If you are informed before starting your first workout program in the gym, you can refrain from making the most common fitness mistakes.
The summer is just around the corner and you want to work out your body. You want to achieve results in a short period of time. Be careful, most women without some advice from a personal trainer are going to fail from the start.
Fitness Mistakes To Avoid
These fitness mistakes affect your results or even worse, damage your health. The following tips are addressed to women and men without experience in the gym.
1. Change Your Routine
The greatest mistake that women make in the gym is doing the same exercises every session. Avoid it.
I know that on your first day in the gym you tested several systems and you picked favorites. If you want to use the same systems every day, you’re wrong. Why? For the simple reason that the muscles need time to recover.
If you push the same muscle groups every day, soon you will not be able to train at all for a whole week.
I recommend a minimum of two days of rest for each muscle group. As a beginner, you need two days of rest per week.
2. Try Weight Lifting
Mixt your cardio with weight lifting exercises. You will not lose your feminine body, don’t be afraid.
I know you want to get rid of unsightly fat as quickly as possible. But try to reduce intense cardio workouts to 3-4 days a week, 30-40 minutes.
Weight training accelerates fat burning, increases flexibility, protects joints, lowers the risk of osteoporosis, and improves bone density!
3. Work All Your Muscles
Do not abuse abdominal exercises! We all know that the main reason women go to the gym is to get rid of the belly. And the solution to this problem is to do exercises for the abdomen. If you abuse these exercises for a flat belly you will not get it. You’ll not get rid of the excess fat but will shape the muscles underneath. You should combine cardio with a healthy diet and exercise.
4. Drink Water And Sweat
Don’t forget to drink water! Drink as much as you can. Take a big bottle full of water with you. It eliminates toxins, protects joints, boosts metabolism, reduces fatigue, and prevents drowsiness.
5. No Makeup Or Perfume
A gym should be a public place where people go to work out their bodies, not to admire them. Don’t use your perfume in the gym. You’ll annoy everyone with a strong perfume.
The same is true with wearing excessive make-up. Don’t follow this practice and focus on your muscle gains only.
Every gym-goer should take into consideration these fitness mistakes. It doesn’t matter your fitness goal, you can’t wear makeup at the gym.
So keep in mind these tips if you’re thinking to start your gym journey.
