most common errors in the gym part two
on from part one last
week I am going to introduce to you some smaller but equally common
failings in the gym.
you are a regular gym member have a look to see if you are guilty
of these common errors. I can certainly testify to making every
single one of these myself in years gone by and hence am desperate
to educate everyone about how they too can double, triple or quadruple
the results they get from the gym.

ask you to consider my lifestyle
course, where I can teach you exactly how to get the results
you deserve. A further five common errors I see (and made myself):
Spending too long on sit up type exercises.
we want to lose that fat on our stomach, but no, you cannot do a
hundred sit ups and watch it disappear. To lose fat you must eat
right for your metabolic type, perform all four areas of exercise
and put in place other key aspects. Each of these is covered in
my courses, hence they are so successful. I apologize about breaking
the news to you, but another set on that abdominal machine will
simply waste your time with little benefits on actually losing weight.
Not doing free weights.
benefits of free weights are unrivalled. They can help you increase
bone density, co-ordination, strength, tone and many health issues.
These benefits come from the free weights and not from resistance
machines. This is why many people do not maximize the effect the
gym can have on their life. Everyone on my courses develops the
confidence to do free weights and harness the amazing benefits these
Not engaging the core during exercises.
weight exercises challenge the core muscles
amongst others. This is why they are so beneficial. It is vital
however that you actively contract
these muscles during the exercises. This will greatly increase
the safety of each exercise and also the effectiveness.
Not warming up correctly
of the first exercise issues I teach all my clients is the power
of active stretching. This tool in itself can often completely
clear up muscle and joint pain. The traditional warm up of going
a little easier for 5 minutes or doing a static stretch is outdated
and less effective than doing a full active stretching routine.
An active stretch is a movement where you take your body part to
the point of comfortable stretch. Each repetition you will see further
progress in flexibility. At the end of the movements you will be
warmed up and loose for exercise.
Not training your legs
The amount of people who I meet who do not train their legs is staggering.
If you want to be healthy your legs and core are the foundation
of all movement. To increase muscle
size or lose weight
your need to alter the hormonal environment inside to get the results
you want on the outside. It is total body, leg based exercises,
e.g. squats, lunges etc that produces the results. People complain
they are too hard, I would draw you back to point five in
Part one to counteract this.
If you are a making these mistakes I would urge you to stand up
and make a change. It is such a waste to see people trying hard
to exercise and get results, yet fail because they did not receive
adequate coaching and motivation.
