing muscles is just like growing plants, give them love and they will get as big as a watermelon. Well-- watermelons taste good but are way to big and filled with water (what you don't want for your biceps). So don't overload your plants with plenty of shit. Because yes they will grow big and fast, but shit will stay shit, am I right?
Practice will make you better, so don't be shy to do the same move a thousand times to get it perfectly. No matter how much time you take or how many people are staring at you, just do it the good way. Remember, they're probably just jealous about your great work ; that's it.
Every other day
Waiting for the right time to say the right words, waiting for dinner or a machine is totally the same. I mean, you have to be patient not only at the gym but in your everyday life also. There are no hurries you know. The only measure the human being can't afford is time. So don't worry, every single one of us is given time. Unless you're like the president of US, being anxious should be the last of your concerns. I actually have three jobs and work eight hours a day, seven days a week, but letting my workouts slide through my fingers is not an option.
And by the way... Did you know even Barack Obama trains multiple times weekly? Yeah, then no excuses.
