Top 5 mistakes everyone makes in the gym
Mistakes you'll be making as a new gym goer;
- Believing more is more;
You don't have to exercise for 2 hours at the gym ever day to get results. Your body needs some recovery time to heal. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate activity every day with a couple of higher intensity workouts thrown in there a week.
- Not warming up;
To effectively urn fat your body needs to warm up. Get the blood pumping by walking and building up into a slow jog and working up slowly to a run.
- Groundhog workouts;
As with food, you cant expect to do the same thing every day and get continuous results. Keep your body guessing and step up your intensity or change it up altogether.
- Too much too soon;
It can be tempting to really go for it in your first few days of fitness, but all you're doing is tiring your body out and cause yourself an injury! Try 2 or 3 days of moderate exercise and build up from there.
- Doing activities you don't enjoy;
Want to know the most common killer of motivation? Boredom! You'll never stick to something you're sick of in a matter of days, choose wisely.
