MUST READ: Bodybuilding Diet Myths
The truth is that life is an endless learning process. You may be encouraged to learn from your own mistakes, but you lose time, gain many frustrations and in worst case abandon the idea of training at all.
Wouldn’t it be much better to learn from others mistakes and experiences and just implement them in your program? Walk into the world of dieting and working out for a great body with the right foot and remove the following errors right from the game start.
1. Don’t have a Concrete Goal and the Lack of Commitment to it:
To take your body to another level you need a strong plan. The sooner you start planning your workout and diet routines, the sooner you will begin acting toward your Bodybuilding Goals. Once you have a concrete plan, establish a training schedule and what concretely you will do during each training session.
Whether it will be a three times per week training or twice, clearly set out group muscles to work out and types of exercises. Regardless of what you choose, just make sure you visualize your week by week training and diet as well.
“A goal without a plan is just a wish”.
Have a plan, schedule it in details, commit to it and soon you get visible results.
2. You Try to Totally Change your Lifestyle:
Suddenly remove all bad foods you were so long addicted too is not gonna work for a long time. Several weeks later you may find yourself returning to old habits. And this is because these habits are ingrained in your lifestyle and are very hard to totally get rid of them.
Don’t act like this. Give your body time to switch to another style of eating and acting. Start not with taking away all bad foods, but by adding one by one good one in your diet. Be sincere about Nutrition, Slowly introduce natural protein and veggies foods in your diet.
Begin to go to sleep early and be more consistent with your exercise program. Depriving has a more destructive influence on human mindset, while slowly additions cause us to feel more trustful in ourselves.
3. The Workout Program you Follow is too Much for You:
You may want amazing transformation in shortest time, but blindly following a workout program of popular celebrities is not gonna work at all. The reason is that many of these stars look good and work out for a living.
They do it for years, invest money and time. Their job is to look good, but you are totally wrong thinking that what works great for them, will bring the same results to you.
None of this. Sophisticated workout regimens are not better than basic training. If you have to search the internet or other resources to find out what your next exercises are and how to perform it properly- then it’s better to leave it and turn to the basic one.
The issue with too advanced training program is not only the lack of efficiency but also risks of injury because of bad technique.
4. Don’t Enjoy selected Training and Diet:
Strong motivation comes from enjoying what you do. If you don’t like exercising, don’t like eating some foods and do it just for the sake of reaching the Bodybuilding Goals – is better do not do it at all. Coming in the gym or training outside or at home is thought to help you release stress, not to gain more.
Pick up a less complicated exercise program and diet or the best will be to choose the one you can sustain and bring into your life for a long time ahead. How to find out which one you enjoy the most? Experimenting is one of the ways to do it.
5. Exaggerated Expectations
Keep your feet grounded in reality when setting Bodybuilding Goals. Our bodies have unique traits that react differently to the same stimulants. What worked great for someone, is not going to be as effective for you as well. Be aware of your individual characteristics when planning your transformation: body type, fat percentage, metabolism rates, life circumstances are just a few of the main points to take into account.
