What not to do in the gym?
For the frequent mistakes of beginners and advanced at the gym
Things that should not be done in the gym can be noticed both in beginners and intermediate and advanced. It is good to avoid specific moments to get the most out of the workout.
The chaos of the beginner
If you do not know what to do when to do it, and how to do it better, starting with taking an instructor and avoiding chaos and confusion.

The middle-advanced ego
From personal experience, we will say that the ego is a good thing, but sometimes it can be very insidious - when we neglect the signals of the body (if we are tired) and instead we want to satisfy our ego with weights for which the body (muscles, tendons) is not yet ready.
Our advice to avoid unwanted injuries is to progress with a slow but steady pace.

Super confidence in advanced

When a given athlete, relying on his long experience and training, does not periodize his workloads.When, confident in his ability, and in the desire to do heavier training, he forgets to rest for his body.
We think that as much as you are trained, the break is an important part of the success formula.
Isolation exercises in overweight people
One of the things we would put in the "do not do" group is the affinity of some overweight people to insulating exercises (conditionally speaking, single-wound exercises are isolated and multi-layered are called basics).It is much more appropriate when you want to speed up your metabolism and achieve your goal, to train with many movements.

They engage more muscle groups and influence the muscular and nervous system differently (against the isolates).
Multipurpose exercises are heavier and energy-consuming.
Another "do not" from this point is the preference to train small muscle groups instead of big ones.
Our advice, if you find yourself at this point, is not to overlook multi-faceted exercises and big muscle groups. Of course, it is important to adapt the training and the selected moves to your personal condition.

Favorite program
We have met people training in the same program.
Day after day.
Month after month.
Year after year.
Yes, that's so years.
And then they say they are dissatisfied because they have no progress.

It's good to have a favorite program, but it should not be a lifetime. Do not let the comfortable routine get into your training program. Challenge your body, change order, exercise, series, repetitions, weights.
Try to have something different in each workout, tailored to your goal.
  • Do not stare at strangers.
  • Do not talk behind the back of strangers - neither pleasant nor educated. Do not cry.
  • Do not give advice if you are not asked. If you want to protect someone from an injury or see that he is doing something wrong according to your understanding, be careful with your words. You want to help, not insult or irritate the man. Start with, "Excuse me, can I give you goodwill advice?"
  • Do not leave the mess behind you. Arrange the weights and wipe the appliances if you have left wet traces.

  • Do not talk over the phone in a loud tone.
  • Do not go too close to someone who is doing exercise at this time.
  • Do not pass the sight of a person who at this point makes the most of it.
  • Do not unload the weights from a device that has just been trained by someone else. Ask how many of his series remain.
