If you are working out but not losing weight – it’s likely not because your genetics are, somehow, unique. It’s more likely that you are making one or several of the biggest 10 gym training mistakes.
It’s true that you can lose weight without exercise – but, just as well, you can exercise and not lose weight. So your training needs to be approached and planned the right way to properly complement your diet. And it really isn’t rocket science or anything that requires some enormous willpower or anything else out of the ordinary. The rules of the game are simple – and avoiding the 10 gym training mistakes below is even simpler if you take some time to identify them.
This is a complete waste of time – exercise should be structured and help you reach a specific goal. Depending on that goal, the specifics may vary, but there at least should be a training protocol. Of course, you can (and should) still engage in unstructured physical activity for fun (outdoor team games, hiking, climbing, swimming, etc.), but if you are going to the gym to meet a specific goal, make sure you do everything right to reach it.
Properly structured exercise has several benefits:
- You eliminate unnecessary time-wasters and reduce your gym time to the minimum, while getting more results;
- You actually reach your goals (and faster, too!) – whether those are to lose weight, gain strength or get ripped;
- And, as an added benefit, you do both while ensuring maximum safety – which, in turn, ensures consistent progress with no sudden throw backs and loss of traction due to unexpected injury.
So let’s discuss how to exercise properly by looking at the following 10 gym training mistakes people make in the gym that you can easily avoid.
