Do You Make These 4 Mistakes When Working Out?

So, most of us want to workout but aren’t exactly sure where or how to start. We do a few push-ups a day, maybe a couple of squats, work up a sweat and we should be good right? Eh…. Not exactly.

For me, losing weight and toning up has always been pretty easy (thanks to my good genes) but that’s not how it is for everyone.

Here, I’ll discuss the 4 major mistakes you may be making and why you probably aren’t losing that weight you so easily thought could shed.

  1. Not being CONSISTENT- You have to be consistent in everything you do for at least 90 days or more. This includes healthy eating habits, working out, taking supplements, etc. You can’t expect to workout for 2 weeks and already start seeing results. It just doesn’t work like that. Although, don’t we all wish it did.. Sigh.. Anyway, same goes for healthy eating and taking health supplements. You can’t do these things when it’s convenient or shall I say not convenient for you. It takes work, but when you start being consistent enough, it turns into a habit, and then that habit turns into a lifestyle. See the pattern here? Stay consistent.
  2. Not drinking enough WATER– Water should be the main thing you are drinking throughout the day. If you didn’t know this already, stick your hand out and plant the palm of your hand on your forehead… No really, do it. Okay okay.. I’ll admit, I’m not the best with drinking water either but, it is one of the most important parts of losing weight. Not to mention, it’s the best and most natural detox for your body. It rids your body of toxins and can even metabolize stored fat. So get that daily intake of water, at least half of your body weight in ounces, and bottoms up!
  3. Not doing cardio- If we do some crunches, some push-ups, maybe squats we will lose weight and tone up at the same time, right? WRONG. Cardio is probably one of the main sources of weightloss. Okay, yes cardio sucks. Nobody wants to do it, unless you’re just some kind of insane person. Kidding, I praise y’all. But it’s extremely important. Why? To burn off the calories. I made the mistake of thinking that if I did 100 crunches a day I’ll for sure get abs, right? Nope. You have to get rid of the fat to see the abs in the first place. “No pain, no gain”. Cardio doesn’t have to be all bad. Dancing is what I love to do. Circuit training is also a good way to go. As long as you get your body moving, you can’t go wrong.
  4. “I want to work out the right way, I don’t need supplements”-  Why yes this could be true for a select few, and I mean SELECT, it is not the case for most people. No matter how much you workout, your body will eventually hit a plateau. You won’t see as DRASTIC results as you once did the first 2 months. And that’s perfectly normal. Sometimes, we need that extra push to get over that plateau. There are supplements that can help increase your metabolism so you burn more calories a day and then there are some that can stimulate the natural production of the HGH hormone to help build lean muscle mass. Whatever the supplement, know that you are not TOO GOOD to take them. Everybody needs help now and then and there is NO shame in getting that extra help.

With that being said, I have a few supplements that I highly recommend for getting you over that plateau. All natural and safe for the heart. I take them now and I am highly satisfied with how fast my metabolism is.
