In this entry I would like to take some time to discuss
various things that I see that may be preventing you from achieving your
goals. There are many common mistakes that gym-goers make and I am hoping
that maybe if you make such mistakes you can learn to prevent such mistakes
as a result of this entry. Let's dive In.
The first mistake I would like to discuss is
time between sets. If you watch gym-goers, especially in public gyms, it is
a very common phenomenon to see them do a set, and then take forever before
they do their next set. They'll check their Instagram, check their email,
etc. Ideally, you want between 30 seconds and a minute and a half rest time
in between sets. Don't let your heart rate sink too much, and stay focused.
The next mistake that I see is that a lot of
gym-goers work out for way too long. If your workout is longer than an hour,
I am willing to bet that you are not working out efficiently. If your
intensity is high enough, and your rest periods are short enough, you should
not be able to last longer than an hour in the gym nor should you. Keep the
intensity high, and your goal is to perform a workout intense enough that
with after an hour you are ready to call it quits.
Finally, how often do you see people in a gym
always do the same routine. They come in, they grab a treadmill, or they
grab the bench press, and go through the same workout day in day out week
in, week out. Big surprise, they never change, they always look the same. It
is very important to always change your routine and keep your body guessing.
Always change up your sets, exercises, you name it. You need to always
switch things up and keep your body guessing. Never fall into a routine of
always doing the same thing.
Hopefully you are not making the mistakes that I
detailed here and if you are hopefully this entry helps you become aware of
the mistakes that you are making. As always if you have any questions feel
free to reach us anytime, and I wish you all the best of health.
