Good honest information about proper weight training and nutrition for building a lean muscular physique is harder to come by than ever before. The problem is information overload. These days we have so much information coming at us from fitness and diet guru’s preaching about their latest breakthroughs on late night TV infomercials everyday. Hundreds, even thousands of exercise and nutrition books fill bookstore shelves. Dozens of magazines clutter the newsstands every month. And to top it all off there are new websites popping up everyday adding to this bog of misinformation at an exponential rate.
There is so much conflicting advice among so called industry professionals, dieticians, research scientists, doctors, trainers, that the average Joe and Jane just doesn’t know who to believe anymore. There are so many opinions out there and everyone seems to tell us something different.
This has left a lot of people frustrated and thoroughly confused. It’s hard to know whom or what to believe anymore. So that’s why in this article I’m going to cover 10 of the most common mistakes people make when it comes to muscle building and provide some solid tips and advice that you can put to use right away to help move yourself in the right direction towards your muscle building goals.
10) Not Being Consistent With Your Workouts:
This is probably the single biggest factor that will determine your success or failure long term. If you are not consistent then it doesn’t matter if you have the most sophisticated scientifically designed workout program on earth, because it will be totally useless to you unless you actually follow it consistently.
A “half assed workout” routine that you follow consistently week after week will produce more real world muscle gains then the most perfectly planned out workout routine that you only follow occasionally.
Every time you complete a workout, you not only build your body, but you develop your character and self esteem. This makes you feel good about yourself and starts a positive upward spiral that reinforces you to be even more committed and more consistent.
Everything you do either helps you, or hurts you. Every single workout, every single meal, they all add up. Building a strong muscular physique is the cumulative result of hundreds of consistent workouts.
