Training partner should not be someone that distracts you, the only time you should train with somebody is when you know the other person pushes you to do better and just gets on with it. Avoid having bad training partners and most importantly don’t be one of them. I personally love training with other people because there is always something new to learn and I’m more likely to try something new.
2.Performing the exercises wrong
Performing your exercises wrong is not only a bad way to get stronger but also it increases the chances of an injury, if you have a mirror USE IT! When you just assume you’re doing an exercise correctly you might find yourself having muscular imbalances in the future, just like I did and it took a while to get it sorted out. Bottom line is, you owe it to yourself to get the right technique into your training right from the beginning before you start packing on weight to your bar.
Consistency is the key and that goes to any area of your life. If you workout for 2 weeks and then you stop, you will never achieve results great enough to keep you motivated. Exercising on regular basis is proven to actually make you start eating healthier because you will not want all the hard work to go to waste. The first few weeks will be the hardest after you establish a habit you will not need so much will power to drag yourself into the gym. With only 1 or 2 sessions a week I promise that you will feel more energised, confident, reduce your stress levels & look better before you know it!
4.Commit and execute
Some people are committing to a workout and they quit after 30 minutes of being in the gym. I’m not saying you can’t get an excellent workout in 30 minutes. I’m talking about people that go there for 30 minutes and do 1 half hearted set every 5 minutes while talking to their mate on the phone. When you’re in the gym, you’re in the gym. Give it all you got!
