7 Reasons Why Not Getting The Results You Want

I’ve been there before. I’ve experienced the long lasting plateaus where you never see any results. I’ve struggled to lose an ounce of fat or have my physique look like I could actually even do just a single push-up. I’ve dealt with the constant nagging injuries, the elbow, shoulder, knee and lower back pain. I’ve made myself worse and worse (slower, less mobile, decreased vertical) by following the typical online and magazine fitness advice. I remember walking around at age 35 feeling like I was 75. That’s why I want to help you avoid the same mistakes.

                                                  Here are 7 BIG reasons you can’t get the results you want:

Reason #1: You’re training too heavy

You want to get strong. But constantly going heavy isn’t the best way to reach that goal. All that does is beat you up, fry your CNS and decrease your athletic ability.

Reason #2: You’re using poor technique

To get the most out of every rep you need to know the proper mechanics and correct anatomical positions of each exercise. Few people do.

Reason #3: You’re using exercises that make you worse

Sometimes some the of the classical bodybuilding, power lifting and Olympic lifting exercises. Those movements beat you up and can actually decrease your mobility, flexibility and athleticism. There are far safer, more effective alternatives that HAVE to be staples in your program.

Two of the most common overuse injuries are tennis and golfers elbow. They both come as a result of doing the same motion with an object weighing less than a pound. Imagine what happens when you do the same movement over and over with implements weighing 40, 80 or even 300 pounds?

Variety is not only the spice of life but it’s also what keeps you healthy and in the gym training and making gains.

Reason #4: You’re not using enough variety

Two of the most common overuse injuries are tennis and golfers elbow. They both come as a result of doing the same motion with an object weighing less than a pound. Imagine what happens when you do the same movement over and over with implements weighing 40, 80 or even 300 pounds?

Reason #5: You’re only focused on strengthening your muscles; not your tendons and ligaments

Most programs build stronger muscles but ignore the tendons and ligaments. When this is the case, the tendons and ligaments can’t keep up with the force the muscles are capable of producing. That’s what leads to injury.

Reason #6: You’re doing long duration, steady state cardio

Not only is regular cardio ineffective for burning fat, it’s not even that great your heart. And it sucks for preserving muscle and strength.

Reason #7: You’re killing your natural testosterone production

Your testosterone levels peak some time in your late 20’s. After that you’ve gotta do all you can to stay on top of your game, naturally. So keep your workouts short, avoid adrenal overload, reduce stress levels and fuel your body properly. And get lean! Ignore any of these critical factors and it will be much harder to lose body-fat, gain muscle and perform sexually.

 

I’ve made every one of those mistakes, so I can relate.
