Everyone make mistakes in the gym during the initial phase but we want to make sure that you should not be doing the same. In order to achieve your goal, the following mistakes must be avoided.
Mistake 1 : Skipping Warm Up Session
This is a very common mistake which people do in the gym. They generally skip the warm up and start lifting weights as soon as they enter in the gym.
Warm up is really important as it prepares your body to start lifting and eliminates the risk of injury. Moreover, it increase the blood flow in your muscles.
Always remember to go for a 5-10 minutes of warm up session before you start lifting weights.
Learn all the benefits of Warm Up.
Mistake 2 : Lack of Knowledge
Another issue with beginners is lack of knowledge which is perfect fine because its just the start and one cannot expect them to know everything.
Also, one should have a learning attitude and never think that you it all. There are many skills which you need to master in fitness. So,never be afraid to ask simple and silly questions.
Mistake 3 : Over Training
It is a very big misconception that if your train more then you will achieve results in short period of time.
Even if you train 45-60 minutes in the beginning, you are all set and leave for your home. There is no point of training in the gym for 2-3 hours a day initially as it will not going to help you.

Mistake 4 : Inconsistency
You need to be consistent with your training and nutrition. Just by joining the gym will not give you results unless you workout everyday and follow a balanced diet.
Workout in the gym at-least 4-5 days in a week even if your schedule is busy. You need to take out time for your goals and to be fit in life.
Mistake 5 : Improper Form
Don’t copy people in the gym.
Maybe few of them are training from 6 months and few with the huge muscles are working out from years.
Always learn from your trainer or coach as you may need to perform different exercises as per your goal.
Mistake 6 : Peer Pressure
Never get disappointed in your life because you may have many other qualities and a different personality which your friends or seniors may not have.
It takes time to build muscles and grow body and nothing can be achieved overnight. You just need to be consistent with your exercise routine and nutrition with the goal in your mind.
Mistake 7 : Rely On Supplements
If your diet is not right then supplements will never help you. Supplements just give you an extra edge and help you with the nutrients which you are lacking in your body.
If you are purchasing any supplement then you must be aware of the functionality of that products because you may or may not require that particular ingredient to achieve your results. So, instead of wasting your money, try to gain as much knowledge as possible before running to a supplement store.
Mistake 8 : No Goals
If you do not have a goal then how will you achieve that. Make short or long term goals and do the required hard work with proper nutrition and exercise plan.
You must have a road map with you otherwise you can be lost in the journey.

Mistake 10 : Steroid Use
Every teenager and young people are talking about steroids. Even if they have just joined the gym, they just talk about steroids most of the time but they unaware of the side effects which people undergo after injecting steroids in their bodies.
Just focus on your exercise, nutrition and give your 100% in the gym. Steroids may give you results for short duration but don’t even know the side effects which you have to suffer throughout your life.
