Frequent mistakes we tend to commit in the beginning

You are going to be disappointed if you have no idea why you are doing what you are doing and how you can reach your goals

Knowledge is power. The more you know about health and fitness, the more successful you become in bodybuilding! The opposite is just as true! You are going to be disappointed if you have no idea why you are doing what you are doing and how you can reach your goals

Opt for the pleasant, not for what’s comfortable. Don’t go on a diet simply because you like it. This rule applies for exercise, as well. Think through what your body needs, then replenish it.

TOO MUCH CARDIO

Ladies tend to be convinced that the best way for them to shape their body is through cardio and that weight training will make them only grow big and put on weight. Well, the goal is to have a tight, toned and slim look, isn’t it? The cardio training in itself will not give you this! If you want to shape your body, you should do some training with weights, too! You don’t have to forget about cardio at all, but it is much less important than spending your whole life on the step machine.

EXTREMELY LOW CALORIE INTAKE

Some people change their bad diet to a zero-calorie intake. They don’t eat anything all day long, because they are on a diet. Starvation is the worst solution when you want to lose weight. It will only result in your body starting to store everything and you will not be able to last long and then you devour the content of the entire fridge. Never go below 1200 calories, but it is way more reasonable to think through your diet and take in the right quality and quantity of food with 5 to 6 meals a day.

DOING THE SAME WORKOUT PLAN FOR YEARS

When you encounter something new, people tend to play it safe. You start a programme where you can’t be hurt. The problem is that you get stuck there and continue to do the same programme for years. Pay attention and change your workout plan every second or third month, but if you are at an advanced level you can do a different exercise or try a new method at every training!

YOU ARE NOT WORKING HARD ENOUGH

There are ladies who think that if they simply take part in a few aerobic classes they have it all and in two weeks’ time they will be as slim as ever. That is a huge misconception that results in disillusionment! Your muscles must be stimulated if you want them to change. It means that you should do the right intensity of trainings. If you don’t grow tired, if you don’t sweat, then your training is worth nothing.

UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS

Your goals should always be realistic and for the short-term. It is not forbidden to dream about the distant future, but you should always keep in mind the goal that you can reach within a shorter period of time. If your dream is to stand on the stage as a competitor, your workout should not focus on you being on stage in three months’ time, but that you should weigh 10kg less in 3 months’ time.

Unrealistic expectations can easily lead to overtraining and injuries.

WHEN YOU THINK IT IS ONLY HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING THAT CAN HELP YOU BURN FAT

No matter what exercise you do, you can always use fat, carbohydrate and protein for energy generation, but it matters in what proportion they are represented. A longer term, moderate exercise will ultimately result in the utilisation of more fat. Interval trainings will burn the same amount of calories, but to a lesser extent of fat. At the same time, interval trainings – when performed for several hours – can lead to a higher amount of energy used. You shouldn’t forget about when, what and how you eat!

PREFER LOW-FAT PRODUCTS

Don’t simply pay attention to the fat content of the meals, because all the other nutrients are important, too! Some food might be low in fat, but it can contain twice as much sugar compared with the regular version that is not low-fat. Always pay attention to the nutritional values! It should have a relatively high protein and low sugar and fat content!

YOU THINK THAT DIABETIC PRODUCTS ARE ALSO FOR WEIGHT LOSS DIET

Diabetic products might be useful, but not when consumed without limits, since their calorie content is not that much different from the non-diabetic ones, they only contain other nutrients. These are typically slow-absorbing carbohydrates that are useful in weight loss, but not enough in themselves!

A LITTLE ALCOHOL WON’T HURT

Alcohol has the highest calorie content and it doesn’t contain any useful nutrients. If weight loss is important for you, your whole week dieting can be destroyed with a night out!
