The main mistakes of newcomers to training

The main mistakes of newcomers to training

If you’re just learning to practice, you’re likely to make mistakes. This article contains information on what is best NOT to do when starting training. I will try to list the most common.

Poor execution technique

Poor execution technique

Your first task is to master the correct technique for performing exercises. So, at first, you did not rush! Carefully read/study the technique and evaluate to do everything.

This is the case when it is better to do less, but better. By devoting more time to it at the beginning, you will not only save yourself injuries, but you will also not lose efficiency. After all, if you do the exercises incorrectly, the targeted muscles are not included in the work, which means the results will be better.

Lack of systematic

Lack of systematic

Consistency is one of the key elements of success. DIY training is certainly better than nothing, but it’s best not to expect serious results from this approach.
Sometimes you have a well thought out training plan, in which the load and, very importantly, the rest days are well thought out.

Safe training

Safe training

You don’t have to train every day. The body needs time to recover. In “shock mode”, you will probably have some time, more until the end, not sure that you will achieve the desired effect, the more you will even lose the desire to practice.

“Career” for big weights

"Career" for big weights

It is more common in men, but girls sometimes also try to take heavier dumbbells, thinking that the effect will be better. As I wrote above, the most important thing is the technique of execution. If you don’t have the power to do the exercises properly with the bigger halters, don’t worry.

Lots of isolation exercises

Lots of isolation exercises

All exercises are divided into basic and isolated. The basics are those in which several muscles and joints are involved. For example, squats. Accordingly, in an isolation exercise, one muscle and one joint are worked.

It is important to use different exercises and combine them correctly. This approach makes it possible to create a beautiful and harmonious silhouette.

Ignore any muscle group

Ignore any muscle group

Often in training they focus on one muscle group, completely ignoring the rest. Someone shakes their butt every day, and someone relentlessly performs exercises on the press. These workouts:

  • do not allow the muscles to recover properly
  • over time they lead to an imbalance in the body between what you train and what you ignore
  • and most importantly – they do not allow the figure to look harmonious

Now you are “insured” against errors.
