I would like to share with you the 7 Deadly Sins that will destroy your gains. Avoid these 7 misdeeds, and you will soon be on your way to the Muscular and Fitness Promised Land.
Sin #1: Isolation Exercises
Regular bicep curls and cable flys, I’m looking at you. While you feel the pump in the short-term, its exclusivity will be a big hindrance on your overall success.
Sin #2: Sleep Deprivation
The less you sleep, the less capacity for your muscles to recover and grow stronger
Sin #3: Excessive Eating
I don’t care how hard your workouts go, if you fail to eat properly, you will stay skinny, skinny-fat, or fat fat.
Sin #4: Excuses
“I don’t have enough time, I can’t afford a gym membership.” Seriously, if you can’t see past your own excuses, then please stop reading this.
Sin #5: Unstructured Routines
If you’re currently going into the gym without a legit workout routine, you’re setting yourself up for failure.
Sin #6: Impatience
You’re only going to get a little better each day. If you don’t see gains within the first week and let that discourage you, you’ll never make it to the Kingdom of Heavenly Muscle Mass.
Sin #7: Resisting Change
If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you always have gotten. If you’re not ripped yet, it’s time for that change.
