Hope you had a great and productive week. Here are
6 workout ideas you’re going to want to avoid.
1- Lacking a plan- “Failing to prepare is preparing to fail”
having a plan allows you to train harder and smarter. Ad
libbing isn’t a smart way to train and usually found in beginners.
Seek someone who knows how to plan workouts to your goals,
not there goals. There is a difference.
2- Neglecting body weight work- The strongest athletes
pound for pound are gymnasts. It also teaches you how to
move your body more effectively and intelligently.
3- Taking every set to failure- If you do everything to fatigue
you can limit gains, experience burnout or get injured. Take
no more than a few sets to failure. The rest stop before failing.
Failing every sets impairs recovery which is the most important
part of training.
4- Doing exercises you don’t understand or how to do it- Always
learn the movement of an exercise before doing or trying it in
person. Learning proper mechanics and why you’re doing it is
important. Focus on form over weight in the beginning.
5- Over working your push muscles, neglecting pull muscles-Over
working the anterior (front) side of the body can results in pain and
injuries. Use a 1 to 1 Pull to push reps and set ratio at the least to
off set these imbalances.
6-Doing too much isolated ab work- Sit ups and core work is effective
to a degree. Focus more on squats, dead lifts, carries, overhead pressing,
get ups, and kettle bell swings to work the core.
