Heyo, got an article for you today on avoiding some common muscle building mistakes people like you and I make from time to time…
You’ve always wanted to bulk up on those muscles and you think you’re ready to ‘start’. Start you must but do check against these five commonly committed muscle building mistakes first!
Muscle Mistake #1
Going in without a proper plan – I’m sure you’ve heard of the phrase ‘failing to plan means planning to fail’ and this is so very true with building muscles! Going in without a proper workout plan and without a proper diet is like going into battle without a war plan. You’ll face almost certain doom and failure. So remember to plan, plan and plan some more.
Muscle Mistake #2
Same old same old – what this means is that you continue doing your set of repetitions over and over again. Week in week out you’re doing the same old repetitions without increasing your workload. You need to work and challenge your muscles! Progressively increase your workload and your muscles will thank you for that in the long run.
Muscle Mistake #3
Missing out on scheduled workouts – once you’ve got a plan then stick to it! Missing out on only just 1 scheduled workout is going to have a multiplier effect and it will disrupt your momentum a lot. Each workout missed is a step backwards. If you can miss this workout, you can miss the next and the next and the next…
Muscle Mistake #4
Being overly obsessed with one muscle part – Its’ fine to have a favorite muscle part and work on that but you’ll be making a huge huge mistake if you work only on your favorite (or best) muscle parts and neglect the weaker ones because then you’ll run the risk of being disproportionate in size.
Muscle Mistake #5
Not being mentally prepared – Be prepared to pump the irons and not see results for weeks. You’ve got to be strong mentally to take the physical torture and the sudden changes and shocks your body will experience from the sudden jolt. You got to stay strong mentally and keep plugging at it. One tip is to buy some books that will strengthen you mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
