Everyone wants to get a healthy and fit body. For this particular goal, they take plenty of healthy diets and along with that a good workout routine at the gym. Apart from that one trainer at the gym, there is further tons of information available online that speak about many other ways of achieving the same goal. This overload of information basically creates confusion for the person, and he/she ends up making mistakes in their fitness routine rather than achieving their targets. This article is going to talk about some of those mistakes that trainers make.
#1 Lack of specificity
If you want to achieve something, then you have to do the exact exercise to achieve it. If it is the stamina that you want to build, then you should practice fast running. If you want to improve your cardiovascular endurance, then you should be paying more attention to doing activities that stress the cardio system. You need first to decide which particular goal you want to achieve and then work specifically to achieve that.
#2 Lack of intensity
Achieving a certain body goal is not an easy task, and it will not be done with half-hearted efforts made in some days for every week. The work requires constant and regular effort with a great deal of intensity as well. You have to push yourself beyond your limit because only that will help you reach that potential. If you are squatting for three times a week, then you need to increase it to maybe seven times. Powering up your workout routine is what is actually going to save you from a fitness failure.
#3 Skipping weights when you are trying to lose fat
When it is fat that you are trying to lose then you must be aware of the general formula; more focus on a diet and around 20 percent focus on exercise. You need to come up with a good diet plan along with few minutes of daily workout. You step on the weighing machine afterward to see how much you have achieved. However, you should probably be paying more attention to doing resistance training because that will bring far more benefits and will leave you in a better shape as well. Going for the common rule basically, puts your body in an undesirable shape in return for less fat.
#4 Too much mindless cardio
The whole hype about “cardio” should be brought down. People have started giving more time to that low intensity three miles running and losing the chance to avail resistance training benefits. Scale weight should not be the only motive, and in that attempt, cardio should not be prioritized over other exercises.
#5 Inadequate rest
After a long day of usual office work, normal chores and fitness routine, you can’t just give your body few hours of sleep and carry on the next day with the same routine. Proper exercise will only be rewarded if you give your body the relaxing time that it requires because in that time actual results will be produced.
