Staying fit is one of the common mottos due to which we all go to gym. Every day we work out and many a times, we realize that we are not losing the weight that we had actually planned to lose. This may be due to the mistakes that we are making at gym. Apart from the mistakes that don’t allow us stay fit, we also make mistakes that can irritate our colleagues at gym. It is always better that you be careful while you are at gym so that you can achieve your goals for which you are going to gym.
These Are Mistakes You Are Making At Gym
Selecting The Right Gym
Most of us go and visit the gym before we make the payment. While we go there, we should check for proper ventilation, good trainer, good equipment and also a hygienic environment. Most of us look for high end gyms which is crowded due to lot of members. Selecting the right gym is one of the most important favors that you can do to yourself.
When you start with the gym, you can communicate to the trainer regarding the purpose for which you are coming to gym. The trainer will help you out with movements accordingly. Most of us try to achieve numbers that the trainer has assignment and that really is not going to add value to your body. For example, if the trainer asks you to do hundred pushups then you may finish it in a hush-hush manner so that you can learn more from the trainer. If the movements aren’t appropriate then that will not help you to achieve the desired results.
Nobody likes to go to the gym but we are all forced to do that so that we can stay fit and also have the body that we desire. Most of us don’t go to gym consistently. If you are one of them then you can be rest assured that you are not going to achieve the result that you desire. Most of you all may be thinking that we will go to gym, once in a week and do all that needs to be done to stay fit. This will not yield results and to add on, you will also suffer from problems like muscle cramps and severe pain in the body.
If you forgetting to do some warm ups before you start with exercising then you are missing out an important aspect that helps you to work-out more. It is very important that you reach gym on time and start with work outs. If you directly start with exercises then your body will not be in a situation to deal with sudden change. If you are doing this then it means that you are giving an open invitation to injury at gym.
Same Set Of Exercises
A good trainer will teach you different set of exercises that you can practice on daily basis. Most of us start with a particular set of exercises and we feel good about the results that we see and hence, we continue with the same set of exercises. This is a wrong thing to do. Your body will react effectively to a certain set of exercises for a certain time period only. After some time, your body will get used to it and hence, results will be almost zero. It is very important that you change the exercises on at least weekly basis.
Too Many Friends
Everybody knows that gym is a painful thing and it is always better to have friends over there so that you can socialize with them and relax. Before we do this, we should remember and accept to the fact that every person at the gym is willing to have a fit body and that is the reason due to which everyone is hitting the gym. If you socialize too much in the gym then it means that you are distracting your workout schedule and also the schedule of others.
This generation cannot survive without mobile phones but that doesn’t mean that we carry our mobile phones with us at all point of time. It is better that you leave the mobile phones in your locker while entering the gym. If you put your mobile in vibration mode and put it in your pocket then someone may call you while you are running in the treadmill. If your mobile rings then this can be a disturbance to you as well as others in the gym.
Very less people consume energy drink after a heavy workout session. This is a very good thing to do. You should consume a protein drink so that you can regain the energy that you have lost due to heavy workouts. You can be rest assured that you will not gain the lost weight. If you don’t consume energy drink after the workout then there are possibilities that you may feel weak and in extreme cases, you may also faint.
