4 Training Mistakes to Avoid

Almost everyone tracks progress when working out at the gym. If you’re not making any for the last 6 months, there might be things that you are doing wrong.

So, it’s important to make a few changes for the simple reason that you will not make any progress for the next months if you don’t do it.

Keeping this in mind, here are 4 mistakes that you can watch out for:

#1: Using weights you can’t handle well

If you can’t handle certain weights, then it isn’t a good idea to increase the weightage. In fact, it’s better to cut down your weights by 10%, get your technique in place and then increase the weights after a month or two.

#2: Not squatting

Not only should you squat well but intensively as well as it not only benefits your thighs, glutes and lower back but also your entire body. Make sure you work on your squatting technique and you will benefits greatly from it. That said, either squat correctly or don’t squat at all.

#3: Not taking all precautions to prevent injury

Injury will halt progress completely. Without a doubt, correct exercise technique is integral to training especially if you are training hard. This also means picking the right exercises that suit your body. In fact, if your body hurts when doing a particular exercise, replace it with an easier one even if you’re using the right technique.

#4: Not doing the right exercises

As a rule, focus on building exercises as opposed to detail exercises. Compound exercises such as squats, deadlifts, leg and bench presses, rows, dips and chins are what you need to get good at before moving on the other types of exercises. The reason for this is because these exercises build big muscles.
